Storyline

Shock-O-Rama features three low-budget horror tales revolving around a B-movie actress. In 'Zombie This' erotic scream queen Rebecca Raven is through with the typecast exploitation acting roles she gets and takes a vacation getaway to a remote house where she accidentally unearths a zombie whom targets her. Back at the studios, her sleazy producer looks over two other horror films Rebecca was to appear in. In 'Mecharachnia' a hapless, deadbeat auto yard owner and his girlfriend are besieged in their workplace by little green alien outlaws who have landed on Earth and plot to take over. In 'Lonely are the Brain', a deranged female doctor submits dream experimentation in a halfway house full of beautiful women as part to a disembodied living brain, until on of the test subjects suspects the true nature of the experiments and plots to stop the mad doctor.

A highly entertaining ride with the b-movie roller-coaster.
4 October 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Ever since I won a copy of the haunted house shocker "Drainiac" about two months ago, I consider myself a fan of the New Hampshire based cult filmmaker Brett Piper.

And since "Drainiac" was not enough to quench my hunger for spectacular low budget horror, I didn't hesitate to send a couple of bucks to Shock-O-Rama/EI Cinema to order Brett Piper's flicks "Shock-O-Rama" and "Bacterium" on DVD. And since I was especially excited to see "Shock-O-Rama"—which Brett Piper himself had already introduced to me as his best movie so far—I put the disc in the player right after I got it. And what shall I say, after I've been watching "Shock-O-Rama" for hardly more than a few minutes, it already appeared to me that this flick would indeed turn out to be a highly entertaining horror comedy with real cult potential.

Just like classics such as "Creepshow" or "Tales From The Crypt", "Shock-O-Rama" is also divided into three individual episodes, that are tied together by a funny, tongue-in-the-cheek background story. In the first episode called "Mecharachnia", a group of tiny little aliens shipwrecks on a run-down junkyard and terrorizes the macho yard keeper Jedd Callahan and his bitchy ex-wife Linda. Things get even worse when the uninvited guests from outer space build a giant killer robot out of scratch metal overnight and henceforth try to blow the quarrelsome ex-couple to pieces.

In "Zombie This" we'll then get to see scream queen Rebecca Raven (played by Misty Mundae) being attacked by a bloodthirsty zombie, who has just risen from the grave and now wants to feast on the sexy actress' soft and tasty flesh. At first it doesn't look too good for Mrs. Raven, but then she finds a chainsaw in an old tool shed and all of a sudden the situation takes an unexpected turn and now it's the zombie who's gotta run for his rotten life.

And last but not least there's also an episode called "Lonely Are The Brain". This freaky and visually very appealing sequence is about a giant brain from the future, which controls the naughty dreams and sexual desires of a whole bunch of scantly clad hotties, who henceforth find themselves right in the middle of the weirdest fantasy scenarios. But be aware, what might look like the kinky product of a naughty girl's imagination at first, may turn into a bloody nightmare just a couple of moments later...

As a devoted b-movie maniac you will most likely have realized by now, that there's hardly a horror- and science fiction cliché which Brett Piper does not use in "Shock-O-Rama". From start to finish, this flick is nothing but a wonderful homage to the long forgotten monster movies of the past, especially the drive-in classics of the 50s and 60s.

To keep "Shock-O-Rama" in proper old-school style, Brett Piper has almost completely abstained from using CGI and instead unleashed a true feast of cool, handmade effects. Throughout the course of this movie you'll find tons of awesome stop motion monsters, latex masks, horror makeups and miniatures, as well as beautiful sets and locations occupied by hilariously over-the-top characters, who deliver one funny line after the other... and, as the icing on the cake, "Shock-O-Rama" does also offer lots and lots of bloodshed and nudity for our greedy 'lil eyeballs to behold.

To keep a long story short: "Shock-O-Rama" is a wild, colorful and highly entertaining ride with the b-movie roller-coaster, which every scifi-, horror- and cult film fan will surely enjoy a lot. Fans of trash icons such as Roger Corman, Frank Hennenlotter and Lloyd Kaufman will definitely get their money's worth with this DVD, especially since not only the film itself, but also the package with lots of cool specials such as interviews, behind-the-scenes footage and an informative audio commentary do hardly leave anything to be desired.
