Horror Icon: Donald Pleasence – By Baron Craze

It’s time once more to revisit another Horror Icon that passed on, often I’m asked why celebrating their date of death, because face it’s when the accolades and legacy quite well remember, no one can honestly make the claim or when someone is born, for what they have yet to accomplish. Yes congratulations, we were…

Anatomy of the Slasher Film by Sotiris Petridis Book Review – By Baron Craze

I enjoy taking the time to immerse myself in a book whether it is fiction or non-fiction anything on the topic in the horror genre, and in either case it’s sometimes an interesting exploration especially if the author’s words can transform to creative thoughts in one’s mind. Now a wonderful aspect often allows me to…


Caesar & Otto’s Paranormal Halloween (2015) – By Baron Craze

Director Dave Campfield, returns with his self-created long running franchise Caesar and Otto journeys and this time he hit his mark with a better character control and smoother screenplay, he still wore as many hats as possible for the movie, quite common in independent filmmaking.

Discounting his work of Halloween and part two, remakes, he definitely does not…

This past Halloween, Acid Witch, a Detroit group, released their third full-length album, a 7-year drought since 2010 called ‘Stoned’, still a devilish return with ‘Evil Sound Screamers’ featuring Slasher Dave and company. They keep the doom metal qualities, adding more death vocals and presenting a much more Horror / Halloween influences think of playing…


The Houses October Built 2 (2017) – By Baron Craze

I actually found director and writer Bobby Roe’s The Houses October Built 2 overall impressive of how it improves from the previous film from 2014, especially showing (spoiler) that the cast didn’t die in the clutches of the Blue Skeleton’s extreme haunt experience. Although the storyline continues in the same path of exploring the extreme…


The Barn (2016) – By Baron Craze

Sometimes lightning strikes when the passion for nostalgic look back on 80s horror, even when a minuscule budget finances the entire movie, assisted by an Indiegogo campaign, and that fans, is what director Justin Seaman accomplished with his film The Barn. Justin, like many indie filmmakers wore many hats for his incredible authentic movie, such…
