Entertainment Reviews:

Los Angeles Times - 10/27/1989
"...SHOCKER is crammed with dazzling bursts of macabre technique..."

Plot Synopsis:

A barbarous mass murderer is executed in the electric chair, but his spirit remains oddly earthbound. With his soul now inexplicably tethered to the electricity that took his life, the killer enters the homes of new victims via the unblinking eye of their television set.

Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: October 27, 1989.
  • Dr. Timothy Leary appears as a televangelist on a TV show called CASH FOR CHRIST.
  • Director Wes Craven has a cameo as a neighbor near the end of the film. In addition, his son Jonathan and daughter Jennifer make brief appearances as a jogger and a waitress, respectively.
  • The scene used in the theatrical trailer in which Horace Pinker says "No more Mr. Nice Guy" does not appear in the actual film.
  • The building where Horace Pinker is captured is at the corner of Maddalena St. and Wagner Ave., a reference to Marianne Maddalena, the film's producer, and Bruce Wagner, who cowrote A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 3.
  • Megadeth's "No More Mr. Nice Guy" is used prominently in the film.
