An in-depth study of the legal system, with a jolt of weirdness.
If you're familiar with DR. GORE and the utterly notorious FACES OF DEATH series, then you will find Pat Patterson's long lost THE ELECTRIC CHAIR shocking in its strangely demented execution (meaning a serious court film gone horribly wrong!). It is by no means a blood-and-guts horror film, as this focuses on a sequential process of investigation and trial over a simple little murder that could have been easily averted. The real drama behind the killings ends here, and for what you'd expect in a forgotten little drive-in flick, the weirdness makes up most of its fun. It never tries hard at being mighty provocative. You know a movie that can have plain white sets and poor sound quality. Take this one differently if you can, because a lot of bad production values are everywhere! Not even the acting nor the awkward camera angles would be a magnificent grace in showing respect and loyalty to the judge. Perhaps the greatest laugh of all in this film concerns an investigation of a decomposed body following an autopsy. Out pops...a silly looking skull-face model with huge eyeballs! And just when nothing should go wrong in the courtroom, something else does! This is one really messed up movie that may have you heading for the hospital emergency unit in a jolting flash! Lost movie collectors should give this one a shock treatment.
