Poor attempt by Craven to create a new "Freddy" or good flick?

I didn't like Horror Show. Strange that they came out in the same year and were so similar. Did you know Horror Show was originally supposed to be House 3?

could have been better..the concept wasn't so bad but the kid was kinda lame and it wasn't very realistic either...not that movies are supposed to be but in some scenes it was just too fake and cheesy...the part that i thought was wretchedly stupid was when he actually became the recliner that jonathon was sitting in and those horrribly fake eyes pop out..BAD!

Yeah. Horror Show was originally House 3. But since they changed the title, there now is no House 3. BUT, there's a House 4. Before I knew about Horror Show, this baffled me to no end.
House was good.

Yeah, it was stupid to call the last House film part 4 when they skipped over 3.

But Horror Show wasn't much of a House movie though. It hardly took place in the house.

I like Shocker,it was kinda cool how it was in the vein of NOES.Just be greatful it didnt spawn 5-6 awful sequels if you hated this movie.

I liked the film it wasnt the greatest but I thought it was pretty good, You know any guy whos name is "Horace Pinker" is going to be a lunatic plus being a TV repair man, that shit rots your brain.

IMO the guy had 2 options TV repairman or serial killer with a name like that, funny how he picked both.

I really like Shocker. I have it on DVD which has great Wes commentary.

&

Wasn't House 4 only House 4 in Europe?

I thought the movie sucked. The last decent Wes Craven movie was "The People under the Stairs". He really should stop making movies.
