Lasso (2018) – By Baron Craze

Once again Epic Pictures and Dread Central Presents teamed up to deliver director Evan Cecil’s film Lasso (aided by production firm Dragonfly films) to the masses, clearly from the artwork and the title a horror western themed flick, but the main question, does it survive a round up and a shootout. Well screenwriter Roberto Marinas…


All the Creatures Were Stirring (2018) – By Baron Craze

David Ian and Rebekah McKendry wrote and directed this latest anthology feature of a Christmas horror film while making sure to drown it in the festive color lights, and wintry mix, rather making sure to let the stories and actors themselves star in the production, and thereby allowing them to advance it on their own….


Animalistic (2015) – By Baron Craze

In cinema, every category contains sub-genres, horror likely has the most, some more adventurous than others, but the exploitation topic houses the rape and revenge tales and even the torture porn. Rarely does a movie ask for them to care about a rapist, and far less about the victim, overall making it  from the viewpoint…


It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966) – by Creepy Crazy Cathy

I remember as a child every Halloween it was time to watch The Great Pumpkin. I used to love that short movie. So, when I had my 2 kids I wanted them to have the same excitement I had.   It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966) is another Peanuts story by the beloved writer…


Cold Moon (2016) – By Baron Craze

Working from an original body of work, director and co-writer Griff Furst adapted his screenplay from the book “Cold Moon Over Babylon” (1980) by Michael McDowell {RIP 1999}, who co-wrote the script Beetlejuice (1988); delivers an enjoyable with bleak moments story, likely to fly under the radar for many horror fans, as it presents more…

    This review, originally posted in March of 2016 on the now defunct Rogue Cinema site earning a view count of 1,681, however at the time DOA Reviews didn’t exist then, but revisiting this review and the movie, clearly it’s one for the graveyard of DOA. CASE NUMBER #0023: Shark Lake was originally listed…


Monster Party (2018) – By Baron Craze

While the box art cover doesn’t appear very horror-like for Monster Party and makes early comparisons to Don’t Breathe, it shall in generating a seriously intense bloodbath to even ridiculous proportions, with many graphic scenes. Therefore, one could label it a sleeper independent movie, as it first lulls the viewer in one direction with a thriller…


Mara (2018) – By Baron Craze

There are two schools of thought when making a directorial debut, either go with gusto, or play it relatively safe, of course it deals with the budgets, crew and content, hence no clear cut rules layout before the aspiring filmmaker. Herein is Clive Tonge, making usage of the nightmares in sleep as the main subject…


An Hour to Kill (2018) – By Baron Craze

Lately, in the horror genre, comes the interesting trend of increasing distribution of anthology themed films, and often not every story gets a grand slam, but Aaron K. Carter served as producer, director and writer, aided by Ronnie Jimenez as co-writer to create a series of stories along with a wrap-around story involving two hitmen….


Butterfly Kisses (2018) – By Baron Craze

First, this film contains no connection to director Rafael Kapelinski’s dramatic film of the same name released in 2017, rather as many others state, and I agree, is a documentary inside a documentary inside a documentary found footage horror film, which makes it hard to review without exposing many spoilers, therefore be forewarned it might…
