Rob G.’s Top 10 Horror Films Of 2014!
24 December 2014 4:54 PM, PST
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 independent efforts. If you’ve listened to the latest episode of Killer Pov, then you’ll already know my picks, but I didn’t want that to deter from my annual tradition here on Icons. So without further adieu, here we go! My top 10 horror picks of 2014!
10 – Cheap Thrills
The definition of what we personally consider “horror” has changed and evolved so drastically over the years. Granted, I’m guilty of constantly claiming certain “fringe” titles are Not horror. But the older I get, true horror to me are the things that people do to each other. »

23 December 2014 12:58 PM, PST
After making an impression on film festivals from coast to coast, Robert G. Hall’s Fear Clinic is set to scare the hell out of audiences when it hits DVD/Bluray on February 10th via Anchor Bay. The film adaption of the popular FEARnet series, Fear Clinic stars A Nightmare On Elm Street‘s Robert Englund, Fiona Dourif (Curse Of Chucky), Angelina Armani (Chromeskull: Laid To Rest II), Thomas Dekker (Laid To Rest, “The Sarah Connor Chronicles“), as well as Stone Sour/Slipknot frontman, Corey Taylor, in his film debut.
“Co-written by Hall and Aaron Drane, the film is based on the critically acclaimed and fan favorite 2009 FEARnet.com series. When trauma-induced phobias begin to re-emerge in five survivors a year after their horrifying tragedy, they return to the “Fear Clinic,” hoping to find the answers they need to get cured.

The Guest: Blu-Ray Review (You really, really need to buy this)
22 December 2014 4:01 PM, PST
As I stated in my end of the year top 15 film list; “Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett’s You’Re Next was my favorite horror film of 2013, and their genre bending action/horror/thriller The Guest was probably my favorite theatrical experience of 2014. Thanks to a limited theatrical run, I drove nearly an hour just to see this film, and my date and I were the only ones in the theatre. I loved You’Re Next, but The Guest was truly next-level for these guys. Dan Stevens as “David” is the new Christopher Sarandon’s “Jerry Dandridge,” and the soundtrack is absolutely to die for. Everything about this film was carefully thought out and executed, and it shows. Every moment, every frame is cinematically stunning, and it’s a hell of a lot of fun.” The Guest is one of those films that you get excited to show to other people, »
