Editorial Reviews

From Sean S. Cunningham, producer-director of the original Friday The 13th, comes this electrifying tale of terror!


116 people are dead at the hands of Max Jenke (Brion James Blade Runner, Crimewave) and his trusty meat cleaver. Now, justice is about to be served as Jenke is sentenced to the electric chair. But from the first high voltage blast, it becomes clear that Max is no ordinary serial killer.


With a blood-chilling laugh from the depths of hell, Max enters our world, transformed into a supernatural force by the high-voltage blast of electricity. Max vows revenge on the cop who captured him. Well-aware of the maniacal killer’s passion to destroy, Detective Lucas McCarthy (Lance Henriksen Pumpkinhead, Aliens) can only begin to imagine the horror that awaits him and his family.

When we first stumbled upon The Horror Show we had assumed it was a unauthorized documentary of Santa's antics, which have horrified many over the years. However we were pleasantly surprised to learn it was a nice 80's horror film starring one of our all time favorites...Lance Henrikson. Ever since he captivated us in Pumpkinhead we have welcomed his appearance in any film, especially a B horror. The Horror Show embodies the Saturday evening movie rental experience as a kid. This would be the type of film you'd see on the shelf and just know it would deliver copious amounts of B delight. Once you'd finally lure Santa out of the vavum section, it would be off for some chini takeout and back to the house for a fun evening of B goodness. It's unfortunate we we didn't stumble upon this gem back in the 90's, but better later then never.

The movie opens up in complete chaos as Detective Lucas McCarthy (Henrikson)is hunting down deranged a serial killer known as Meat Clever Max. Obviously this is not a man one would want to mess with. He's even more lethal than the Lopper. As Detective Lucas come upon the crime scene he finds two decapitated police officers, one whose head is cooking up in a deep fryer. Once Det. McCarthy's partner gets chopped up, it's officially go time. As a tense battle ensues Meat Clever Max if arrested and scheduled for the death penalty. As Meat cooks in the electric chair he vows to reign down revenge upon Det. McCarthy as a ghost. The remainder of the film is Det. McCarthy's battle with the ghost of Meat Clever Max as his attempts to rescue his family from the spirits deadly revenge.

The Horror Show delivered exactly what we were expected from a nice 80's B horror. Once Lance Henrikson was headlining the event we were assured for a real treat.

I Enjoyed this film ever since I saw it in the early 90s. It does compare stylistically to SHOCKER, but IMO this film has more finesse.

Whilst Lance and Brion are the key players, the Psychic researcher is a key player, since he opens up the plot very quickly. I would love to see this film done in a more recent version with some fx touchups... but if not, it still stands the test very well, and it would do great on DVD ( wow, would I love that).

Overall, the surreal elements are great, and the "language" element is not a loss, since it would play well on tv, since its okay to slice and dice people, but swearing is a definite no-no.

Overall, I have wished that I could find more of Lance in this sort of psychic/surreal sort of film, but outside of Pumpkinhead, and OMEN 2, ( the exception now is MILLENIUM, since the extras make it clear that Frank Black has no psychic powers ... what a blow :-), anyways, Lance does a great job, same intensity as PUMPKINHEAD.

Another one from the great old days of HBO(HBO would NEVER play a movie like this today). As of yet, this film isn't available on DVD in the U.S. Tis a shame.
As others point out, this is very similar to Craven's Shocker, which was released shortly after this. Both films deal with serial killers executed in the electric chair, only to be resurrected as a kind of electrical specter hellbent on revenge.
Shocker got most of the attention, but what Shocker didn't have is two of the coolest character actors ever. Both Lance Henriksen and Brion James are major league badasses, and having them square off against each other is a treat.
No, the movie isn't perfect, but better than you'd think. In Freddy Krueger-like tradition, ghostly killer, James, sometimes appears to Henriksen as a kind of prankster. Sometimes it's kinda funny, but his character is so vicious and imposing that it seems out of character. Killer Max Jenke doesn't seem like he's really got much of a sense of humor and would be acting this way. Plus on hand is the reliable nerdy guy who's all informed as to what's going on and tries to convince the very skeptical Henriksen. Nothing much is a surprise, it's all riddled with cliches, but the power of the two leads keeps this one constantly watchable.
It should have a DVD release, dammit!

This looked good even from the trailers of the early '90s. I didn't know it was created by the makers of the original Friday the 13th. Lance Henricksen, I've.liked his work for a long time, even Man's Best Friend, yes, I love most animals, including dogs, but I didn't take that film to heart. This storyline has been done a few different times-First Power and Wes Craven's Shocker come to mind, for me.) This one was good too, but not quite an original take either. The special effects from the 80s through the 90s didn't rely as much on cgi, yet some how they were still just as convincing. Briton James as the invincible killer and has some unique tricks to taunt L H and his family. I do wonder though, is Shout! / Scream Factory gonna start releasing those obscure movies from years back that have all but been forgotten. So far, their transfer have been very good and the features have been very entertaining and informative. I also hope every distribution company continues the combo formats, but to stop with the picking and choosing, plus the special features just be on one or the other, but both, there's some food for thought.
