In cinema, every category contains sub-genres, horror likely has the most, some more adventurous than others, but the exploitation topic houses the rape and revenge tales and even the torture porn.

Working from an original body of work, director and co-writer Griff Furst adapted his screenplay from the book “Cold Moon Over Babylon” (1980) by Michael McDowell {RIP 1999}, who co-wrote the script Beetlejuice (1988); delivers an enjoyable with bleak moments story, likely to fly under the radar for many horror fans, as it presents more…

Monster Party (2018) – By Baron Craze

While the box art cover doesn’t appear very horror-like for Monster Party and makes early comparisons to Don’t Breathe, it shall in generating a seriously intense bloodbath to even ridiculous proportions, with many graphic scenes. Therefore, one could label it a sleeper independent movie, as it first lulls the viewer in one direction with a thriller…

The Toybox (2018) – By Baron Craze

Possession stories always find a special place with the horror fans, often enough it’s a house, cabin, or another type building, and then again, the vehicle in the horror flick, is just that, such as The Car (1977), The Hearse (1980), and Christine (1983). Sometimes the tales do get cheesy for example Haunted Trailer (2014)…


Blood Child (2017) – By Baron Craze

Blood Child is a creepy horror film about loss, pain, and the supernatural real Southeast Asian rituals that involve the raising of ghost children, sounds fine, if one stops right there, however it doesn’t rather it adds the now tiresome phrasing ‘based on a true story’ oh please, whether it is or not, the words used…
