Review for Shock Theatre: 

Shock Theatre is hosted by the neurotic ghoul Dr. Shock and his devilishly lovely sidekick Nurse Goodbody. Joining them is the mischievous prankster puppet Dingbat and a new addition as puppet master, a “dream reaper,” known as The“Dirge.” The three exchange humorous banter and discuss facts drawn from “Carnival of Souls”, presented by the New Shock Theater .

Episode six is a horror hosting package created to present “Carnival of Souls.” Episode six is in high definition and portrays Dr. Shock as the proud patriarch of “Dr. Shock’s Zombie Flea Circus.”

Shock Theatre has created a zombie “Fleapocalypse” backstory for Episode 6.  It will portray a world under siege as zombie fleas escape and devour a city. In addition to the “Fleapocalypse" backstory, Shock Theatre will highlight another musical guest.  Husky Burnette will perform a song from his new album, “Tales from East End Boulevard.”  

"Carnival of Souls" is a full, two-hour program with skits, original music, movie facts and horror news.

The Shock Theatre program is going to move to a new schedule with WDEF TV12 and will now air on a regular rotation. Shock Theatre fans will be able to find Shock Theatre the first Saturday of every month on WDEF TV12.
