The Wasp Woman (1959) – By Baron Craze

Without Roger Corman, it’s possible that the b-movie cinematic world would be the equivalent of a stationary bike, simply stuck in a rut, however those well aware of his contributions know of his vast gothic works, Pit and the Pendulum [1961], the numerous hats he wore on any given project, and showed the blueprint of…

Lifeforce (1985) – By Baron Craze

Before one can begin to discuss Lifeforce, there’s clear understanding this is a horror and sci-fi b-movie, that starts fine and quickly builds in a strange direction and likely has one asking themselves and anyone in the room what on earth is going on quite quickly. Well ignore all the questions save them for a…

Queen of Blood (1966) – By Baron Craze

First, Queen of Blood is a silly film, but it still contains a fondness, with many sci-fi and some of the horror fans, a movie headed by an experimental film director, Curtis Harrington, for an extremely low budget production, backed by producers Roger Corman and Samuel Z. Arkoff and in lies the rub of this weird…


The Crawling Eye (1958) – By Baron Craze

I figure this film needed to be discussed simply as I mentioned it in The Fog (1980) review, and realized that there’s a high percentage chance that many readers may never have heard of it, hence the time to revisit, as one might recall, John Carpenter stated it was one of a few concepts for…


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…


Alien: Covenant (2017) – By Baron Craze

  Fans and critics penned much about Alien: Covenant and the franchise itself, with the consensus that the latest movie falls into the favor of the fans, and while not making everyone happy, and that’s true for any fan of a series, can’t please everyone. Ridley Scott gave a solid sequel to Prometheus (2012), and…


Color Out of Space (2019) – By Baron Craze

Before one dives into the film there’s a few things to unpack first, among them when it comes to adapting authors their favorites among the horror genre, King, Poe, Barker and of course H.P. Lovecraft, and then there’s the understanding of cosmic horror subgenre. This last part becomes a slight confusion, for some, this is…


The Final Countdown (1980) – By Baron Craze

Time travel films always present an interesting ripple in the horror sci-fi crossover, with fascination on the topic of recent Happy Death Day (2017), fans honestly forget all the rest, among them Army of Darkness (1992), The Terminator (1984), the comical My Science Project (1985) and of course Back to the Future (1985), which filters…
