Introduction by director Ken Wiederhorn!
The same year he appeared as Grand Moff Tarkin in Star Wars, Peter Cushing also played another grand villain in Shock Waves: a former SS commander involved in the creation of aquatic Nazi zombies as secret weapons. The “Death Corps” project was a failed endeavor to say the least, and now, after their boat begins to sink, a group of tourists find themselves stuck on the island where the reclusive, aging commander and the water-based menaces still reside. With a cast that also includes Brooke Adams and Jack Halpin as two of the shipwrecked vacationers and John Carradine as the acerbic captain, this odd, atmospheric little shocker by writer-director Ken Wiederhorn (who dabbled again with the walking dead for 1988’s Return of the Living Dead Part II), started a long tradition of Nazi zombie flicks, and it still remains the finest.
