Wes Craven is considered one of the “Masters of Horror”, and his pedigree certainly lives up to that title. With films like Last House on the Left, and the A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream (he didn’t write Scream, only directed) series under his belt, you can almost expect any film bearing his name will surely be good, and at the very least entertaining. With all that in mind, let’s take a look at his 1989 film Shocker
If you’ve ever seen 28 Days Later, the plot of Primal Rage may sound a little familiar, but on a much smaller scale… Sam Nash is a Florida college journalist is looking for a story. That quest leads him to Dr. Ethridge (Bo Svenson – with and awesome little mulleted ponytail, btw) who is conducting experiments on a baboon, trying to revitalize dead brain cells in the primate’s brain. Sam can’t get any face time with Dr. Ethridge, so his journalism buddy Duffy suggests that he break into the lab to get some recon for his story. Sam refuses to do it, so Duffy goes instead and unleashes a fury that rocks the small college campus.
