Shock Waves

Director: Ken Wiederhorn Run Time: 90 min. Format: Digital Rating: PG Release Year: 1977

Starring: Brooke Adams, John Carradine, Peter Cushing

Nitehawk plunges into the deep end of horror with a screening of a new restoration of water-logged zombie flick SHOCK WAVES. Director Ken Wiederhorn will be here for a Q&A after the film moderated by Fangoria’s Sam Zimmerman.

Remember that episode of Gilligan’s Island where the crew of the Minnow met up with an old SS scientist who was once in charge of a squad of unstoppable, underwater Nazi zombies? No? Well, that’s because that’s plot for Shock Waves, director Ken Wiederhorn’s oddball horror film about a group of yachters who have a nasty run-in with a band of zombies so well versed at killing that even Hitler didn’t want anything to do with them. Shock Waves stars horror icons John Carradine, Peter Cushing and Peter Cushing’s great, big fake scar, and is certain to leave you breathless. (Get it?)
