ScaryMovie-featureimage

A decade back when we first started Icons Of Fright, one of my personal favorite columns here was from my dear friend Jason Alvino called “The Vault Of The Forgotten & Obscure!” While tons of titles that we had vague memories of as kids were still trickling into the ever-growing DVD market at the time, […]

There’s something easy to latch onto with films that take the Agatha Christie written “And Then There Were None” (or TEN LITTLE INDIANS) and give it a brand new spin. I happen to love films that fall into that category, as it’s always a lot of fun to watch a film based on a group […]

_MG_8412 - Copy (1)

I love the horror genre. I eat and breathe all things genre, but to be perfectly honest, very little keeps me thinking and recalling a film as soon as it’s done. There are just so many films coming out these days, a lot of which come and go, without really making any kind of mark […]

Review: THE MIDNIGHT GAME

TMG

Five friends decide to play a game that ultimately unleashes an evil that begins to make their worst fears come true. While that premise has been done quite a few times, and isn’t one that’s all that original, A.D. Calvo’s THE MIDNIGHT GAME succeeds at doing what any film playing in those waters should do: giving viewers […]

Just in case you fright fanatics are in the gross-out mood, we’ve got a pretty gnarly opening clip from the Tony Burgess (PONTYPOOL)/Jesse Thomas Cook (MONSTER BRAWL) collaboration SEPTIC MAN. Having seen the film, it’s definitely not for the squeamish, but is guaranteed to please genre fans who live to be shocked. I honestly don’t […]
