Let’s just face it: Scream Factory’s insane amount of releases aren’t about to slow down anytime soon, and well, I think I speak for most horror fans when I say that that’s something to celebrate. Not only are they continually putting out great Bluray releases of older and almost forgotten titles like their Tentacles/Reptilicus, but the Collector’s Editions like the recently announced People Under The Stairs and I, Madman releases are definitely ones to celebrate.
In case you fright fanatics haven’t been paying attention or just haven’t gotten around to checking out some of the oncoming onslaught of titles, here are a few that are quite exciting for us at Icons of Fright. Read on!
It’s angry. It’s hungry. It’s extremely well-armed and it’s descending on a small seaside town to sample the local cuisine! »

Stars: Amber Benson, Angela Bettis, Aj Bowen, Jose Pablo Cantillo, James Duval, William Forsythe, Eddie Hargitay, Danielle Harris, Noah Hathaway, Marc Senter, Megan Thompson, Alex Urbom, Ray Wise | Written and Directed by Tom Holland
Originally conceived and made as a 9-episode web series for the now defunct FearNet, Tom Holland’s Twisted Tales has been released on to DVD as yet another horror anthology rather than TV show – running a huge 144 minutes – encompassing the entire series in one “movie”; and an inconsistent movie at that.
Some would say that you have to give web-based programming some leaway, after all budgets aren’t as high etc. However when said web series comes from FearNet, a site that had backing and had the resources, you have to wonder why they didn’t spend that little bit more money to make something a little more polished. Apparently the budget for Twisted Tales was »

TV One original movie, "The Summoning," premieres tomorrow Saturday, June 6 at 8 p.m. Et on TV One, directed by Charles Murray, and starring Paula Jai Parker, Terrell Tilford, Dorian Missick, Darius McCrary, Storm Reid, and Diandra Lyle. In the past, TV One has not been good at executing genre work. "Fright Night" and "Fear Files" have bordered on being unwatchable, and, in a word, lazy. So much so that I feared deeply for the viewers who are largely African American adults, assuming that more than a few would imagine the horror/thriller genre as nothing but cheap, gimmicky, ridiculous fare. If these projects that are written by, »

In the past, TV One has not been good at executing genre work. "Fright Night" and "Fear Files" have bordered on being unwatchable, and, in a word, lazy. So much so that I feared deeply for the viewers who are largely African American adults, assuming that more than a few would imagine the horror/thriller genre as nothing but cheap, gimmicky, ridiculous fare. If these projects that are written by, directed by, and star us, maintain a level of lethargy and just plain cheesiness, people who aren't directly fans of these genres won't take the time to further see how entertaining, informative, and transformative these genres can be. We will remain the butt of the »

Spoiler alert: Interview reveals certain details about the film The Lobster. While Hollywood has piled on a number of reboots on Colin Farrell’s lap (read Fright Night and Total Recall) the Irish actor continues to revolutionize his craft by playing against his swaggering type in such smart titles as Seven Psychopaths, In Bruges and Ondine. In Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Lobster, Farrell portrays a sensitive, single guy, David, adrift in the middle-age relationship world. He… »

The partnership between genre favorites Scream Factory and IFC Midnight has definitely been a good one, with the team-up doing quite an excellent job putting out some pretty entertaining films, with everything from Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook to The Vicious Brothers’ Extraterrestrial all being must have releases for horror fans. Adding even more solid titles to their partnership roster, Sf & IFC have now announced the July 7th DVD/Bluray release date for both Paul Solet’s Dark Summer and Jabbar Raisani’s Very solid film Alien Outpost. It’s been a while since Solet’s last film (the extremely effective and original 2009 motherly tale, Grace), so Dark Summer hitting shelves is some excellent news, and Alien Outpost is yet another very well done take on both the found footage-like subgenre and alien invasion flicks.

The perfect blend between terror and tongue-in-cheek humour, Twisted Tales is out on DVD and to own or rent digitally on 15th June, courtesy of Bulldog Film Distribution.
A new psychotic drug with the power to see into the future reveals a shocking, mind-melting fate for the characters of “Bite”, while Mongo The Magnificent (Ray Wise) comes face to face with horror with a mirror unlike any other. A Saw-like trap ticks throughout the intense “Boom” starring Noah Hathaway (The Never-Ending Story) and dire consequence are in store when you make a contract with a demon from Hell in “To Hell With You”.
Turn left at the next roundabout and face your doom as “Fred & his Gps” take a trip Fred (A J Bowen) will never forget. »

Fresh out of making one hell of a splash at this week’s Stanley Film Festival, the Adam Egypt Mortimer-helmed horror flick Some Kind Of Hate, has now been acquired by Image Entertainment/Rlj, joining Joe Dante’s Burying The Ex and another film that I’m anxious to check out, Dark Was The Night. Image has done a great job picking up some interesting and entertaining genre films lately, and the fact that they jumped at the chance to pick up Some Kind Of Hate just shows that they’re committed to bringing horror fans interesting and thought-provoking films. Adding to the excitement, Mortimer is confidently becoming a jack of all trades, with previously not only directing music videos for bands like Against Me!, but producing the upcoming horror anthology Holidays, as well as putting out one of the most entertaining comics of recent time, Ballistic.
