“Shocker” may have done enough on VHS and DVD over the years to warrant a sequel. Bloody Disgusting hears that “Shocker : No More Nice Guy” could be in the works.
The original told of killer Horace Pinker (Mitch Pileggi), a mad-man whose made a "deal with the devil"; when he is executed, he does not actually die, but instead becomes pure electricity who is able to possess others to continue his murderous way. Serve two would no doubt pit Pinker against a new jock… or hero… or heroine. Wonder if Pileggi – best known for playing ‘Skinner’ on TVs “The X-Files” – would return?
Originally, Craven planned to produce remakes of both “Shocker” and his early 90s flop “The People Under The Stairs” but there’s seemingly been a change in plans – both are now sequels.
