Alligator (1980) – By Baron Craze

  The horror film genre prides itself with taking folklore and urban legends and morphing them into scary movies or just solid tales to entertain audiences, well screenwriter John Sayles (Piranha [1978]) did that with Frank Ray Perilli’s (Laserblast [1978]) story.  Its concerns the story of how pet gators are flushed down a toilet and…


Indigenous (2014) – By Baron Craze

Alistair Orr’s Indigenous begins, as many modern creature-features do, with a group of young tourists venturing into the jungles of Darien Gap in a foreign country Panama, a real place and actually shot on location, which helps sell the pending terror. The film adds in the elements of b-movie fare, but sluggish at best, as humor fades…

It had the ability to sense vibrations on…


It Came From Beneath the Sea (1955) – By Baron Craze

  Robert Gordon directed a little more than the average creature feature from screenwriters George Worthing Yates and Hal Smith, because not only feature the talents of Ray Harryhausen’s special effects, but that it gives Faith Domergue’s role as an independent professor (more on this later). Yates truly understood the new dimension of horror with creatures…
