THE CHARACTERS

Nathan Sands (Eric Roberts): CEO of a biotech company that developed a killer sea-monster for the US Navy. What could go wrong?
Andy Flynn (Kerem Bursin): Mercenary ex-commando hired to capture the beast when it goes off the leash.
Nicole Sands (Sara Malakul Lane): Nathan's daughter who also works at the biotech firm.
Stacy Everheart (Liv Boughn): Intrepid reporter!
Bones (Héctor Jiménez): Intrepid reporter's cameraman.
Captain Jack (Ralph Garman): Dumbass "Pirate Radio" host.

LESSONS LEARNED

A good news story doesn't require names or interviews, just exclusive footage of a monster being shot to hell.
It's a good idea to drink a great, big, enormous scotch in front of the guy you report to.
If a piece of shrapnel doesn't kill you, keep it.
Kill switches on hybrid monsters should be failsafe.
Octopi are territorial.
Artificially making your hybrid shark-octopus monster more aggressive is probably overkill.
Tentacles can function as spears.
Destruct codes should be easy to guess.

NOTABLE QUOTES

Nathan: "It'll feed along the coast a few days, then move on."

Captain Jack: "Attention all hands. This is your captain speaking. We're getting more reports of this half shark, half octopus creature that's terrorizing the coast, but please don't panic. There is a way we can stop this thing. Virgin sacrifices."

Nathan: "Oh, don't embarrass the US Navy!"

THE PLOT

Nathan Sands is a biotech contractor who has developed a killer shark-octopus hybrid monster for the US Navy.

  • Do they test it in an enclosed tank? Of course not! They test it in the open ocean.
  • Do they test it in a remote area? Of course not! They test it near a crowded resort town.

It seems to work okay at first, but then a risky close pass with a speed boat leads to a collision that disables the monster's command-and-control device. Now the sharktopus is loose and eager to kill!
Nathan hires mercenary Andy to recapture the monster, and sends his daughter Nicole to help him track it.

Tentacle horror and toothy death ensues as the monster munches its way through hapless tourists and incompetent sidekicks.

Andy and Nicole eventually agree to scrub the whole capture plan and just kill the damned thing, much to Daddy’s displeasure, but he stops arguing when he is predictably eaten by his own creation. Nicole eventually figures out a way to trigger the self-destruct device still embedded in the monsters body, and Andy is able to dispose of the beast and get the girl.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
