What’s On Now?! VINCENT PRICE’s Totally Forgotten Classic “SHOCK” (1946)!!!

You Know The Word.

We All Do.

Some Of Us Use It Quite Often, Honestly.

SHOCK

Yep.

An Often Used Word, Indeed.

So What Would You Do If I Asked You…

"Hey There, Have You Ever Seen The VINCENT PRICE Flick "SHOCK" Before?"

??? ??? ???

Yeah.

Chances Are You’d Say…

"VINCENT PRICE Did A Movie Called "SHOCK"?!? I Hadn't The Foggiest!!!"

Okay…

…So You Might Not Say It Exactly Like That.

In Fact…

…I’m The Only Person I Know Of These Days Who Still Says..

"I Hadn't The Foggiest."

BUT…

…That’s Not The Point Of This.

THE POINT…

…Is…

…Right Now…

…At This Very Moment…

…I’m Writing To Y’all About This Flick WHILE I’m Watching It.

The Flick Is…

SHOCK

(1946)

…Starring…

VINCENT PRICE

&

LYNN BARI

&

ANABEL SHAW

πŸ˜€

Basically…

…The Plot Is Rather Simple.

A Woman Named JANET (ANABEL SHAW) Suffers A Great SHOCK When She Witnesses A Man Kill His Wife By Bludgeoning Her With A Candle Stick…

…And Due To Said Great SHOCK, JANET Slips Into A Coma.

As She (JANET) Comes Out Of Her Coma, She Recognizes The Man She Had Seen Kill His Wife.

The Problem Is…

…He’s Her DOCTOR!!!

So Who’s Her Doctor, You Ask?!?

Why…

VINCENT PRICE

…OF COURSE!!!

πŸ˜€

If You Want/Need More Info…

…Do Yourself A Favor And WATCH THE MOVIE!!!

πŸ˜‰

SHOCK

…Is A Personal Favorite…

…But It’s A Very Acquired Taste.

I Just Don’t Think Most Horror Fans Would Take To It Too Easily.

This Is More Of A Classic “Suspense” Yarn.

VINCENT PRICE Doesn’t Puff Himself Up And Over-Act In This One.

He Stays Very Calm And Almost Meek.

He’s VERY Unassuming, That’s Fo SHO.

Other Than JANET…

…I Think The Rest Of The Characters Were Dealt A Blow Of…

SHOCK

…When It Comes Out That The Doctor Is Indeed The Murderer.

πŸ™‚

This Film Is In Black&White…

…And Is Very Subtle.

A Minor Film That Pissed-Off A Lot Of People When It Came Out In 1946.

There Were Many MANY People Who Had Survived WORLD WAR II, But Suffered From Some Form Of SHOCK.

And Those Same People Began Refusing Treatment After Seeing This Film.

Just Goes To Show You How Powerful A Flick Can Honestly Be.

Fo SHO Fo SHO!

πŸ™‚

As I Said Before…

…Do Yourself A Favor And Check This One Out.

It’s A Real Diamond In The Rough, And A Totally Forgotten Classic.

Perhaps It’s Time To Un-Forget-It, Eh?!?

EH!?!?!

Again I Say…

Fo SHO Fo SHO!!!

  1. I love Vincent Price. He had such a charm about him. When he died, I was blown away to find out where he was born. Based on his accent, I’d had him pegged for a couple places, and I was dead wrong.
    If you don’t already know, try to guess, and then go look it up. It may surprise you as much as it surprised me. For one of us, he might be considered a “local.”
