Minds of Monsters: A Look Inside Twiztid’s Psychomania Tour

Minds of Monsters: A Look Inside Twiztid’s Psychomania Tour

In October of 2003, Paradox Development released a terrible “wrestling” game titled ‘Backyard Wrestling.’ At the time this game was fantastic, but I was 11 and didn’t know any better. Little did I know that this game would honestly change my life forever. The entire promotion for the game was built around the inclusion of the […]

Around the World and Back: State Champs at Baltimore Soundstage

Around the World and Back: State Champs at Baltimore Soundstage

There was no mistaking that when I arrived at Baltimore Soundstage on Sunday, May 7th, I was completely out of my element. I walked up sporting my Brandon Carlisle (RIP) Teenage Bottlerocket t-shirt and felt completely judged by the countless high school children that lined the outside of the venue. This was a fantastic feeling…I […]

You Can’t Stop Rock ‘n’ Roll: A First-Timer’s Look At The M3 Rock Festival

You Can’t Stop Rock ‘n’ Roll: A First-Timer’s Look At The M3 Rock Festival

It’s no secret that I’m the youngin’ here at Icon Vs. Icon. At 25 years old, I was a baby when grunge came onto the scene and I wasn’t even thought of when most of the bands that play Maryland’s annual M3 Rock Festival were kicking ass on their original run. I’m much more of a […]

Unsung Heroes of Hollywood: The Films of Miles Dougal

Unsung Heroes of Hollywood: The Films of Miles Dougal

Every month I will look at an actor, actress, or filmmaker I grew up loving and who informed my career (if calling what I do in the industry qualifies as such) in writing or performing. Films are supposed to be fun, entertaining ventures allowing an escape from mundane day-to-day happenings. Why not celebrate the uncelebrated, […]

Horror On Blu-ray: This Ain’t the Terrordome! It’s ‘Tales from the Hood’!

“Welcome to hell, m*therf*ckers!” Alright, now that I got that out of the way, let’s talk Tales from the Hood. Released on May 24th, 1995, Tales from the Hood is an urban horror film that plays out in the vein of British anthology films such as “Tales from the Crypt” (hence the name). It starred […]

Concert Review: Bowling For Soup Take Baltimore Soundstage By Storm!

Concert Review: Bowling For Soup Take Baltimore Soundstage By Storm!

“I swear, I did not eat the singer of Bowling for Soup”. This is the quote that pretty much sums up the night of April 4th, 2017 … and I mean that in the GREATEST WAY POSSIBLE! I’ve been a Bowling For Soup fan for as long as I can remember. While they reached their […]

Horror On Blu-ray: ‘Deadtime Stories’ — The Perfect Sleep Aid

Horror On Blu-ray: ‘Deadtime Stories’ — The Perfect Sleep Aid

Listen, it’s hard to be taken seriously in the horror community when you’re a “youngin’”. Having been born in 1992 I missed out on some of the more obscure titles of the 80’s and before. Thankfully we’ve reached a point where everyone and their mother has a distribution company, and we’re getting fantastic releases of […]

THE DEVIL’S CANDY: Ethan Embry Slays In Sean Byrne’s Tasty New Flick!

THE DEVIL’S CANDY: Ethan Embry Slays In Sean Byrne’s Tasty New Flick!

Metal and horror go together like peanut butter and jelly. As cliché as that sounds, there’s no better way to put it. From graphic album covers to “shock rock” acts such as Alice Cooper or Gwar, rock and roll/metal and horror are like two peas in a pod. There’ve been multiple 80’s horror films that […]

Horror On Blu-ray Review — They’re Back! ‘Poltergeist II: The Other Side’

Horror On Blu-ray Review — They’re Back! ‘Poltergeist II: The Other Side’

Alright, listen, creepy old men done correctly are always scary, period! There is nothing more terrifying than a decrepit old man sinisterly smiling at the camera and or protagonist. It’s a bone chilling fear that plays on the comfort we feel with the elderly. Our grandparents are the most loving people in the world, they […]
