Part One Of My Review Of The Underrated Fun 80's Horror Flick, Shocker(1989) Starring Peter Berg, Cami Cooper, Sam Scarber, Michael Murphy, Jessica Craven, John Tesh, Richard Brooks, Heather Langenkamp, Mitch Pileggi, Bingham Ray, Keith Anthony-Lubow-Bellamy, And Ted Raimi. Directed By Wes Craven. Trivia # Shocker was filmed in ten weeks and in a low budget. Craven said that all this savings are in a small team work with talent and low known actors. # According to Wes Craven, the film was severely cut for an R-rating. It took around 13 submissions to the MPAA to receive an "R" instead of an "X". # In Jonathan's second dream, he looks up at a street sign and sees the street names Maddalena and Wagner. Marianne Maddalena was a producer of the film, and the actor playing the executioner was Bruce Wagner. # When Jonathan and his father enter the Tavern after the funeral of their family, a news program is playing on the TV in the background and discussing the murders. Someone immediately changes the channel and on comes (briefly) the 1986 concert footage of Alice Cooper's The Nightmare Returns tour. # One of the bodies that Horace took over (the male "Road Worker" with long black hair) is a former guitarist for Alice Cooper. # One of the bodies that Horace took over (the "Jogger" in the park) is Jonathan Craven, son of director Wes Craven.
