In addition to “Frankenstein’s Castle of Freaks”, Shock Theatre takes a road trip to Roller Coaster Skate World in Fort Oglethorpe.

It seems that Dr. Shock and his crew will be overseeing a grudge match. The Roller Derby Girls take on the Zombie Creepers in Episode 14.

Yes, that’s right, Shock Theatre goes skating but the stakes are high as a rumble is brewing at Roller  Coaster Skate World, when the Roller Derby Girls try to teach the Zombie Creepers a thing or two about the Roller Derby.


Shock Theatre will also be screening another cult classic of course, Dick Randall’s “Frankenstein’s Castle of Freaks”. This is a 1970’s Itallian horror gothic film that is loosely based on Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein and starring Rossano Brazzi as Count Frankenstein, Michael Dunn, Edmund Purdom, Gordon Mitchell and Luciano Pigozzi.

All the fun gets underway on Saturday Night/Sunday Morning at 12:05AM April 4th, just after Midnight on WDEF TV12.

Shock Theatre Presents "The Whip and the Body" March 7th
February 21. 2015


TWATB              
Chattanooga, TN. —Saturday, February 21, 2015

The Cast and Crew of Shock Theatre turns out lucky number Episode 13 as Shock Theatre presents Mario Bava’s, “The Whip and the Body”.

In addition to “The Whip and the Body”, you can expect to see Dingbat and Dirge accidentally electrocute Dr. Shock and Nurse Goodbody.


It doesn’t turn out well for our humble horror host and his devilishly lovely sidekick. Dingbat and Dirge do manage to reanimate Dr. Shock and Nurse Goodbody before the end of the episode and all is back to normal by the final scene.

Shock Theatre will be screening another cult classic of course, as Shock Theatre presents a masterpiece by a master film maker, Mario Bava’s “The Whip and the Body”.  A brutal but compelling ghost story drives the plot in this Itallian horror thriller.  The film is shot at an isolated castle on the Eastern European coast. Kurt (Christopher Lee), the older son of Count Menliff (Gustavo De Nardo), was in marriage preparations with Nevenka (Daliah Lavi). However, Kurt had an affair with Tania, the daughter of Menliffs' servant Giorgia (Harriet Medin), and Tania committed suicide because of Kurt's prospective marriage. Count Menliff rejected Kurt and he left the castle. Meanwhile, Nevenka married Cristiano (Tony Kendall), Kurt's younger brother.

One day, Kurt arrives at the castle, superficially to celebrate Cristiano and Nevenka but in fact he is to reclaim his title and fortune, which supposedly also includes Nevenka. During an evening on the beach and following a session of flogging, masochistic Nevenka understands that she is still in love with Kurt. Frustrated, she does not return to the castle and is eventually found unconscious by the butler Losat (Luciano Pigozzi). At the same night, Kurt is killed under curious circumstances, with the same dagger Tania had committed suicide with. Now, Kurt is dead but a series of events hints that his ghost has started to haunt the castle for revenge.

This is a film to watch if you’re a film enthusiast. Mario Bava is a master at lighting, set design and cinematography.

All the fun gets underway on Saturday Night/Sunday Morning at 12:05AM March 7, just after Midnight on WDEF TV12.

Edward D. Wood. The film stars Bela Lugosi, Tony McCoy, Loretta King and Tor Johnson. Rumors abound about what may go on at a creepy mansion just out of town. The house is owned by Dr. Eric Vornoff who is conducting experiments to turn people into super-beings through the use of atomic power. Reporter Janet Lawton decides to look into what is going there and its possible connection to men that have disappeared in the area. When Vornoff takes her prisoner and begins to use her as a test subject in a scientific experiment. The story reveals a brainwashed monster (Tor Johnson) and a fake blow up octopus prop, that isn’t very convincing. This is the fun in watching Ed Wood movies.
