Stream Warriors :: Kinderpal Mickster on Shock Waves & Hide and Creep!

March 27th, 2011 by kinderpal mickster · 8 Comments

UNK SEZ: Today’s episode of Stream Warriors is brought to you by the letter “Z” for zombie and is hosted by our favorite Kinderpal Mickster! Mickster‘s got a living-dead double feature for you currently available on Netflix streaming!


MICKSTER: Professor Von Whiskersen and I love the wide variety of movies offered through Netflix instant streaming. Therefore, when Unkle Lancifer asked me to host an installment of Stream Warriors, I jumped at the chance. The difficult part was deciding which movies to share. Ultimately, I decided to share two very different zombie movies. First up, Shock Waves (1977) is an atmospheric gem starring John Carradine as a crusty sea captain, Peter Cushing as a SS commander/hermit and a young Brooke Adams (Invasion of the Body Snatchers and The Dead Zone) as a chick in a bikini. It features oodles of Nazi zombies. These aren’t flesh-eating zombies (for Flesh-eating Nazi zombies see Dead Snow), but they are still eerie and deadly. Filmed in Florida at a deserted hotel with an otherworldly soundtrack, what the movie lacks in gore it makes up for in an ominous, unsettling atmosphere. Try this one and see if the watery Nazi zombies give you the willies too.


MICKSTER: Next, Hide and Creep (2004) is a Southern zombie comedy. It is ultra-low budget, which is quite evident from the not-so-special effects. However, I have a soft spot for this independent film because it was made in Alabama, just like me. If you aren’t from the South, you may not ‘get’ some of the Southern references. Things you should know: Southerners love Coke so much that they call all soft drinks (Sprite, Dr.Pepper, Pepsi, etc.) Coke, a man may value his car more than his woman, a father will teach his daughter how to use a gun, and the Iron Bowl (Alabama vs. Auburn) is more important than a zombie outbreak. If you are junk-sensitive, I will warn you that “Porky Pigging” occurs early in the film. I must admit that my favorite parts in the movie feature a video storeowner named Chuck. His passionate rant about the superiority of Coke over Pepsi is not to be missed! If you are a fan of zombies, low budgets, and/or Southerners, you should try this zomedy.

    Hey, Mickster, I spent most of the first 11 years of my life in Alabama. If my pets were on fire and the only thing I had to pour on them was a case of Pepsi… they’d just have to burn. It’s Coke or nothing. Guess I’m gonna have to check out Hide and Creep now.

    I used to watch “Shockwaves” back in the 80’s when USA’s “Up all Night” showed it on a regular basis. Pretty creepy zombies!

    I have not seen Shock Waves in years but that was a movie that I caught on TV several times as a kid. The abandoned hotel is almost as creepy as the zombies. Plus Brooke Adams! How can ya not love Brooke Adams?

    The best way to view Hide & Creep is to watch it while talking to Mickster on the phone! That way, you’re sure to understand all the Alabama-isms! That movie really made me miss the mom and pop videos stores!

    Thanks for the great pix Mickster!:)

    Thanks Unkle L! I enjoyed watching with you through the magic of Netflix. Even though I love Netflix, I do miss the mom and pop video stores too.

    @ Unkle Lancifer: Brooke Adams was the first topless female that I had seen in the movies (Invasion of the Body Snatchers 1978).

    She was mine too! I’m not kidding!

    Don’t even get me started on IOTBS! I love that movie like nobody’s business and yes I am the proud owner of the “Photo-Novel!”
