A group of American tourists regret taking the economy tour when they end up in a creepy island resort with lots of pushy Germans who return from a swim with more on their minds than hogging the sun beds.

Verdict: By the far the best of the supernatural underwater Nazi zombie movies. Probably influenced ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ and ‘Hellboy’, to mention just a few of several possible imitators. Very atmospheric with lots of haunting, dream-like images. The underwater photography is excellent. Consistently creepy and original without relying on gore – of which there is very little. The scenes were the Nazi zombies rise from the sea are very effective. A fascinating oddity that sticks in the mind.
