Movie Synopsis

About to be elec­tro­cut­ed for a cat­a­log of heinous crimes, the unre­pen­tant Horace Pinker trans­forms into a ter­ri­fy­ing ener­gy source. Only young ath­lete Jonathan Parker, with an uncan­ny con­nec­tion to Pinker through bizarre dreams, can fight the pow­er­ful demon. The two dive in and out of tele­vi­sion pro­grams, chas­ing each oth­er from chan­nel to chan­nel through stun­ning sce­nes of dis­as­ter, game shows and old reruns.

 

A blend of daz­zling spe­cial effects and an elec­tri­fy­ing sound­track, SHOCKER stars Michael Murphy (X-Men: The Last Stand, Batman Returns), actor/director Peter Berg (actor Smokin’ Aces, direc­tor Lone Survivor), Cami Cooper (Lawnmower Man 2: Beyond Cyberspace) and Mitch Pileggi (The X-Files, Sons of Anarchy) as Horace Pinker.
