It Came From Beneath the Sea (1955) – By Baron Craze

  Robert Gordon directed a little more than the average creature feature from screenwriters George Worthing Yates and Hal Smith, because not only feature the talents of Ray Harryhausen’s special effects, but that it gives Faith Domergue’s role as an independent professor (more on this later). Yates truly understood the new dimension of horror with creatures…


Abbott and Costello Meet the Invisible Man (1951) – By Baron Craze

  Abbott and Costello are still considered one of the greatest comedic teams to ever grace the stage, street corner and silver screen with the finest timing, pratfalls and physical comedy equally measured with their verbal humor, a sometimes a tinge of blue collar jokes to skirt the censors of then, needless to say their…

  Paul Tarnopol presents a new film, and assisted in the writing was Goldeneye with the executive producer Jwoww, joined forces to create Jersey Shore Massacre.

Alien: Covenant (2017) – By Baron Craze

  Fans and critics penned much about Alien: Covenant and the franchise itself, with the consensus that the latest movie falls into the favor of the fans, and while not making everyone happy, and that’s true for any fan of a series, can’t please everyone. Ridley Scott gave a solid sequel to Prometheus (2012), and…


Play Hooky (2012) – By Baron Craze

Just mentioning the phrase “found footage” brings groans to many in the horror realm, especially the older generation of the genre however, the output seems for now a never-ending tidal wave of films, each with similar basis, well not the same, for first time director Frank S. Petrilli and his creation Play Hooky. Rather his…


Burial Ground: The Nights of Terror (1981) – By Baron Craze

There is no other way to describe Burial Ground, except by noting it is a sleazy, gross, and contains likely the first Opedius zombie complexion, in the entire genre and perhaps even in the cinematic world, and yet this movie has a passionate blood and gross core of fans that hunger for a return to…

Bite (2015) – By Baron Craze

Many horror fans recalled the tremendously wonderful remake of The Fly (1986) that director David Cronenberg created, mixing the creature-feature with human horrors and gross-out scene, well director Chad Archibald (who also did The Drownsman) performs a similar task with his film Bite. Chad’s movie involves multiple emotional horrors webbing outward, all of them coming…


The Green Inferno (2013) – By Baron Craze

I had a unique opportunity to see The Green Inferno, on Sunday, September 27, 2015, in New Jersey, at a time of the morning when many people were at various church services taking the symbolic body of Christ, while I and a few friends were in a theater alone, watching cannibals dine on the body…
