Movie Info

Carrie meets Porky's as Charles in Charge co-stars Scott Baio and Willie Aames re-team for this mischievous-minded teen comedy about a hormonal high school science student suddenly bestowed with telekinetic powers. Emerson High School genius Barney Springboro (Baio) has a keen understanding of the periodic table of the elements, and a curious knack for experimentation. One day, while Barney is conducting a particularly sensitive experiment in horticulture, the lab is suddenly set ablaze, and his

A half-baked, rather retarded parody of Carrie and a number of other films that, using the awesome power of their ignorance, drove telekinesis into the ground.

The only possible reason to watch this one is for the nostalgia factor.

Zapped! fancies itself to be the bad boy and flirts with that image, but this low-rent production is far too wholesome and blandly unfunny for that affectation to be convincing.

Zapped!'s place as a bona fide cult classic is nothing short of baffling...

Surprisingly, the special effects aren't bad but they're wasted in a film that features a vomiting contest as a highlight. Skip this one.

Audience Reviews for Zapped!

A fun and very funny comedy, I enjoyed it a lot. Of course, it is does get a bit too goofy at times, but I still enjoyed it.

This is the basic high school sex comedy. A kid drinks a potion that gives him telekinetic powers and the only thing he uses it for is to see naked girls.

So funny teen high school comedy and in the prom scene is like a Carrie-type on nudity and sexual situations. Whoooo!!

A pretty amusing 80's teen comedy. While it is amusing it isn't actually really very funny, with a few exceptions. Scartman Cruthers is in this as well, probably most famous for his role in The Shining. Barney is a science wiz. While working on an experiment he accidently causes an explosion which knocks him out. When he wakes up he has gained telekinetic powers, ie the ability to move things with his mind. Barney quickly uses his powers for what any other healthy teenager would. To give him an edge in gambling pursuits and to expose ladies boobies. Pretty generic of this era of comedy, actually a disappointment as far as laughs go. I didn't really find myself laughing at much here, though I did find the overall film entertaining and amusing enough. Worth a watch for fans of 80's teen comedies i guess, but far from essential.
