Greetings Fright fans! As our devoted readers know, something we’ve done here on the site for the last several years is arrange and record what we refer to as “pirate commentaries,” commentary tracks that you can’t find on DVD or Blu-Ray releases or anywhere else for that matter! You can hit up our Pirate Commentary page Right Here for tracks on the original Fright Night, Child’S Play, Nightwing and Halloween 6: The Curse Of Michael Myers! But since it’s December, we decided to do a holiday themed one just for the fun of it!
Icons Of Fright is proud to present a “fan commentary” for Silent Night Deadly Night Part 2 featuring Icons Of Fright co-creator Rob Galluzzo (aka Rob G) and Icons friend/actor extraordinaire Aj Bowen. (The Sacrament, You’Re Next, The House Of The Devil, The Signal) Sure, neither of us have anything to do with this movie. »

To help make things easier, we’ve put together the initial list of our holiday gift suggestions, which include cannibal wine, classic horror shirts, vinyl figures and Blu-ray collections.
While a handful of these items are only available at select websites, you should be able to find some pretty good sales on other items starting tonight. Specifically, Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart will have big sales on Blu-ray/DVD titles and video games. We’d like to give Tamika Jones a big thanks for helping put this guide together.

Tim Robbins starred in the original as a Vietnam veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder who begins experiencing increasingly bizarre hallucinations that bleed into his everyday life. While many have debated the final twist of the film, the movie is mostly remembered for its truly bizarre and intensely surreal moments.
"Midnight Meat Train" writer Jeff Buhler is penning the script for the new version which has been described as a homage rather than an outright remake. The plan is to "contemporize the story with new situations and characters but still maintain a story that examines issues and poses existential questions."

A good horror movie protagonist has to be able to do two things. They have to be likable enough that you actually care about them when they’re put in danger by whatever horrific threat they’re facing down, and they have to project enough vulnerability that you really believe they might not come out of the other end of the story all in one piece. Being a great protagonist in a horror comedy is a little bit more complicated of a job though. Not only do horror comedy heroes have to accomplish both of those tasks, but they also have to be funny, and they have to be able to make the transitions in tone from scary to funny without having the change feel jarring to the audience or without making it feel like these two different aspects of the film are at odds with each other. Horror comedies need a talented actor. A »

Since his last foray onto the big screen with The Hole in 2009, Joe Dante has been kicking it in TV land, directing episodes of Splatter and Hawaii Five-o. That’s all about to change, however, as this former apprentice of Roger Corman is set to return to cinemas with Burying The Ex.
The forthcoming horror-comedy features a script by newcomer Alan Trezza, who already made his own short film of the story back in 2008. It tells the tale of young couple, Max and Evelyn, whose relationship runs aground when they move in together, and Max discovers an unpleasant, controlling and manipulative side to his partner. While fearfully pondering how best to break up with her, fate intervenes and Evelyn is killed in a freak accident. Problem solved, as far as Max is concerned but, as he tries to move on with new love interest Olivia, Evelyn rises from the dead, »

Jess Walter’s generation-spanning romance Beautiful Ruins tore up the bestseller charts and topped critical best-of lists when it was released last year, so no one was really surprised when Cross Creek Pictures and Smuggler Films promptly snapped up rights to the film adaptation. Interest in the project shot up dramatically, however, when Todd Field, the acclaimed director of In the Bedroom and Little Children signed on to direct. Now, Beautiful Ruins has its first actress as Field has selected the rising Imogen Poots to star in the film.
Poots will portray Dee Moray, a gorgeous ingenue who escapes to an Italian village during the 1962 shoot of Cleopatra when she’s told that she is dying. Walter’s book followed her story while also exploring a parallel plot set in modern-day Hollywood.

With seven years passing since Todd Field's last film, 2006's "Little Children," fans of the director have had to be patient in waiting for his next movie. Taking a Stanley Kubrick-like stretch between pictures (the late filmmaker was a mentor to Field, who had a small role in "Eyes Wide Shut"), five years spanned between his debut feature "In The Bedroom" and his aforementioned sophomore film. But it looks like things are finally happening for "Beautiful Ruins," as the project now has a lead actress. The rising Imogen Poots ("Fright Night," "Jane Eyre") has bagged the lead role in the adaptation of Jess Walter's bestselling novel. Field adapted the screenplay that is set in the spring of 1962 off of the Ligurian Sea. It centers on three young characters whose orbit around one another is set in motion by an incident during the shooting of "Cleopatra" and continues on for decades. »

Actor--turned-director Todd Field has not made a name for himself by being highly prolific, but the two feature films he has directed, 2001's In the Bedroom and 2006's Little Children , both garnered multiple Oscar nominations. Now comes word that Field is set to make a return to directing with his adaptation of Jess Walter's bestselling novel Beautiful Ruins with British actress Imogen Poots ( Fright Night ) being attached to star in the role of Dee Moray.

Actor returns to face old foe in Doctor Who's 50th anniversary special, possibly the TV event of 2013, then is off to crack Us
Regularly acclaimed as the nation's favourite Time Lord, the former Doctor Who star David Tennant is accustomed to travelling through space and time. But even if he had a real-life Tardis it is unlikely that he would travel beyond the here and now, such is his ubiquity across screen and stage.
From his lead role in the ITV murder mystery Broadchurch to his return to the Royal Shakespeare Company in Richard II, via leading parts in BBC dramas The Politician's Husband and The Escape Artist, Tennant's tilt at world domination is enough to make the Daleks jealous.

There are myriad reasons why some horror films don’t make a connection with moviegoers, and in turn fail to live up to the expectations set by the studios that financed them. Sometimes it’s because a movie simply isn’t any good, but often a film’s lack of box office success can be attributed to circumstances beyond the filmmakers’ control: factors like lack of appropriate promotion, bad marketing, poorly-timed release dates and unduly harsh critical reception can work against an otherwise decent film's success. There are countless well-made movies that get a bad rap for one reason or another, and we think it’s a damn shame that moviegoers often miss out. Because we love an underdog story, we're showing our appreciation for these under-appreciated horror titles by highlighting five of our favorites... Slither I cannot say enough good things about Slither. It cleverly blends comedy with horror, »
