Good Tidings (2016) – Baron Craze

Christmas themed films always popular on the Hallmark Channel and family networks, filtering onto the airwaves lately right before Halloween, however, the horror genre, began churning out more sinister Santa killing machines of late, though some aren’t at the level of Black Christmas (1974) or the classic Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984), but an improvement…

Director Grant Harvey, known for his extensive resume of providing tight storylines on several television shows, and on his feature horror film Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning (2004) now returns with a stellar anthology flick entitled A Christmas Horror Story. This film had a limited theatrical run before storming onto the VOD and DVD markets,…


Black Christmas (1974) – By Baron Craze

In 1974, director Bob Clark, unleashed a hell-raising nightmarish crazed movie, which did not garnish much praise, but has since risen to the top of the Christmas horror films, generating a lasting cult classic, with frightening occurrences that left future filmmakers salivating for the opportunities to use the blueprints on their creations. John Carpenter’s Halloween…


Krampus (2015) – By Baron Craze

Lately the Christmas horror movies have exploded on the scene, first A Christmas Horror Story and then a slew of Krampus flicks, but then a bigger production and studio backed movie swept in and took over the customary gleeful gift giving holiday cheer with a sinister twisted storyline harkened back to the Alpine folklore with…


Holidays (2016) – By Baron Craze

Anthology horror films continue the strong resurgence and find themselves in demand of many horror fans, looking for the upcoming stars and those bucking the Hollywood elite system of watered down horrific tales. “Holidays” designs an engaging topic by covering the entire year of what is normally subjected to dreadful pigeonholing with no expansion to…


A Cadaver Christmas (2011) – By Baron Craze

A delightful blend of disgust and holiday cheerful gore, with the dead getting the gift of recreation, what a guy that Santa Claus is to help out the less fortune and assisting in reuniting families. A Cadaver Christmas is a sloppy, sticky and icky tale from three writers, Joe Zerull who directs and assisted by…


Caesar and Otto’s Deadly Xmas (2012) – By Baron Craze

Director Dave Campfield brings forth an odd creation entitled Caesar and Otto’s Deadly Xmas, noted as the fifth installment of the Caesar and Otto’s tales of mishaps and insanity, this film is obviously a Christmas Horror, a subgenre in horror, and likely one of the tougher ones to compete therein without becoming too campy or…


All Through The House (2015) – By Baron Craze

Todd Nunes, who directed and wrote this independent horror movie, used his short film “Here Comes Santa”, to create another holiday bloodbath filled with good cheer and laughter along with beautiful babes, such as Sheila (Jessica Cameron) and a high body count all for a bloody good time. The story involves a deranged dressed individual in…


Surviving the Holidays: Slashing Away Part 2 (Dec 16 to 31) – By Baron Craze

December 16th Dismembering Christmas (2015) there’s just something about this title I find amusing, perhaps it reminds of I Dismember Mama (1972), but anyway it follows the slasher playbook, with seven high schoolers shacking up in a winter lake house while someone seeks to see their insides at any cost. I suppose this madman seeks…


Ugly Sweater Party (2018) – By Baron Craze

First, before starting this review, I know the director, met him personally in 2008 at the Terror Film Festival, in Philadelphia, PA where I saw his short film Absent (2008), which made the Hollywood film Teaching Mrs. Tingle look like a g-rated production, his work contained scenes of brutalization and mass suicide of evil portions;…
