"You know, just once - just ONCE - I would like to be in a film that is not a complete and utter f***ing embarrassment! I'm not asking for Shakespeare, I'm not asking for Anton Chekhov, I'm not even asking for David fricking Mamet...I just once would like to be in a film that doesn't make me cringe at the thought of people actually watching it." A B-movie horror-comedy blast, at least for 2/3rds of the time. If you're acquainted with Misty Mundae movies, then you'll love her segment as Rebecca Raven, an underground movie star sick of being known more for her nudity than her acting. Playing a more belligerent version of herself (one hopes!) a tide of winking self-referential mockery comes flowing like a Bruce Campbell twitter feed. Seeking solitude, she escapes to an isolated country house that she bought on the cheap because the previous owner was involved in some demonic rituals - and, it turns out, is not what you'd call 100% dead. Meanwhile, the studio producer is in search of the next Rebecca Raven and screens two short films, so essentially Shock-O-Rama consists of three mini movies. Mecharachnia is occasionally funny (a pursuing police spaceship has the best lines) but way overlong for the material. Lonely Are The Brain gets back on the scoreboard with AJ Kahn growing suspicious about the neurological experiments she and other young women are participating in under the supervision of evasive sexy doctor Julian Wells. Your mileage may vary, but I had a fun time with this sendup which no doubt was greatly enhanced by familiarity with its participants.
