I’m not particularly a fan of the b-movie-esque attempts by Syfy of late. They look cheap and nasty and don’t have any of the qualities true b-movies had from years back. I don’t know, maybe it’s an age thing. Anyhoo, the latest Roger Corman produced hybrid fest is ‘Sharktopus’. It hit our TV screens a little while back and now its hitting DVD and Blu-Ray on 15 March 2011. Eric Roberts (‘The Dark Knight’, ‘The Expendables’), Héctor Jiménez, Ralph Garman, Sara Malakul Lane, American beauty queen Shandi Finnessey (below), Brent Huff, Roxana Ortega and Kerem Bursin all star. You can check out the synopsis and artwork below.
“It is known as S-11, a diabolical hybrid of shark and octopus created by genetic scientist Nathan Sands (Oscar®-nominee Eric Roberts of THE EXPENDABLES and THE DARK KNIGHT) as the U.S. Navy’s next super-weapon. But when its control implants are damaged during a training experiment, the beast escapes to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for a taste of sun, sand, bikini babes, jet-skiers, spring breakers and beyond. Now a hotshot mercenary, an investigative reporter, and Sand’s biomechanical engineer daughter must stop a creature like none ever witnessed before: It has superior intelligence. It attacks without warning. And it likes to snack on bungee jumpers.”
Catch ‘Sharktopus’ on DVD and Blu-Ray on 15 March 2011.
