Death Ship (1980) – By Baron Craze

I figure it’s only appropriate that I cover this film because there’s a vast exploitation genre with many subgenres under it, from Nunsploitation, Naziploitation, to Ozploitation, which I covered on the site, by reviewing various movies such as The Demons [1973], Reichsfuhrer-SS [2015], and Turkey Shoot [1982]. In addition, as some can tell I enjoy…

Lifeforce (1985) – By Baron Craze

Before one can begin to discuss Lifeforce, there’s clear understanding this is a horror and sci-fi b-movie, that starts fine and quickly builds in a strange direction and likely has one asking themselves and anyone in the room what on earth is going on quite quickly. Well ignore all the questions save them for a…


Final Exam (1981) – By Baron Craze

Very quickly the horror genre switched the gears into producing massacres on screen at the rate of an assembly line all thanks to incredible success of  John Carpenter’s Halloween (1978), tons of copycats (a few rip-offs) flooded the market, and later with explosion of VHS and furthermore DVD more slasher formulaic became a worn-out standardization…


Graduation Day (1981) – By Baron Craze

Everyone in the horror genre, knows of the impact and the glorious years where “slasher movies” reigned as king, an easy money-maker at the box office, fueling wars with the MPAA and while 2020 will mark the 40th-annivrersdary for many of the classics such as Friday the 13th, Prom Night, Terror Train and countless others,…


Elvira: Mistress of the Dark (1988) – By Baron Craze

I suppose most fans have a few horror comedies they enjoy from Shaun of the Dead (2004) or Tucker and Dale vs Evil (2010) and for me it’s Young Frankenstein (1974) or Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948), then again any Abbott and Costello movie. Then there’s campy and cheesy entries namely Cassandra Peterson’s alter…


Cannibal Holocaust (1980) – By Baron Craze

If I were to ask the true hardcore horror fans to name the top five most exploitative movies of the 80s, the answer likely contains Cannibal Holocaust and Cannibal Ferox. Now for those unaware of this highly offensive movie, then my review shall provide you with serious insight to the subgenre of cannibal movies. Back…


The Final Countdown (1980) – By Baron Craze

Time travel films always present an interesting ripple in the horror sci-fi crossover, with fascination on the topic of recent Happy Death Day (2017), fans honestly forget all the rest, among them Army of Darkness (1992), The Terminator (1984), the comical My Science Project (1985) and of course Back to the Future (1985), which filters…


DeepStar Six (1989) – By Baron Craze

This might be the strangest concept to understand, DeepStar Six plot is very similar to Leviathan and it is also one of six creature feature underwater films to find itself dated 1989 through 1990, which doesn’t count any films involving sharks or those type of predators. In Hollywood and indie studios, trends start, and producers…


Ghostbusters (1984) – By Baron Craze

I afforded the opportunity to watch director Ivan Reitman’s classic 1984 Ghostbusters flick, it like Gremlins released on the same day, was something I missed at the theaters when I was a child; if one wonders why, wait for my autobiography. Needless to say, I have seen it countless times on the small screen, enjoying…
