"Be prepared for a crisp picture that commands laughs and delivers goose bumps. Shock Value is more than a good b-movie, it’s a wildly inspired feature that just might change the course of director Douglas Rath’s career. It could be the introduction to a future star in Anthony Bravo. It just might pick up enough steam to earn itself a cult classic status. It’s that good. It really is. It’s also yet another addition to my Best of 2014 list, which you’ll see posted in December. Don’t do yourself an injustice and snooze on this one, it’s a masterful trip into respectfully retro filmmaking, and it’s as disconcerting as they come."
