Shock Waves ★★ Death Corps; Almost Human 1977 (PG)

Group of mutant-underwater-zombie-Nazi-soldiers terrorizes stranded tourists staying at a deserted motel on a small island. Cushing is the mad scientist intent on recreating the Nazi glory days with the seaweed-attired zombies. Odd B-grade, more or less standard horror flick somehow rises (slightly) above badness. Halpin's name was erroneously listed as Halprin—even on the original movie poster! 90m/C VHS, DVD . Peter Cushing, Brooke Adams, John Carradine, Luke Halpin, Jack Davidson, Fred Buch; D: Ken Wiederhorn; W: Ken Wiederhorn, John Kent Harrison; C: Reuben Trane; M: Richard Einhorn.
