Zombie Brigade (1986) – By Baron Craze

Zombie Brigade (also known as Zombie Commando) is considered by some as one of Australian’s exploitation market films, however to horror fans, it’s just another example of zombies staggering mindlessly while confusing everyone on the screen and in the audience too. Directors and writers Carmelo Musca and Barrie Pattison, present a fair story of an…

The Intervision Picture Corporation, a sub-division of Severin Films, restored the gritty pieces of the movie Murderlust, that were originally on a highly cut obscure VHS, with grimy filthy quality transfer all footage restored to a DVD, horror fans seeking this production may thoroughly enjoy it.

Re-Animator (1985) – By Baron Craze

I love when a horror movie pushes the so-called acceptable limits, and rather rips up the envelope of decent standards, horror is a harsh word, it doesn’t do well with niceties, rather horror fans and viewers shall encourage and applaud those who are faithful by delivering the goods, just like with The Evil Dead [1981]…


To All A Goodnight (1980) – By Baron Craze

If I were to quiz horror fans, similar to the style in Scream [1996] and stated name the movie that someone killing in revenge of a child dying and it included a doomsayer named Ralph, the answer is easy Friday the 13th – except once again you are wrong, it’s this movie. According the trivia…


Elves [1989] – By Baron Craze

Christmas horror movies will always be that unique niche market, a true subgenre of late, in the 70s and into the 80s it was a common one-off film for the season, but with the incorporation of nutty storylines, Krampus, St Nick, and Elves it all allowed for hell to freeze over unleashing blood good cheer,…


Prom Night (1980) – By Baron Craze

It’s likely that every horror fan knows when the slasher subgenre became well-known, those glorious gory early, after Sean Cummingham’s Friday the 13th was released the onslaught started, the killers emerged from the woods, mine-shafts, alleyways and invading the high schools. While one should know that Sean’s flick wasn’t the first slasher of 1980, it…


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…
