Local “kooky spooky” horror group returns to Channel 12
What is Shock Theatre? Simply put, it’s a haunted world featuring classic and contemporary horror films, hosted by the neurotic ghoul Dr. Shock and his devilishly lovely sidekick Nurse Goodbody.
Joining them is the mischievous prankster puppet Dingbat. A new addition as puppet master is a “dream reaper” known as The Dirge.
In “Bloody Pit of Horror”, the seventh episode created by the local horror film group, you can expect a series of vignettes depicting different forms of torture humorously acted out by the cast of Shock Theatre in their special kooky spooky way.
In addition to presenting Massimo Pupillo’s “Bloody Pit of Horror”, you’ll witness Nurse Goodbody giving a lethal injection to Wolfy, Dirge the Dream Reaper’s backstory, the cast trying to communicate telepathically and in the finale, Dr. Shock performing his death defying feat, “The Electric Chair”.
And just in case that isn’t enough, Shock Theatre will highlight another musical guest, local noise rockers Sickness of the System.
The latest episode will air Saturday night at Midnight on WDEF-TV 12.
