Alien Encounter at Loch Ness (2014) – by Baron Craze

  Reality Entertainment brings another interesting chapter in the long discussion of whether the Loch Ness exists and then expounds upon that to the connection of UFOs, i.e. the Alien Encounter as in the title of the film. This film, from director and writer Philip Gardiner (Dead Walkers: Rise of the 4th Reich [2013]), leans…


The Fiancé (2016) – Baron Craze

  A few things to understand about this movie from director Mark Allen Michaels, it’s his second feature, though his first in the horror genre, and his first attempt as a screenwriter.

The Meg (2018) – By Creepy Crazy Cathy (AKA 3C)

    My nephew brought over one of his movies he got for Christmas and it just happened to be The Meg so I thought I would take some time to review it; another shark movie and in this case is a pre-historic enormous shark called a megalodon. It has a lot of similarities to…


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…

Tremors (1990) – By Baron Craze

Time to revisit another classic creature feature that I enjoyed so much, herein 2020, it’s now celebrating 30-years and spawned countless sequels, and even a spin-off, but not much in the merchandise market for the fans, hence species of Tremors (aka: Graboids) the fearful underground dwelling beast. 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…
