    I thought both were pretty disappointing. I expected more from Shock, so it was the more disappointing of the two. It's still the better film though.

    Voted for Ghost Story. Saw it when it was originally at the theaters. I do have one question. Is Shock an alternate title for Beyond The Door Part 2. If so, I have seen it, many many years ago, and didn't really care for it much.

    Shock, easily. EASILY. I did not know Bava had it in him to make this. And, yes, I've seen the House of Exorcism cut of Lisa and the Devil. That scene in the bed, with the hair... literally like she was floating through space. And: that scene comes completely out of nowhere. I will never forget that moment, as long as I live.
