TV Review: Outcast – Episode 7: “The Damage Done”

13 hours ago

Reverend Anderson has officially lost his shit. After being branded by Sidney in a pretty brutal manner in episode 6, his mark is difficult to hide, but his fire burning within spreads. His ego grows and the undeniable suspicion that Sidney is Satan himself is hard to avoid. Anderson blatantly believes Sidney is terrified of him and poses as some kind of threat, despite avoiding the chance to kill him at his most vulnerable. I’m not going to lie: Anderson is getting extremely annoying and is causing Outcast to drag a bit as his vanity driven outbursts prove to be cringe worthy moments. I look at him the same way everyone in town does when he begins to shout and scream during a memorial for an incident that was supposed to claim Kyle’s life as well. Anderson’s own stubbornness is what ultimately prevents anyone from believing him or »

Editorial: Why It’S Finally Time For Another Blair Witch Pt.1

13 hours ago

I was 13 when I convinced my mom to take me to the theater located inside our local mall to see a movie she didn’t know anything about called The Blair Witch Project. Prior to seeing it, I would log on to AOL and reread the timeline on www.blairwitch.com so I would know a fictionalized history of Burkittsville, Maryland. The found footage genre was nothing revolutionary, but it felt fresh to mainstream audiences who had no idea what they were getting into when walking into the theater. Vague TV spots and trailers promised footage of three young filmmakers who disappeared in the woods while making a documentary about a local legend called the Blair Witch. I knew going in that it wasn’t real, but my mother had no clue. We had a crowded screening and remember the need for reassurance that the movie was indeed over after »

Bluray Review: Crimes Of Passion

13 hours ago

How can one describe Crimes Of Passion, Ken Russell’s ode to sexual frustration and unhappiness? On the surface, it appears the be the story of a prostitute, China Blue (Kathleen Turner), a street preacher named Rev. Shayne (Anthony Perkins), and a home security expert named Bobby (John McLaughlin) who finds himself taking a job to follow China Blue and stumbles into far more than he expected. To say anything more than this about the story would do a disservice to the subversion of expectations of the material that director Ken Russell and writer Barry Sandler bake into this delirious concoction. This film isn’t for everybody, and if you’ve seen any of Ken Russell’s work, The Devils (1971), Tommy (1974), or Gothic (1986) to name a few, you’ll know he has a very distinct aesthetic that is unique and commands a certain dedication on the part of the viewer »

Editorial: I Support Rihanna As Marion Crane

13 hours ago

Let’s start with a fair warning: if you are not caught up on Bates Motel and want to avoid spoilers, then stop reading now!! In order to make my argument, I have to make specific references to events in the series.

Ok, so as everyone knows, Rihanna was recently announced as the new Marion Crane to be introduced during the final season of Bates Motel. The reactions only are of, let’s just say, of a strong nature. I anticipated seeing more reactions towards the fact that Rihanna is 100% a pop star and hasn’t dabbled too much into acting aside from small roles here and there. What I didn’t anticipate was the race card. Seriously? It’s 2016 and we have a black president. Get the fuck over it, people! What sparks my curiosity is how the conversation started with the possibility of having her on the show. »

The New Blood: Joshua Soriano

14 hours ago

My name is Josh Soriano and I’m the Co-Editor here at Icons of Fright. My romance with the horror genre started early on in life when my dad took me into a little video store, with maroon carpeted walls no less, and rented Tod Browning’s Dracula for me on Betamax (you analog purists must be creaming your pants at the thought). I had never seen a “horror movie” and asked him to help me pick out one. I still somewhat vividly remember the emotions I was taken over with when I saw Bela Lugosi step down the eroding stairs of his Transylvania abode. It wasn’t fear. It was love at first site. I instantly wanted that castle as my home, exploring its corridors with a candelabra, whisking spider webs aside in a monochrome world. The idea that a single movie can completely change your life and give »
