Shocker [Collector's Edition]
On October 2nd, at 6:45 a.m., mass murderer Horace Pinker was put to death... Now he's really mad.
Master of horror Wes Craven (Scream, The Last House on the Left, A Nightmare on Elm Street) directs this exciting visual treat which introduces a diabolical mass murderer who harnesses electricity for unimaginable killing powers.
About to be electrocuted for a catalog of heinous crimes, the unrepentant Horace Pinker transforms into a terrifying energy source. Only young athlete Jonathan Parker, with an uncanny connection to Pinker through bizarre dreams, can fight the powerful demon. The two dive in and out of television programs, chasing each other from channel to channel through stunning scenes of disaster, game shows and old reruns.
A blend of dazzling special effects and an electrifying soundtrack, Shocker stars actor/director Peter Berg (actor Smokin' Aces, director Lone Survivor), Michael Murphy (X-Men: The Last Stand, Batman Returns), Ted Raimi (Evil Dead II, Candyman) and Mitch Pileggi (The X-Files, Sons of Anarchy) as Horace Pinker.
Why We Love It
“Wes Craven's 'Shocker' Electrifies its Way Onto Blu-Ray…..Craven’s dark sense of humor is all over this movie, maybe more so than any of the other films in his cannon…Like with most Shout! Scream Factory releases, the Blu-Ray is filled with a ton of special features” — Movie Pilot
“This release from Scream Factory is absolutely a fitting tribute to one of Craven’s most underappreciated films. As a longtime fan, it’s nice to have companies like them around to carry the mantle for classic and modern cult genre films that often get overlooked by the studios that were originally behind them. And in the words Horace Pinker, one could even say that this Shocker Blu is “Finger Licking Good!” — Heather Wixson, DAILY DEAD
“The definitive edition of Craven’s popular slasher, Scream Factory’s Shocker – Collector’s Edition is a must-own for fans of the film, and comes highly recommended!” — HorrorView
