PRESENTATION

The lightning strikes "SHOCK FILM", turning red and damaged.

Technique: The text fading in and out, the lightning striking the text, the text turning red and torn up.

Music/Sounds: A eerie synth fanfare, which is actually a stock music piece "Music, Drama, Billboard, Symphonic 02" from the Sound Ideas Series 1000 sound effects library, accompanied by a whoosh and a stock thunderclap from the Cinesound/BBC sound effects library (the same thunderclap used on the Ismail Productions, Lightning Video and Southern Star/Hanna-Barbera Australia logos).

Availability: Seen on post-1982 prints of “The Wizard of Gore” (1970).
