This devilish brute is thought to be Krampus, a creature from the folklore of Alpine countries, on the prowl for naughty children hoping to punish their mischief. Who can stop this fiend from imposing his dastardly will? Perhaps Dr. Shock, Nurse Goodbody and Dingbat will find a way to stop him!
On Dec. 21 at midnight, the cast and crew of Shock Theatre will air its fourth episode. This edition of the quirky show’s storied life will present “Santa Claus Conquers the Martians,” in high definition—and has a back-story of an epic battle between Krampus and Santa Claus.
This is the fourth installment in which Jack Gray, who portrays Dr. Shock, and the cast and crew of Shock Theatre revamp and re-air the infamous horror-hosting program on a local station. WDEF Channel 12 has stepped up to the plate and given Shock Theatre the platform to project its eccentricity over the airwaves once again.
Episode Four is a full two-hour program with skits, original music, movie facts, and even a toy segment. Make sure to tune in a get a healthy dose of shock from the Doctor.
