The New Blood: Leonel VHS

27 June 2016 4:23 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

*We’ve been letting you fright fanatics know more about the Icons of Fright staffers, more specifically the ones who have joined the fold within the last year or so. Since Icons of Fright’s inception (2004!!), the site has had the privilege of having some really great writers and creators and before joining the team, I frequented it quite regularly as a reader, so I thought it would be a fun idea to let you know about the current crop. My good bud, Leonel VHS is highlighted on this one, so enjoy!       –Jerry

Hailing from the Central Valley of California, my love for horror films began in 1982 at the age of eight when, because of curiosity, my father sat me down in front of the original Friday the 13th as both a cruel prank and as an attempt to scare me away from them altogether.

Drive-In Dust Offs: Demons (1985)

21 May 2016 11:28 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Movies are so rarely great art that if we cannot appreciate great trash we have very little reason to be interested in them. – Pauline Kael.

The above quote from the late, legendary American film critic Kael was most certainly not referring to Lamberto Bava’s Demons (1985), but a lot of films in our beloved genre bow to this description. Demons is great trash – it wants nothing more to assault your senses with a barrage of images and sound for 88 minutes before you even know what hit you, and does so while breathing that rarified Italian air.

But I’m sure she was referring to a film like Demons – one made with a ton of style, by a filmmaker impassioned with his chosen topic, as ridiculous as that plays on the screen. And make no mistake, Demons is ridiculous; as a matter of fact, it starts there before rapidly ascending to the sublime. »

Bluray Review: What Have You Done To Solange?

25 March 2016 3:23 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

As the then brand-new format of the Digital Versatile Disc began making it presence quite apparent in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, hundreds upon hundreds of horror films that had either been forgotten or banished into obscurity suddenly began to resurface and slowly obtain a devoted audience. Everything from lesser-known slashers and overlooked art-house fare to catalogs full of lushly photographed pieces all coming out of the seventies and eighties  were either finding their first ever releases on the format or being re-released in limited special editions.  Distributors like early forerunners Anchor Bay were taking it upon themselves to locate and dig out these movies, give them glorious restorations and special features and release them to the buying public, delighting horror connoisseurs across the world. What resulted was an overwhelmingly renewed interest in and unexpected demands for films of that era, in particular the giallo that all began in »

5 Dolls for an August Moon

23 February 2016 10:30 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

A "lesser" Mario Bava is still a fountain of great filmmaking; and this annihilating melodrama sees a score of greedy folk wiped out at an island retreat, for fun and profit. Shot (and stabbed) through with Bava's visual imagination, it's a sexy, memorable murder thriller. With an authoritative Tim Lucas commentary. 5 Dolls for an August Moon Region B Blu-ray + Pal DVD Arrow Video (UK) 1970 / Color / 1:85 widescreen / 81 min. / Street Date February 1, 2016 / 5 bambole per la luna d'agosto / Available from Amazon UK £14.99 Starring William Berger, Ira von Fürstenberg, Edwige Fenech, Howard Ross, Helena Ronee, Teodoro Corrà, Ely Galleani, Edith Meloni, Mauro Bosco, Maurice Poli Cinematography Antonio Rinaldi Production Designer Giuseppe Aldrovandi, Giulia Mafai Film Editor Mario Bava Original Music Piero Umiliani Writing credits Mario di Nardo Produced by Luigi Alessi Directed by Mario Bava

Blu-ray Review – Five Dolls for an August Moon (1970)

31 January 2016 10:25 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Five Dolls for an August Moon, 1970.

Directed by Mario Bava.

Starring William Berger, Ira von Fürstenberg, Edwige Fenech, Howard Ross, Teodora Corrá, Edith Meloni, Helena Ronee, Maurice Poli and Justine Gall.


A group of people trapped on an island discover there is a killer in their midst.

The romantically-titled Five Dolls for an August Moon is a giallo from the master of the genre, Mario Bava. However, unlike his more notable works in the style such as Blood & Black Lace and Bay of Blood, Five Dolls for an August Moon was something of a cheque-cashing exercise for the filmmaker, who later claimed that this film was the worst thing he ever made, although looking at it now on this sparkly new Blu-ray from Arrow Video and comparing it to Bava’s other movies it would be fair to say the director may have been a bit harsh on himself. »
