An old Gothic cathedral, built over a mass grave, develops strange powers which trap a number of people inside with ghosts from a 12th Century massacre seeking to resurrect an ancient demon from the bowels of the Earth.

Martin is a total loser, who nobody cares for. When he fails to get a position as guitar player in Lindsay's band and loses his job on the way, he makes a deal with a Voodoo priestess. She promises him the fulfillment of all his dreams if he swears obedience to her. He becomes a rock star and has many women - but to stay alive, he has to kill other people.Written by

There are 2 quotes from this movie that crack me up. The first is when Angel Martin goes out at night to order some pizzas at his old job. He approaches the window and some timid sincere nerd asks very endearingly and politely, "can i help you?" Angel Martin responds "I WANT TO ORDER A FU--IN' PIZZA!!" The other quote is when Angel is having the down side of his deal with the devil explained to him in the kitchen. "ARE YOU GONNA TELL ME WHAT THE FU-- IS GOING ON!!" I don't know why I think these are funny. The name of the band is, get this, "Spastic Colon". The gay guy, Johnny, who just so happens to be a junkie, is pretty funny. The audition scene with some ridiculous looking red headed stoner is funny too. I think it's Michael Kopelow from "The Stoned Age" but i'm not sure. That movie is pretty funny too! For guitar players, there is some really good solos in Shock 'Em Dead. There is this one riff that plays several times during the film that is so good, I had to figure it out myself. Traci Lords doesn't show any skin, but there is some from the other actresses. Traci Lords boyfriend in the movie is a complete tool. His name should be Lance or Brad or Trent or something like that.
