"What should've killed him only made him stronger..."
Jonathan has visions of a serial killer that breaks into homes to slaughter entire families. One day, his own adoptive family is butchered.
Therefore, he tries to capture the killer and succeeds. The murderer is strapped to the electric chair and fried.
However, the bad dreams do not stop. Now, Horace the murderer seems to be moving through electric currents and continues to kill. He tries to kill Jonathan by jumping from body to body, killing all of Jonathan’s allies, to get to him.
Shocker is a very special movie. It is a combination of many good ideas. Horace, the killer, reminds us a bit of Freddy Krueger, from the Nightmare on Elm Street series. He is judged and put to death, but comes back to life to get revenge. Add to that the power to control electricity and a fiercer look.
This movie is really interesting but sometimes, the authors exaggerate. Everything goes fine until Horace and Jonathan play ‘Hide and Seek’ within the television stations.
The special effects are good and the atmosphere is more than realistic. We can feel the difficulty the hero has to fight the people he cherishes, up to the point of killing them, just to exorcise the killer.
