Shock Waves (1977)


When their ship hits a strange “reef” while on their vacation, a group of tourists wind up on a seemingly abandoned remote island. But they soon discover that the island is inhabited by a Nazi scientist who went into exile at the end of World War II, taking with him his army of Nazi zombie supersoldiers. Now the group must find a way to fix their boat and evacuate the island before the ocean becomes their grave. I give a definite A for atmosphere and mood and general creativity for the zombies but the rest of the movie falls flat. It’s long, drawn out and not too much interesting stuff happens. If the mood were able to salvage this film, it would have been worth seeing. Otherwise, it’s forgettable.
