(Editor’s Note: For this weeks’ A LOOK BACK AT, our regular contributor Josh Soriano turns his gaze towards the 6th installment in the HALLOWEEN franchise: THE CURSE OF MICHAEL MYERS!)

HALLOWEEN 5 – The Most Misleading Teaser To The Most Disappointing Michael Myers Film


One of my fondest rites of passage into becoming a full fledged horror nut was when I got to see my first theatrical HALLOWEEN movie in theaters. I was 12 years old when I witnessed HALLOWEEN 4: THE RETURN OF MICHAEL MYERS on the big-screen and at that point I’d already read everything that Fangoria […]

Icons Firsts: HALLOWEEN!!

Like all of you fright fiends, the ICONS OF FRIGHT staff all have a genuine love for the genre. We eat and breathe this stuff, and it’s always fun to sit back and think of the first times that we each experienced the classics. Already having covered A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and THE EVIL […]

A 25th Anniversary Look Back At: HALLOWEEN 4!!

I wrote a “Look Back At” article on the deeply flawed, but still entertaining HALLOWEEN 5 back in Februrary (here), so I’ve been conscientiously trying to focus on different franchises or one-offs, and let Michael rest.
