Half-Shark. Half-Octopus. All Terror.

 

I’m a huge fan of The X-Files. After watching every episode there is from that show I’ve come to the conclusion that the american government have a lot of evil plans that are hidden from the public. So I have no problem buying the concept of the american government making a «secret weapon» by mutating a shark and octopus into a SHARKTOPUS.

And of course the experiment goes wrong and the S-11 (project name for the sharktopus, makes you wonder what happened to S-1 – S-10?) is free to terrorize beaches everywhere. And where do you go if you want to eat human flesh? Mexico of course!

This is a Syfy movie produced by b-movie master Roger Corman, starring Eric Roberts and a bunch of hot chicks. A LOT of chicks actually and most get a minute or two of screen time before they become food for our beloved seapet. The body count is quite high in this movie and some of them are fun and inventive. Eric Roberts is also fun to watch and look out for a cameo of Corman aswell. The sharktopus looks great considering what you would expect from a movie like this. And I can’t brag and say that I have seen a real sharktopus so I’m gonna have faith in that this was as close as a real one would be.
