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!”
