Santa’s Slay (2005) – By Baron Craze

During the Happy Holiday season there’s a very fun, and yet twisted subgenre of films known as Christmas Horror, sometimes they’re straightforward slashing merrily and then a few incorporate some laughter, but always either cheer or groans for the presents delivered this time of the year. Clearly every horror fan as their favorites my two…


Hole (2010) – By Baron Craze

The discovery for many reviewers and horror fans learning of the rising talents of Joaquin Montalvan came from his low-budget horror film Legend of the Hillbilly Butcher [2014], whose entire filmmaking style bucks the system of formats and structure and eclipses the boundaries of sick twisted creations of horror. Four years prior to the ‘Butcher”…


Beautiful Prison (2016) – By Baron Craze

Horror films always incorporate other genres, and director Joel Vallie who co-wrote with Eric Machiela, does just that with his dramatic and romantic movie Beautiful Prison, distributed through Midnight Releasing. His movie, created and filmed in Mexico, contains subtitles for the translating of Spanish speaking moments, but overall, it is in the English language, some…


Kirksdale (2007) [Short Film] – By Baron Craze

Stumbling across this movie again, I looked up previous reviews and notice one thing – so many dead links, and while it is common, it’s tad alarming, therefore why not take the time to venture back and show some care for this flick. I recalled seeing this movie at the Terror Film Festival (now defunct)…


Werewolves Within (2021) – By Baron Craze

Sometimes, critics become concerned if their view of a movie is too harsh or perhaps judging a movie incorrect, well that is how I felt about this flick, but then I asked friends to watch it and the consensus that that the film is tad underperforming. First, there’s a significant problem with the movie, namely…


Suburbanite (2013) – By Baron Craze

Sometimes when a director steps behind the camera for his first feature debut the jitters occur and effect the overall outcome of the movie, and the failure to achieve to success occurs, but not in the case of Andy Lohrenz who also served as writer of Suburbanite. He presents a thriller with currents of black…


Swamphead (2011) – By Baron Craze

First time directors and writers Dustin Drover and Justin Propp delivered their lowbrow comedy horror film to the masses of horror fans with style and true gusto by having it released on Wild Eye Releasing. Their movie combines multiple elements presented in a crib-sheet format, rather than the larger extent of bigger budget films and…


Collar (2014) – By Baron Craze

For the fans of exploitation genre faire, and seeking the dirty grimy grindhouse elements, one needs to reference writer and director Ryan Nicholson, bringing bloody hands and grotesque mindset of delivering horrific images not only to the screen but saturation of the scenes too. Collar earned a delicious release on Unearthed Films, in which a…


Family Demons (2009) – By Baron Craze

When cinema fans in general see the words “inspired by real events” a sense of shrugged shoulders and a rolling of the eyes, for the catch phrase is overused and a rouse to get the audience’s attention, however, delving in deeper one learns about Family Demons and director Ursula Dabrowrsky intentions. First, note this Dabrowsky…


The Power (2021) – By Baron Craze

This horror feature debut of writer and director Corinna Faith steps up to take on a haunting tale of ghostly activity and a slow burn style, by combining both heavy dramatic moments with a psychological design, though there’s an overwhelming amount of dialogue which might bog down the viewers’ entertainment. There’s a few themes taking…
