They Got the Gore Right
10 October 2017 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

The Uh-oh Show (2009)

** (out of 4)

The Uh-oh Show is on a television show that is on cable that can have the contestants win a large sum of money, dream vacations and other great things as long as they can answer three questions correct. If they miss a question then they have to spin the wheel where they will then lose a body part. The show is becoming a hit so the station orders the producers to try and come up with something for prime-time.

THE UH-OH SHOW turned out to be the next-to-last film for the legendary Herschell Gordon Lewis and there's no question that he wasn't meaning for this thing to be taken very serious. Fans of the cult drive-in director will enjoy knowing that he returned to Florida to film this movie and there's no question that he lived up to his title as being The Godfather of Gore. With that said, this here is pretty much a one-joke film and that joke gets rather tiresome long before the 87-minute running time is up.

If you're a fan of Lewis' gore films like 2000 MANIACS, BLOOD FEAST and COLOR ME BLOOD RED then you'll enjoy that portion of this movie. The idea of a game show where you can win money or lose body parts was rather clever and the film gets off to a great and funny start as we're introduced to some rather weird characters who end up getting chopped up. The only problem is that the movie really falls flat whenever there's not some gore action happening. A lot of times we've got silly characters discussing things that just aren't overly interesting and this is where the movie loses its fun.

The film was obviously meant as a spoof and there are actually some funny moments where the director takes on himself. There are some nods to some of the previous movies he made and even the likes of Lloyd Kaufman shows up playing a pimp. The gore is mostly real, although some CGI is used at times. The gore is certainly the reason to see this movie but overall it falls well short of what you'd consider a classic.
