"The poster was irresistible: "See Blood Thirsty Zombies! Space Aliens! and a Super Colossal Brain!" So it was that in October '05 I whimsically attended the New York screen premiere of Shock-O-Rama at the Pioneer Theater. Brett Piper's latest movie stars Misty Mundae, Julian Wells, AJ Khan, Caitlin Ross, and other EI Cinema regulars.
This is not a bare excuse for soft core porn as many of these actors' earlier vehicles have been. Shock-O-Rama is a lighthearted treatment of classic science fiction and horror clichés. Yet, it is not just a parody; it works as a stand-alone sci-fi/horror movie. Humor pervades without drowning the storylines.
Shock-O-Rama is actually three interconnecting tales. The central one, which holds the other two in place, is "Zombie This!" Misty Mundae plays a B-movie soft core scream queen (sound familiar?) who is fired by an independent New Jersey based studio, prompting a funny tirade from her that includes a biting and all too credible evaluation of her employers and her fans. Spending her first night of unemployment in the country, Misty's character accidentally unleashes a real zombie much like the ones she has battled many times in her films. Self-referential humor abounds as in the obligatory bathtub scene (as best as I can remember the line several months later): "At least I can get naked without someone filming it!" Meantime, back at the studio, the execs' ongoing search for a replacement actress causes them (and us) to view shorts involving junkyard aliens ("Mechanoid") and, yes, a super colossal brain ("Lonely is the Brain").
The film is creative, well scripted, well directed, and professionally acted. Given the shoe-string budget, the FX and post production are quite good. They include an effective stop action sequence with a robot (reminiscent of a War of the Worlds tripod) constructed in a junkyard by aliens.
Though it should not be approached with anything like the expectations one has of mainstream, high-budget, Hollywood productions, Shock-O-Rama is a great deal of fun and is an altogether impressive independent work.
Pretty darn good...

"...the cover come on, I could not say no to that. Well it is about three tales that end up being linked to one story. There's a story about a zombie, one about an alien, and another about a brain. They are all interesting and the way they linked them was interesting too. I didn't find myself bored with this one at all, it has a little bit of everything. Well done. I would recommend this one."
The best Shock-O-Rama Cinema film ever made

"Good acting, good cinematography, good story. Shock-O-Rama is a fun, sexy, and gore filled spoof of E.I. Independent Cinema's films. A must see for horror fans."
Sweet! All around!

"This movie is separated into a few different story lines and cleverly so. Rebecca Raven (Misty Mundae-Yum) is a B actress who wants a meaty part and winds up losing her job. Her boss needs to find a new actress who isn't afraid to show her goods. So he begins reviewing tapes-these are the separate storylines.
The first takes place in a junkyard where an alien space craft lands and dukes it out with two lovers on the outs with hilarious results.
The second takes place at an isolated cabin where Rebecca is hiding out. She resurrects the corpse of a cultist. There is plenty of nudity and gore and humor in this section. Misty Mundae is a beauty that has that girl next door quality.
The last takes place at a house where a group of women are having their dreams studied and they start dying off. AJ Khan stands out and not just because of her good looks.
I don't want to give away too much other than to say that this movie is cheesy and definitely a B movie with an A+ grade. I enjoyed it whole heartedly. This is not academy award material but good fun."
