3.0 out of 5 stars Electrifying? Sadly not. April 24 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Lance Henriksen plays a cop who arrests serial killer Max Jenke, but after the psychopath is put to death on the electric chair he comes back to haunt his nemesis through halucinations.
Though this film is made watchable by a strong performance from Henriksen, a genuinely scarey killer and a good soundtrack, it is utterly let down by its slow pacing. It takes ages for the film to get going, and there are slabs of tedium later on. What also lowers the film is the unbelievably repetative use of f-words which becomes boring and shows a lack of imagination. Some chilling scenes can't save this Nightmare on Elm Street clone.

Lance Henriksen and Brion James in one movie! It has to be good. I saw this film a couple of years ago and thought was one of the best horror films ever. James is excellent as a recently killed serial killer and Lance Henriksen is equally as good( this movie would make for a good episode of Millennium, also starring Henriksen). Thought it is much like Wes Craven's great movie Shocker, it is a lot more scarier and it has better actors, though Mitch Pileggi of X-Files as the recently electorcuted killer was just as good as Brion James. However, I liked Horror Show better and think it is a very good film of its kind.

2.0 out of 5 stars Gonzo gorefest July 10 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Let's have some more blood in here...throw a couple of body parts on the stove... This is one of those great gonzo-killers-who-won't-die-even- when-they're-dead films that were so hot in the 80s. Don't get me wrong, I love watching the late, great Brion James chew scenery, and Lance Henriksen gives a good performance though he's somewhat hampered by the fact that he can't chew back since he's supposed to be a cop, a family man and reasonably sane. He still manages to give his characterization a real edginess. I mean, he gets to pull his own chest open in one scene. Can you get much edgier than that? Still, the dialogue rarely rises above the "F--- you!" "Yeah, well, f--- you, too, f---er!" level which is a shame.

The Horror Show (ALSO KNOW AS HOUSE 3)
Upon his execution by the electric chair, mass murderer Max Jenke or "Meat Cleaver Max" curses Detective Lucas the man responsible for his capture. Electrocuting Max however has not ended his reign of terror but given him a whole new lease of life. Max soon returns from the dead to exact his hideous revenge.
The horrors he performed before his death are insignificant compared to the circus of evil he now unleashes on the lucas family. soon not only is he losing his mind bu this house is haunted! With the help of only a jaded college professor he must make sure the next time Max gets sentenced to death, he dies. for good.
