I rented this film a few years ago strictly because I was a fan of Peter Cushing. I thought "Hm - Underwater Nazi Zombies? This should be fun." I had a mental image of Cushing running around in some green velvet Victorian jacket and a full head of hair opening cages and sending zombies off to do his bidding. Boy was I wrong. I got a grainy, dark, brooding little 70s movie that kept me looking over my shoulder. Pete looks terrible in a torn uniform, scarred face and bald pate. His performance is brief but striking. The rest of the cast (John Carradine - excepted) is fairly unfamiliar. This makes it all the more terrifying. They could be your neighbours being chased around and murdered by these horrifying monsters. And the zombies are some of the scarriest on film. They don't scream, or eat anybody. They just bob out of the water staring through black goggles and cut a path of destruction across the island. Wonderful. Contrasting to what I expected, this amazed me. It has since become one of my all time favourite horror films. It sure scared me more than Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Kind of a letdown there. But then I always could trust in Cushing.
