A Look Back At Rob G.’s FEARnet Video Interviews

This upcoming April will mark the one year anniversary of the dissolution of FEARnet, both as a network and a website. For me in particular, it’s difficult because a lot of the staff I was fortunate enough to share office space with worked really, really hard on the output that appeared both on the cable […]

Rob G.’s TOP 10 HORROR FILMS OF 2014!

Welcome, fellow fiends! Another year come and gone & it was quite a year for independent cinema. Not a single “studio” picture on my list, which isn’t surprising, considering some of the greatest horror films of all time – HALLOWEEN, THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE, BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, etc – were all innovative low budget […]

Icons Pirate Commentary: THE WARRIORS with Sean Clark & Rob G!

It’s been a while since we here at Icons Of Fright have been able to host a new “pirate commentary.” And so we were excited when the prospect of this special WARRIORS one came together. I’ve always been a fan of the film; I have vague memories of seeing it during frequent re-runs on cable. A […]

TFW 2014 Review: What Sets Frightmare Apart From the Rest

As always, I had so much fun at Texas Frightmare Weekend!

10 Years Of ICONS OF FRIGHT! A Note From The Editors…

I’m somewhat at a loss for words right now. And not just because I haven’t had the chance to contribute much lately here on ICONS, but because I find it absolutely hard to accept that we’re about to hit our milestone 10 year anniversary. Mike C & I launched Icons Of Fright as the ultimate […]

ICONS OF FRIGHT PRESENTS ROB G.’S TOP 5 SDTKS OF 2013!

Ya know what? I love soundtracks. And one of the (many) things that sets our beloved horror genre apart from other genres of film is the ambitious and radical music that usually accompanies our fright filled movies. 2013 was a strong, strong year for horror, but more than anything, there was a huge resurgence in […]

Beyond Fright – “I Was At Nirvana Unplugged…”

“I Was At Nirvana: Unplugged…” I’ve got a confession to make. When I was about 17 years old, I was at MTV’s live taping of Nirvana’s now legendary Unplugged performance. I didn’t realize at the time just how important this gig would end up being, both for the band and for pop culture music history […]
