The hotel in the film is an actual Biltmore Hotel in Florida that was shut down for a two-year period and was abandoned at the time of filming. Director Ken Wiederhorn paid $250 to rent the building for the shoot. The hotel was renovated a couple of years after the shoot and now charges significantly more than $250 per room, per night.

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.
