Shock 'Em Dead (1991)
Continuing with our possession theme, Shock 'Em Dead is a late entry into the short-lived Heavy Metal horror genre but it's a memorable one. It was made in the 90's but its heart is in 1986. This of course stars ex-porn star Traci Lords right after her successful stint in John Waters "Cry Baby".
This trailer has all the elements and goes for the gold right away with a shameless breast exposure. Also watch for nods to the Exorcist and the classic quote, "When you make a deal with the devil, there's always a catch".
If you like fare such as Trick Or Treat, Black Roses or Rock and Roll Zombies, you'll dig this.
Shockingly, this hasn't been put out on DVD yet so you'll have a hard time tracking it down.
Directed by Mark Freed.
Starring Traci Lords, Troy Donahue and Aldo Ray.
