This horror movie concerns a shipwrecked yachting party. Rose and her fellow yacht-mates, including the captain run aground on an island when they hit an odd-looking freighter. Once beached, they meet up with an aging SS Commander who had been in charge of a crew of zombies. Written by
The first Zombie to die when Brooke Adams pulls off his goggles falls dead face down on the Patio. A few moments later when the Sandy Blond Deck Hand is grabbing cushions upstairs he looks down and sees the same Zombie but now he is on his side with his face up. See more »
This underrated little movie is a fairly interesting one. It's one of my own horror favorites, which is saying a lot indeed. With a story vaguely reminiscent of George Romero's Night of the Living Dead, Shock Waves benefits from fitting cheap creepy music and enjoyable performances by both John Carradine (in a supporting part as the ship's captain) and Peter Cushing (as the chief villain--and what a villain!). The pace is well maintained throughout and there are quite a few good scenes: watch out for the underwater fights! Well, an excellent bit of low-grade horror.
