...not even remotely as effective as its premise might've indicated.

As always, Vincent Price is suited to be a fine villain.

Audience Reviews for Shock

½

Vinnie kills his nagging wife in a flyaway moment of rage, but is seen by an hapless innocent busy looking for her husband, and so begins this little bit o'sinister as Vinnie wonders about whether he can be a coldblooded killer, whether he is, or maybe he was just trying it out for size, one time, no harm, no foul. Not bad.

Nice nostalgic thriller featuring the indomitable Mr. Vincent Price as a psychiatrist caught between his manipulative mistress and his ever weakening sense of morality. Shock isn't groundbreaking cinema but it's a solid vehicle for Price's villainous screen persona.

Price is shocking in this movie. I recommend seeing it without reading the synopsis or anything first, it's more shocking that way. I love this movie and was shocked to find that it is featured on almost every one of those 50 movie pack DVD boxes. Anyway, if you love Vincent Price, check this out.
