Anyone seen "Shockwaves"?

Post by Demosthenes » 09 Jan 2003 13:27

This is not strictly a WWII movie, but a seventies B/C-horror taking place somewhere in the pacific, but it does feature scary SS-zombies that were created by Himmler as an underwater strike force (yes, they can breathe under water). After the war, they were shipped out to the pacific (no idea why, probably as an extension of the Werwolf), where they stay peacefully until a group of unknowing tourists come by.

Does anyone know if the people who made this ever did anything similar?

House in the Hills, A (1993)

"Dark Justice" (1991) TV Series

"Freddy's Nightmares" (1988) TV Series
... aka "Freddy's Nightmares: A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Series" (1988)

Return of the Living Dead Part II (1988)
... aka Revenge of the Living Dead (1988) (USA: promotional title)

Dark Tower (1987) (as Ken Barnett)

"21 Jump Street" (1987) TV Series

Meatballs Part II (1984)
... aka Space Kid (1984)

Eyes of a Stranger (1981)


King Frat (1979)
... aka Campus King (1979)
... aka Delta House (1979/II) (USA: video title)
... aka King @$#! Frat (1979) (USA: complete title)

Shock Waves (1977)
... aka Almost Human (1977) (UK)
... aka Death Corps (1977)
