This movie has got nothing that hasn't been seen before. For more tantilizing tentacled terror, check out, IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA, TENTACLES, PETER BENCHLEY'S THE BEAST, AND OCTAMAN????

this movie was soooo bad that we took turns watching it.  and were both bored to the point of drinking.  we just rented "king cobra" which was also released by trimark.  it was, if humanly possible, worse than octopus.  we actually fast fowarded through scenes where there was no dialogue.

Isn't CGI wonderful? Before CGI, the worst octopus, we lovers of B-movies had, was the rubberly one in Ed Wood's "Bride of the Monster." Now, we have one that is even more fake looking. Enjoy!

  I was rooting for the octopus to get the wuss "hero".  I'm in the Army, Military Intelligence Corps (yes, I know, contradiction in terms), and if I had someone like Roy under my command I would've shot him during the shootout with the terrorists and blame the terrorists!
  I agree with Andrew, shoot Casper so he can't get out of the car, get some marshmallows, and sing campfire songs.  I still can't believe I sat through this entire movie without hitting fast forward on my VCR remote.
  What gets me about these movies are how they protray the military, especially the officers, as a bunch of idiots.  If we were really that stupid we would've still been a British Colony that fell to the Krauts and Japanese.  The officers in this movie would fit the bullets from British Officer Fitness Reports I found on the "Car Talk" website:
"His men would follow him anywhere, but only out of curiosity."
"This officer should go far--and the sooner he starts, the better."
"I would not breed from this officer."
"This officer reminds me very much of a gyroscope:
always spinning around at a frantic pace, but not really going anywhere."
"Since my last report he has reached rock bottom, and has started to dig."
..and the best for the last...
"This man is depriving a village somewhere of an idiot."

Another bad killer animal Sci-Fi Channel film. Others dependant on CGI like this one include Sabretooth (BAD), Rats (BAD), Mosquitos(with Gunnar Hansen, still REALLY BAD, with 50's like monsters), Shark Attack (one of THE worst films I have ever seen, terrible special FX, definetley shot on a budget of around 100 bucks) and most recently, Snakehead Terror (read about it in Fangoria, very disappointing that such a good magazine would promote such a bad film). Really, these killer animal Sci-Fis have GOT to stop.

I just saw this on SciFi over the weekend, but I had to stop after five minutes for almost the same reasons as Andrew.  I tried again near the end when the commander says their below safe depth, but I just couldn't watch.

I was going to say that this movie wasn't <i>that</i> bad, but then I realized that I spent most of it's running time folding origami instead of paying attention to what was going on.

I have this movie for DVD. It's a movie about a big monster from ocean and a terrorist. This film is about good man vz bad man. It's bad.

I thought that the opening sequence with the bomb in the purse was great and that Casper made a great villan. However, Roy was just stupid, since he always fell for Casper's persuasions not to kill him. The ending was HILARIOUS! I mean, two people blow up inside a building and a guy is blown to bits from the bomb on the ground beside him in the beginning, but the mini-sub explodes at the end and Roy LIVES?! That is such a HUGE mistake and they still realeased the movie without editing that scene! HA!

This is one of my all time favorite 'bad movie nights' movies! Having spent time on subs back in my hmmm..younger days....I was amazed at the roominess of the subs, and the heighth and width of the hatch and door openings, and the plethora of standard bulbs, the windows in the watertight compartments...and the real frosting on the cake is that if the cap'n messes this mission he did the last one????...he'll never be a sub cap'n again???? But's all in good fun...right? The ever changing size of the octupii...sometimes it's sub sized...other times it huge....must be the water retention and 'that time of the month'...who knows. Did anyone notice that the markings on the drum seem to change...sometimes it was in russian...then later its in english?...and the idea of such a sweet young thang playing strip poker on a sub...on a has tobe hooper written all over it...but it is a guaranteed bad movie night' winner...and in this neck of the woods...the losers have to buy the beer and snacks for the next movie!...Love this thing!

Whlst I agree, this monster has been cliched more than enough times, I will say I found using a wuss as the hero was kinda original.

Well at least in IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA the giant octapus looks scary not rediclous like it dose here and can anyone recall a movie call TENTICALS? and there was a episode of the 60s sci fi series VOYAGE TO THE BOOTTOM OF THE SEA titled VILLAGE OF GUILT where some mad scientists in NORWAY has created a giant octopus that attacks and devours three fishermen celebrating the creature eventuialy devours its creator before being destroyed
