News reporter Jill Burton (Nevada Caldwell) investigates a late night gameshow, The Uh-Oh! Show, on which the contestants are dismembered live on TV, as she figures there's something not quite legal about the show (well, they do dismember people). Then her boyfriend Richard (Jarrett Ricker) goes onto the show - against her advice -, is decapitated, and vanishes from the face of the earth. Now Jill knows she has to do something, and she soon enlists the help of her cameraman Oscar (Kenny Rogers) and local reporter Ray (Bruce Blauer), but is at teh same time fired by her boss Dean (Jack Amos), because he also runs the network that airs The Uh-Oh! Show ...

Meanwhile, behind the scenes of The Uh-Oh! Show, trouble are brewing because Jackie (Brooke McCarter) doesn't like the violent turn the show has taken lately, while the show's creator Fred (Joel D.Wynkoop) wants to revamp the show's concept as a primetime show incorporating Grimm's fairy tales. Eventually, Jackie and his assistant/girlfriend Champagne (Krista Grotte) are fired from the show ...

Somehow, Jill, Oscar and Ray manage to team up with Jackie and Champagne, and they decide to raid The Uh-Oh! Show's studio right through the first broadcast of the new Grim Fairy Tales ... and Jill gets captured and is about to get sawed in half right in front of a cheering audience. But Jill's friends come to her rescue, and not only expoose Fred - who has taken over hosting duties himself - but also fry him by sending thousands of Volts through his body live on air, in front of the very same cheering studio audience.

After that experience, our heroes try to stay away from media violence as far as possible, Jackie and Champagne become puppeteers, and Jill, Ray and Oscar now work for the local news of a public access channel - but will this stop the public's thirst for media violence for even one bit?

Lloyd Kaufman has an extended cameo as a pimp, extra-sized genre personality Babette Bombshell plays one of his hookers. Director Herschell Gordon Lewis himself appears several times during the movie as a turbaned weirdo reading twisted fairytales to a bunch of kids.


Though as gory as ever, The Uh-Oh! Show is not among Herschell Gordon Lewis' best films, and not on par with his classics, probably mostly because when Lewis started, he had the gore genre all to himself, and nowadays gore movies are a dime a dozen.

That said though, The Uh-Oh! Show shows that at 80 years of age, Lewis is still on top of his game, in this film he remains as respectless as ever, maybe even more so, and once more mixes buckets of blood and heaps of dismembered body parts with a healthy dose of humour that ranges from subtle to broad and even slightly self-reflexive media satire - and it's all set in garish, 1970's style colours.

All of this results in an utterly respectless comedy, and despite it isn't among Lewis' best, you will probably still like it - provided you're into political incorrectness, gore and severed bodyparts ...
