The movie that doesn’t exist and the Redditors who think it does

Over the years, hundreds of people online have shared memories of a cheesy Nineties movie called “Shazaam”. There is no evidence that such a film was ever made. What does this tell us about the quirks of collective memory?

The strange saga of Spookies

In one of the most convoluted production histories in all of psychotronic cinema, SPOOKIES' fickle financier sacked the original directors and their near-complete flick to bring in Troma veteran Genie Joseph to completely retool the movie. Ultimately cutting half the existing footage, restructuring what was left and then adding 40 minutes of newly shot insanity, Spookies is a wild experience, a nonsensical brain bomb that brings a raging party of kitchen-sink attitude and Fangoria FX while unleashing a dizzying array of oozing slime and monstrous beasties, hellish lizards, skeletal reapers, lust-crazed muck men, glowing brains and a full-scale spider woman transformation! It’s a mind-numbing blitz of on-the-spot ingenuity, they-can’t-do-that! continuity and jaw-dropping stupidity that turns a demonic game of hide-and-seek into a night of unrelenting terror. You’ve never experienced anything like it. UNTIL TONIGHT!

Our monthlong look at American independent horror continues with an oral history of the worst movie almost no one has seen.
