Getting Back into the regular October swing of things after our five week, ten movie, tribue to the classics from 1981, we are gonna gear things up with a double feature of SHOCK WAVES and THE BROOD. I think it is gonna be pretty cool. You should check it out with me. Anyways, enought about me, here's a little bit about thse amazing movies!

Shock Waves, (alternate titles: Almost Human (UK), Death Corps), is a 1977 horror movie written and directed by Ken Wiederhorn. A group of tourists encounter aquatic Nazi zombies when they become shipwrecked. It stars Peter Cushing as a former SS commander, Brooke Adams as a tourist, and John Carradine as the captain of the tourists' boat.

Jason Howard of Influx Magazine rated it B+ and called it "the best of the Nazi-zombie genre" And really, who an I to even try and argue with Jason? Jason seems legit to me.

The Brood is a 1979 Canadian science fiction psychological horror film written and directed by David Cronenberg, and starring Oliver Reed, Samantha Eggar, and Art Hindle. The film follows a man uncovering an eccentric psychologist's therapy techniques on his institutionalized wife, amidst a series of brutal murders committed from an offspring of mutant children that coincides with the investigation. The film's soundtrack was composed by Howard Shore, in his film score debut.

Released in 1979 from New World Pictures, the film initially received mixed reviews from critics. Over the years, later reviews were more favourable regarding the film and has since developed a cult following.

In his review of The Brood, Roger Ebert called it "a bore" and "disgusting in ways that are not entertaining", and even went as far as asking, "Are there really people who want to see reprehensible trash like this?" So an extremely positve review from the late, great, Mr. Ebert. I do believe we are all set!
