In the latest social media satire, the Shudder Original, Shook, it features fitting use of the title. After a social media influencer, Genelle (played by real-life influencer Genelle Seldon) is murdered in the opening scene by a serial killer, our main character Mia (Daisye Tutor), in reaction to the news says, deadpan to her livestream, “I’m shook.” She then monologues that this is a time for selfless acts, so she’s going to babysit Chico, a dog owned by her sister Nicole (Emily Goss), instead of going to a livestream with her friends. These bits of satire are solid, and some are funny – especially the opening scene when Mia and Genelle are being photographed on the red carpet for their followers, only for it to be revealed they’re on a makeshift red carpet against a plain building in an empty parking lot.
