Quantcast Meet The Icons Of Fright Staff
"First rule of Fright club... you don't talk about Fright club."

Mike C.

The name & idea behind the Icons Of Fright website was concieved by Michael after watching an interview with Michael Berryman on The Hills Have Eyes: Special Edition DVD. "I just thought it would be cool to talk to him!" He recruited web designer, friend and mutual horror enthusist, Robg. to help put together the Icons Of Fright site, in which the duo would conduct respectful and informative interviews with various genre professionals.

Rob G.

Robg. had been practicing his web skills with both his band & portfolio websites, when Mike approached him with the idea of doing a horror related website. "It was a great idea, and something I knew I'd have a great time working on." The pair got together and mapped out exactly what features would be on Icons Of Fright. Both agreed on making the Icons interviews the main focus. "A lot of our questions just stem from late night diner conversations. We're just huge fans & love hearing the little stories behind the scenes of our favorite films."

Vin M. (aka the Techno Weenie)

Vin is a good friend of Rob G.'s and a one time co-worker of Mike C.'s. In fact, Vin introduced Rob & Mike and is indirectly responsible for this sites conception. Between the Techno Weenie incident with Robert Englund & Vin's humorous rants, we just knew he had to be a part of the site in some capacity. "We just thought... Let's give him his own page. And he can do and say whatever. At the very least, we know we'll be entertained by his posts."
