Beware the Lake (2017) – By Baron Craze

Often in the world of independent horror flicks, one locates both dread and gems, and then sometimes commonplace, sadly director Elgin Cahill’s Beware the Lake falls in the latter category, with typical bullies belittling a stranger, only to become nothing more than a growing bloodless body count. Elgin’s movie, comes from Chest Tree Films production…


Carnival of Blood (1970) – By Baron Craze

Wow, where does one begin with this movie, first by stating this is a bad, bad movie, it appears at times as a muddled mess, and hints to H.G. Lewis’ Blood Feast as clear indication of reference materials, nevertheless it comes from Leonard Kirtman, who served as both director and writer. Kirtman only helmed one…


Epidemic (2018) – By Baron Craze

First, this not exactly a zombie flick, it falls slightly into the “body horror” subgenre, while the overall story focuses on a mysterious flesh consuming infection it drives a different route, likely due to budget constraints. Stephen Michael Giglio delivers his directorial debut in the horror genre, and 8-years after his first movie Go West…


E-Demon (2018) – By Baron Craze

E-Demon presents itself as a found footage, but in a rather original manner, no unwarranted reason for the camera to run, rather creatively done to get the attention of Facebook users, YouTube fans, and attracting the causal surfer of the net. It all poses itself as a true story, from Dark Cuts Entertainment responsible for bringing…


Pledge (2018) – By Baron Craze

Pledge flew under the radar of many horror fans, but still enjoyed a successful festival run earning awards for Best Director and Best Editing at the Screamfest Horror Film Festival, although a scant 77-minutes, delivers a straight-forward and compelling story. Directed by Daniel Robbins, who also helmed the Uncaged (2016) while reteaming with screenwriter Zack Weiner…


DOA REVIEW: Scorpius Gigantus (2006) – By Baron Craze

CASE NUMBER: #111 One, important thing, I discovered among the grounds of the dead, are the films that no one cares enough to make properly on paper, its on a rare occasion that screenwriters find themselves unconcerned with a script, without any care for the plot or character development, meaningful dialogue, when one achieves a…


The Amityville Murders (2018) – By Baron Craze

  Daniel Farrands, making his narrative feature directorial debut here, story out of phantom whispers, mob connections, and other pieces, however not it’s not Daniel’s first time covering this theme, he did direct two documentaries both in 2000, entitled “Amityville: The Haunting” and Amityville: Horror or Hoax and served as one of many producers on…


St. Agatha (2018) – By Baron Craze

  Likely, all serious horror fans know the name Darren Lynn Bousman, or at least it sounds familiar, after all he directed the first 3-sequels of the Saw franchise, before embarking on his own path in filmmaking, namely in the horror genre, and when hints of a nun-themed flick started making the rounds the excitement…


Terrifier (2016) – By Baron Craze

Over the last ten years, writer and director Damien Leone seems to build his own horror icon in the form of Art the Clown, originally played by Mike Giannelli. Art made his debut in a 2008 short called The 9th Circle, silently creeping out a young woman as she sat alone in a train station,…


The Demonologist (2019) – By Baron Craze

Once upon a time, there was a rule, a guideline in the horror genre, stay in your lane, meaning no crossover or mixing genres for example Freddy vs. Jason, combined slasher with action, but the rule extended to the subgenres, now though they all seem clearly and rightfully tossed aside, as is the case with…
