Campground SLASHER 1985 (2020) – By Baron Craze

I know it’s a little unheard of to review a film that is under 3-minutes, but each film in horror deserves a review, and this production is from southern New Jersey and I figure why not cover a short film. Now obviously this isn’t going to be a standard 600-words, but rather still a review….

In 1985, city of Villa Epecuén, located in Argentine, was erased from the land, after a severe storm caused a nearby dam to break wide open, and other barriers were overwhelmed, with no way of stopping the flood that caused the population of 5,000 people hurried in abandoning the city as it submerged beneath rising…


Psycho Cop Returns (1993) – By Baron Craze

Sometimes it’s fun to revisit a horror movie from the early 1990s, which seems a tad leftover from the 80s, especially one so over-the-top, that earned a polished look from Vinegar Syndrome on Blu-Ray with a special cover-artwork and many bells and whistles to boot.

Final Exam (1981) – By Baron Craze

Very quickly the horror genre switched the gears into producing massacres on screen at the rate of an assembly line all thanks to incredible success of  John Carpenter’s Halloween (1978), tons of copycats (a few rip-offs) flooded the market, and later with explosion of VHS and furthermore DVD more slasher formulaic became a worn-out standardization…


My Bloody Valentine (1981) – By Baron Craze

At a time when the slasher genre began its carnage of blood spraying fun in the early eighties, one film garnished the ranks as the most over-looked and underrated, with it taking a holiday largely avoided, and prime territory for director George Mihalka (The Psychic [1991]) to stake his first directorial horror claim.
