Wes Craven's "Shocker" - complete score

Today I have the score to the 1989 Wes Craven film "Shocker" starring Mitch Pileggi, best known for his portrayal of the character A.D. Skinner from the X-files. I'm a fan of Wes Craven's work and this flick wasn't one of my favorites. When I think of good Craven flicks Nightmare On Elm St., People Under the Stairs, Last House on the Left, and Scream (written by Kevin Williamson) I think that anything he did after Nightmare On Elm Street was always compared to Freddy, but this movie is certainly strange and original as far as I know. It wasn't the usual Halloween/Friday knock-off here, so give Craven credit for something different. I haven't seen it in some time, but what I remember is that the character of Horace Pinker was able to travel using electricity and kill his victims that way.

Speaking of A Nightmare on Elm St., if you are interested in the scores from those movies, head over to the Inferno Music Crypt to check out a slew of related posts.
