Audience Reviews for Shock 'Em Dead
A nerd loses his job, gets evicted, and fails at a guitar audition all in one day. Along the way he meets a Voodoo priestess (Estelle) to whom he sells is soul in exchange for becoming a famous metal guitarist (ala Faust, Paganini, Robert Johnson, et al). He soon learns in order to stay alive, he has to kill other people. Michael Angelo Batio provides the guitar work, Traci Lords is a prude, and Aldo Ray performs in his final role as a pizza shop owner. A very funny dig at Ozzy is included. I'm extremely surprised I'd not heard of this until now! http://www.veoh.com/watch/v370162ne779aZZ
1/1/2009 This is movie 2 of a metal horror movie marathon: I really liked this one. The premise of buying your wish from the devil but living with the cost was really well done. His calculated moves toward being a rock god was so great. Especially with the band's former leader throwing such great hot pink hissy fits!
This is either 4 stars or negative 4 stars depending on whether or not you're in the mood for some garbage. Hilarious story of a nerd who looks kind of like Mark McGrath selling his soul to the voodoo devil (or something?) to become the greatest hair-metal artist in the world.
