Trailers From Hell Unearths John Carpenter's 'The Thing'

25 June 2014 9:56 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Today on Trailers from Hell, Jesus Trevino talks John Carpenter's creepy 1982 cult classic "The Thing." In contrast to Howard Hawks' trim and efficient "The Thing from Another World" released in 1951, John Carpenter's 1982 remake is an effects-heavy affair that generates most of its suspense from the startling permutations of Rob Bottin's alien make-ups. Kurt Russell delivers another squint-eyed, Clint Eastwood-inspired performance and he’s helped by a supporting cast (including Wilfred Brimley and Richard Dysart) that give convincingly anxiety-ridden turns. Ennio Morricone provides an eerie score (though Carpenter was compelled to add a few musical passages of his own to the soundtrack). »

Jerry’s Ten Greatest Horror Films Of All Time!!

28 March 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

What better way to celebrate Icons of Fright’s ten year anniversary, than with a barrage of our favorites?, whether they be lists of our favorite entries into the French horror genre, our favorite badasses, or like this one, the films that make up what is (in my opinion), the greatest horror films of all time. Like always, art is subjective, so before you rabid fright fiends call foul on me, just remember, this is “Jerry’s Ten Greatest Horror Films of All Time”, so it is just that: mine. So if you disagree, comment and tell me yours, as Icons of Fright has always been for the fans and comprised Of fans, so feel free to sound off! With all of that said, it’s go time!
