I love the movie Shocker and feel it deserved a second chance. Though the serial killer character of Horace Pinker is not Freddy Krueger, he still is just as terrifying and the films is just as good as Craven's A Nightmare of Elm Steet(and definitely better than its sequels). Mitch Pileggi of X-Files gives a wonderfully scary performance as Tv repairman/serial killer Horace Pinker. I think it definitely deseres a look by Craven and just plain Horror fans alike. So in response to Mr. Horton's review above, I would love to get my hands on some Horace Pinker action figures. What a great idea!

Some people are disappointed with this, but I can't understand why. Alright, so Wes Craven had set out to create a new Freddy, but so what? The film is an excellent joining-together of interesting characters, imaginative special effects and a crackingly good script.
A serial killer is stalking the city. After an accident on the rugby pitch a teenaged boy has a dream in which he finds that the maniac is none other than local TV repairman Horace Pinker. When Pinker is put to death on the electric chair, he is able to return to life through anything with electrical systems including the TV and the human body.
Gripping, well-paced thriller. Horace Pinker himself is such a different character from Skinner in the X-Files that it's hard to believe it's the same actor. Pinker is certainly one of the better of the thousands of film psychopaths and this film is certainly a cut above most of the uninspiring Freddy sequels. A wonderfully dark and sombre soundtrack is the cherry on the proverbial bakewell.

I know that lots of folks love Wes Craven's movies; I just don't happen to be one of those folks. The only reason I rented this is that someone compared a piece of my artwork to the effects in this movie, and I thought what the heck? The movie is outrageous, and even a bit funny, but it just didn't do it for me.

Let me add, I watch movies to be entertained, not to criticize. I was only about 2 stars entertained by this.

I saw this movie many years ago and I thought it was very good, yet creepy at times. It was kind of scary now, but back then really terrified me. It was very interesting and different. Great movie then, and still a great movie now.

Movie styled after MTV music videos at the height of MTV's power. The movie is inventive and well worth watching. The music works well with the movie, but not as well without it. See if you can find the disc with the songs. 80's heavy metal. It's out of print, so you may have to hunt, but the songs stand on their own feet.

The story line was great and it kept me jumping. The TV clips it showed put together w/ the sound track was well put together. I definately could watch this movie again.

This is one of Wes Craven's best movies in my opinion. The plot is very creepy,and the killer is a ruthless psychopath named Horace Pinker,who is completly unqiue and original,unlike alot of the other movie killers,that were popular at the time. Sure the film has it's cheesey moments,with some of it's over-the-top acting,and campy one-liners,but in no way,does it make this a bad movie. "Shocker" is an underrated Horror flick,that didin't get the love that it deserved. If you love scary movies,then check this one out.
