It’s Friday and if you’re like me you couldn’t get to that midnight showing of Inception, so you’re sitting around twiddling your…
thumbs…and you need a distraction until the day passes by and you can plop your ass in a noisy, dirty, overcrowded, overexcited theater to watch your own mind get frakked. What to do, what to do? I’ll tell you what to do — watch this trailer again and again and again. Godtopus’s chromosomally damaged angry cousin is in town and he’s pissed. While I can’t condone the music, I can certainly give a big tentacle (or two) up for this AWESOME trailer. (Yes, I said awesome, against all reason and I have no explanation whatsoever.)
It seems the Navy tracked down Eric Roberts to create a killing machine and what else would come to his mind but a vicious hybrid of shark and octopus? A creature that doesn’t even need to wait for the victim to hit the water - it can drag a victim from the beach. Sharktopus jumps, he snares with his tentacles and shreds with his teeth…he growls! I love him. And here he is in all his angry, growling glory, Sharktopus!
Thank you Roger Corman.
