Shocker ★★★½

A serial killer named Pinker is on the loose. A football player runs into a pole in the endzone and can see real time visions of Pinker's attacks. The police catch Pinker, but that's merely the beginning, once he gets the power of the electric chair.

Hard rock fans will enjoy the title song, "Shocker" by The Dudes of Wrath (Paul Stanley of KISS, Desmond Child, Vivian Campbell of DIO on guitar, Rudy Sarzo on bass, Tommy Lee Motley Crue on drums). Wish there would have been more Dudes of Wrath, because this is a skilled lineup. The soundtrack, overall, has some good rock songs.

When you think of Wes Craven Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream are standouts, but this one, admittedly not in the same league, is entertaining and sometimes creative (particularly the use of electricity) fun. Recommended.
