Critic Reviews for Shock (Schock)
The film is not without interest to fans with patience to sit through the dull recitatives in exchange for the occasional beautiful aria, but the pleasures are few and far between.
Audience Reviews for Shock (Schock)
Scary? Yes in it's own way and throw Mario Bava's imganation and concept. Now Mario Bava is withouta doubt one of my top 5 directors of all time and i have seen just about all of his films and i have yet to hate one. Great acting and dubbing (italian) and some nice effects before CGI and how they make tables and shit move. And a creepy ending but the story can be predictable. For any horror fans go for it. BTW i'm not sure how this passed it's self off as another Beyond the Door film.
Ok, this isn't the best Mario Bava has to offer. I have a tendency to dislike most child actors and that brings down my enjoyment of this, as does the disjointed story itself. This film doesn't really get good until the last half an hour, which is a shame. Unfortunately, the talent of Daria Nicolodi can't save it either. Tune in for the final minutes of the film if anything else.
Usually listed as Shock since it has nothing to do with Beyond The Door. A little slow...a little disjointed...but fun in a "Bava-rian" sort of way. Interesting to see Argento's muse (and girlfriend) in a Bava film. For fans of the genre and/or the director a must see, for others...probably not.
