Storyline

Newest cult favorite from famed director Herschell Gordon Lewis, known for BloodFeast 1 & 2, 2000 Maniacs, Wizard of Gore, and The Gore Gore Girls. Cameo by Troma honcho Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger, Poultrygeist). Includes behind the scenes featurette. Jill Burton is a reporter who's dead set on getting the scoop behind The Uh-Oh! Show, the gory TV sensation that's sweeping the nation. Get the answer right and win piles of dough, get it wrong and Uh-Oh! it s off with your arms, legs, or more! Fred Finagler, the shows mastermind, feeds the fans depraved cravings by launching an even bloodier reality spectacular filled with Big Bad Wolf attacks, Hansel & Gretel-style torture massacres, and mauling mutilations from the Three Bears and a gore-crazed Goldilocks. It's just the type of prime-time violence Fred needs to keep the ratings high! Written by Editorial Review

Uh-oh!
23 December 2013 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

It came as no surprise to see Troma head honcho Lloyd Kaufmann popping up in Herschell Gordon Lewis's comedy splatter pic The Uh-oh Show, both film-makers sharing a similar sense of humour and displaying a lack of boundaries when it comes to taste. Unfortunately, they also share the same uncanny ability to churn out complete and utter drivel, and The Uh-oh Show is no exception.

The film centres around a cable TV quiz show in which contestants literally risk life and limb to win—answer a question correctly and they are rewarded with a fabulous prize, get the question wrong and a spin of a wheel decides which body part is to be unceremoniously removed by the show's resident maniac Radial Saw Rex (Broward 'Eclipse' Holsey). When her boyfriend becomes a contestant and promptly disappears, TV reporter Jill Burton (Nevada Caldwell) investigates the show, and discovers that no-one is a winner.

Although The Uh-oh Show seems to be intended as a wry swipe at network TV's use of violence to boost ratings (pot, kettle?), Lewis's execution is way too ham-fisted to work as effective satire; the script is dreadful, the direction uninspired, the zany humour and cartoonish violence can be considered puerile at best (characters continue to talk even after being dismembered!), and, although Caldwell puts in a reasonable performance (for a Lewis film, at least), the majority of the cast are as lousy as I expected.

3.5 out of 10, generously rounded up to 4 for the excess of gore, which is always messy and occasionally even looks half decent.
