Audience Reviews for Shock Waves

    Shock Waves is one of the best Nazis zombie films ever made. Although the recent Dead Snow is a great film, but Shock Waves remains THE Nazis zombie film to see. Starring Peter Cushing as an SS commander living on a secluded island, who was commander of a squad scientifically altered SS soldiers who are zombies. Director Ken Wederhorn crafts a solid horror film that is an overlooked classic. The film relies on atmosphere and it works very well to build up tension and horror. The negative of this film is grainy, even if it's restored, but I felt it added a touch of old school horror, something that we haven't seen in a while. The film is a lot of fun and is a necessity to watch if you're a fan of zombie films. The plot is very interesting and I thought it was original. Shock Waves is a creepy zombie film that doesn't rely on cheap trick to create tension or horror. Peter Cushing is excellent in his role, and it's hard to picture anyone else in the role. Shock Waves is an accomplished horror film that delivers good chills and delivers a good, entertaining hour and a half. This is is director Ken Wederhorn's best zombie film. Shock Waves remains one of the best films in the Nazis zombie genre. An overlooked gem of the genre, Shock Waves is a classic film that still needs to be seen by many fans of horror films everywhere. Truly an awesome film to watch.

    Well i thought going into this movie i was gonna be seeing something else i dont know if it was the dvd cover or what but i kinda felt mislead into thinking this was gonna be a zombie movie but that wasnt the case at all. the movie kicks off with a bunch of people that chartered this small boat of course u got the complaining guy onboard fast forward its night the boat gets run into by a *ghost ship* they seek a island for safety and come face to face with nazi super soldiers that have been under water for decades.ok movie not top notch peter cushings role was decent and worth checking out but no blood or gore here overall 3 stars

    Not the best but Peter Cushing and NAVI Zombies make it worth checking out, IF you're into this sort of thing.
