Johnny Gruesome (2018) – By Baron Craze

Sometimes dreams do come true, and Greg Lamberson can attest to that with the screenplay he wrote for Johnny Gruesome in 1984, however at the time unable to raise the funds he produced and directed Slime City (1988) instead in 1986, for $50,000 which went to become a cult classic. Then in 2006, he wrote…


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;…


Bonehill Road (2017) – By Baron Craze

Allow me a moment to fully disclose that I met Todd Sheets for the first time at the NJ Horror Con and Film Festival #4 in Atlantic City, NJ, I saw the artwork for his werewolf movie, and thought this looks interesting. After some discussion of his film, I promised him that I wouldn’t reveal…


Strange Nature (2018) – By Baron Craze

Strange Nature presents itself as a thriller first, then quite a bit of drama, before setting on horror in the second half of the film, as if the film mutates itself slowly unsure which direction to project itself towards, this likely is the result of first-time director James Ojala, who many know as a make-up…


The Basement (2018) – By Baron Craze

This movie which comes from directors Brian M. Conley and Nathan Ives (who also co-wrote the script with Sean Decker (L.A. Slasher [2015]) and Brian) appears to not only giveaway the principle location in the title but uses one of the most common titles possible hence leading to find itself lost among the movie wasteland…


Krampus Origins (2018) – By Baron Craze

The folklore figure Krampus, a half goat and demon, victimizing the children who represented evil in some manner throughout the year, now become something of a mainstay of recent times in the horror genre, and while his appearance often stays the same, the storylines switch faster than the weather on any given day. This all…


Scarecrows (2017) – By Baron Craze

If you enjoy cornfields, farmers, and cheesy slasher movies, then Scarecrows definite is ripe for the picking, it’s the from director and writer Stuart Stone and assisted by writer Adam Rodness, both whom did The Haunted House on Kirby Road (2016). The box art and trailer, give away a lot of the story’s plot, it…


Lasso (2018) – By Baron Craze

Once again Epic Pictures and Dread Central Presents teamed up to deliver director Evan Cecil’s film Lasso (aided by production firm Dragonfly films) to the masses, clearly from the artwork and the title a horror western themed flick, but the main question, does it survive a round up and a shootout. Well screenwriter Roberto Marinas…


All the Creatures Were Stirring (2018) – By Baron Craze

David Ian and Rebekah McKendry wrote and directed this latest anthology feature of a Christmas horror film while making sure to drown it in the festive color lights, and wintry mix, rather making sure to let the stories and actors themselves star in the production, and thereby allowing them to advance it on their own….


Animalistic (2015) – By Baron Craze

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. Rarely does a movie ask for them to care about a rapist, and far less about the victim, overall making it  from the viewpoint…
