Welcome to FICTIONAL FRIGHTS, an on-going series of short stories, provided by not only the Icons of Fright staff, but by industry friends and friends in general.

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 […]

Horror Posters Made Of Vinyl Records? Check Out TransylVinyl!

A couple of months back, I got together with a handful of friends to catch CABIN IN THE WOODS on the big screen and I met a filmmaker named Colton Tran through out mutual friends. When he found out that I worked at a record store (technically in the video department), he broke out his […]

Do YOU Remember The Days of VCR HORRORS? You Turned Out Fine, Right?

Ha! This is kind of interesting to watch now in retrospect, and I stumbled upon it completely by accident as I was searching for old live videos of the band Vision Of Disorder. (Long Island, NY represent!) It’s an “expose” segment from the 80’s on 20/20 about “VCR HORRORS” and how kids were too obsessed […]

SUICIDE SILENCE Bring Out The Zombies In Their New Music Video!

Back when Mike C and I created Icons Of Fright back in 2004, we never could’ve possibly imagined that zombies would become as popular as they have become. I mean, video games? THE WALKING DEAD; a hit television series based on an on-going zombie comic-book? Fulci’s infamous “zombie versus shark” scene in a Window’s 7 […]
