Schlock-Wire: Blue Underground Revives SHOCK WAVES On Blu-Ray… And In Theaters This Fall

Blue Underground is reviving its zombie-themed ’70s cult favorite Shock Waves in a big way this fall: not only are they bringing to blu-ray in a new special edition, they’re also giving it a limited theatrical run at select theaters during the fall. If you’ve never seen this film, it boasts a cast including Brooke Adams and Peter Cushing and was also the first film for director Ken Weiderhorn.  The new disc not only includes a new high-def version of the film but some new extras as well.  Read on for all the nautical Nazi details, including a full theater itinerary and links for further info…

SHOCK WAVES Rises From The Depths – In Theaters This Fall!

“Typically, these kinds of films get the short-shrift by studios and never make their appearance on Blu-Ray or, if they do, their release, quality and features are very limited. Not here. Blue Underground once again sticks to its guns and impresses us with a top notch presentation for such a small and obscure film, and with extras that are nicely put together with a touch that shows love and appreciation for the movie!”
