The 1990s Teen Horror Cycle by Alexandra West Book Review – By Baron Craze

  I honestly don’t remember much about the 90s, it was more of blur for me, in 1991 I just graduated high school and I began the next stage in life, one I later changed drastically. It was time to put away childish things, and start college, and so on, therefore this gave some insight…


Scared Stiff by Ramsey Campbell – By Baron Craze

Remaking Horror by James Francis, Jr. Book Review – By Baron Craze

Before I embark on this review, it needs to be stated a misconception regarding my views on remakes, I don’t dislike, I just don’t agree doing them on stellar movies or well-known ones in the industry.

In 1979, Dean Koontz wrote a novel entitled, Whispers, launched on a successful and award-winning career path, earning positions onto the bestseller list, going from an unknown suspenseful writer to this acclaim which shifted his world dramatically.  Trying to pigeonhole the author proved a tad difficult, his work still contains solid footing in suspense and…
