My first Forbidden Thrills movie nite of 2011 at Forbidden Island Tiki Lounge in Alameda is a double bill to drown for: the surreal Japanese sci-fi classic TERROR BENEATH THE SEA (1966) features pre-stardom action icon Sonny Chiba vs. an army of mutant fish men, with a cool, eerie electronic score and colorful visuals that makes it feel and look like a cross between Marine Boy and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. PLUS! Horror legend Peter Cushing revives an army of Nazi zombies to attack a bunch of neurotics on a remote island in the greatest underwater Nazi zombie flick of all time, SHOCK WAVES (1977), co-starring fellow horror legend John Caradine and some hot babes in bikinis. With prizes, free popcorn and surprise short subjects. Monday, January 24, 7:30. Be there. Aloha.
