Do you know if the electronic soundtrack was made available at least in bootleg form?

Howlin' Wolf Records are supposed to release it on CD soon.

Here's a Soundtrack forum news thread: http://www.filmscoremonthly.com/boar...ID=1&archive=0

That's excellent news!! It's a great eerie electronic soundtrack. And as one member there says, we also need The Prowler's soundtrack as well by Einhorn too.

Reviews are never helpful when the reviewer keeps telling us how much they hate the movie. It's not for everyone, but one comment really sticks out from that DVD Talk review:
Quote:
Shock Waves is a cheap, uninteresting, and entirely too forgettable genre effort from the 70s, a decade that otherwise revitalized horror cinema. I don't understand its appeal as a cult film and for all intents as purposes, it should just disappear back into the dark waters.
Here is a more positive review from Rock Shock Pop: http://www.rockshockpop.com/forums/c...67-Shock-Waves

Yeah, that was a terrible review.

Cheap I can readily see. But I refuse to accept any movie with Peter Cushing being labeled 'uninteresting' or 'entirely too forgettable'.

Someone needs to grovel for forgiveness at the master's grave.

If that guy found Shock Waves uninteresting I wonder what he DOES find interesting. Probably not any old school horror film. Who's reviewing these movies anyway, 20 year olds? Probably people who think Twilight is the best thing that ever happened to horror. Stick to the picture quality and extras, let US be the judge of the films themselves.

The 2.5 star scores for the audio and video on the DVD Talk review seem a little misleading. Other than saying, "...this Blu-Ray transfer is actually quite impressive, which is very, very faint praise," the reviewer really doesn't comment on the transfer itself, just the problems inherent with the remaining source elements used for the transfer and his own personal distaste with the film.

I guess that means this is a great transfer of the best remaining elements.

I agree here...this guy probably had his head up his ass while watching it. It's the cheaply made horror films that usually turn out to be the most effective. NOTLD '68 and Halloween '78 come to mind

Yeah, that particular DVDTalk reviewer usually has his head up his anal cavity. I learned to skip his reviews months ago. He claims he has two degrees in "screenwriting" but his misuse of commas and periods and other assorted grammatical mistakes makes me wonder what rules of writing (or proofreading) he learned.
