Legendary schlock producer Roger Corman returns to the genre that he pioneered (and makes a hilariously chintzy cameo appearance, to boot) in this sensitive character study of a misbegotten shark/octopus hybrid that escapes the control of its navy handlers and begins to snork down surfers off the coast of Mexico. For fans of this sort of thing, all of the base elements of a superior creature feature are present, including cold-blooded scientists, beefy soldiers of fortune, and acres upon acres of postage-stamp-size swimwear. Unfortunately, while star Eric Roberts delivers a gloriously straight-faced performance as the creator of said majestic killing machine, much of the supporting cast indulges in the sort of broad winking at the camera that marks too many of the modern exploitation movies. Still, a concept this goofy won't go down without a mighty fight, and the sight of the titular character casually picking off bungee jumpers and crawling up on land (sure, why not?) to harass unsuspecting musicians is pretty irresistible. If, in the final accounting, the movie is only half as enjoyable to watch as the title is to say, that's still an awful lot of fun. --Andrew Wright

Product Description

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. Kerem Bursin and Sara Malakul Lane co-star with a hilarious cameo by legendary producer Roger Corman in the unforgettable Syfy Original Movie about the 8-tentacled eating machine called SHARKTOPUS!

Format:DVD
Just looking at the movie poster, I knew this film was supposed to be bad, and I knew I had to see it. Thankfully a friend of mine had recorded it when it aired on SyFy, so I am writing this review based on the videotape I am currently watching. Yes, a videotape. You know those things that you use to stick inside a VCR to watch or record a movie before they made DVDs. I know a few of you might still might might know what these antiques are. Anyways, as a note to those who gave this film 1 star, didn't you know this was a parody?

This should have become apparent to anyone within the first 15 minutes of the film when Roger Cormen (yes he is making an appearance in the film) watches a young woman using a metal detector on the beach. The young woman finds a piece of gold, and is quickly attacked by the tentacles of the Sharktopus and eaten. After the young woman is eaten, Roger Corman, walks down to the waters edge and picks up the gold piece the woman has dropped during the attack and walks away with the gold. At no part in this scene does Corman appear to be frightened of what has just transpired in front of him, and even smiles at the camera. So in a sense this film is supposed to be a comedy. It just depends on how you take it.

So basically, if you liked the remake of Piranha, you will probably like this movie as well. It has plenty of funny outrageous gags, stupid lines, bikinis, sand, and almost everything that made Piranha great (except no nudity.)

Eric Roberts (brother of Julia Roberts) deserves an academy award for his role in this film. After all he was the only person in it that could actually act, and besides he has never won one.

Even the editor deserves some kind of award for quickly hiding a machine gun.

3.0 out of 5 stars Jump the Squark September 25, 2010
If you're not a fan of bad horror movies, Sharktopus is likely the stupidest thing you've ever seen. To wit, it's a half-shark, half-octopus genetically engineered killer who spends the entire movie eating hot chicks in bikinis. It doesn't get much dumber than this.

But if you ARE a fan of bad horror movies, Sharktopus is a sort of horror movie nirvana, combining every monster shark movie since Jaws and every giant squid movie since...well there really haven't been any giant squid movies that match the appeal of Jaws. If there was, Sharktopus would rip that off too.

Sharktopus is an apex moment in Syfy's history, when fans of the monster movies the channel is known for suddenly became rabid advocates, eagerly awaiting the next monster's debut. Sharktopus has caused quite a buzz amongst this community, who eagerly discusses every sneak preview of Sharktopus in action: Sharktopus eating a bungie-jumper, Sharktopus eating a yoga instructor, Sharktopus eating a jet skier. All in a day's work for a half-shark, half-opus carnivorous beast genetically engineered to eat drug smugglers.

Oh, right, the plot. Basically, a defense contractor known as Blue Water created a monster known as S-11 (not Sharktopus, of COURSE). When a boat's propeller accidentally slices off the thing's control collar, Sharktopus is free to snatch people from the beach from incredibly shallow water. Or, failing that, it just uses its tentacles to climb right up onto the surface and follow its prey there.

And its prey is mostly hot chicks. The amount of T&A in Sharktopus may astonish even horror movie fans; while any movie featuring beaches inevitably features women in bikinis as well, the camera follows them everywhere with a point of view I like to call the ButtCam (tm).

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharktopus - a Classic for the Ages September 26, 2010
I cannot allow a bad review of Sharktopus to go unpunished, er, well, uncommented upon.

To every true cinephile, the three greatest movies ever made are 1) The Ten Commandments, 2) Ben Hur and 3) Sharktopus.

OK, Ten Commandments, Ben Hur, Sharktopus and Mega Pirahna.

Wait, that's four. OK, Ben Hur, Sharktopus and Mega Piranha.

And Komodo vs Cobra. When the Komodo ate the blond chick . . . Man!

And Aztec Rex. When the Rex ate that brunette chick . . . Man!

Wait, that's four. No. How many is that?

OK, Sharktopus, Mega Piranha, Komodo vs Cobra and Aztec Rex.

And Malibu Shark Attack. Yeah! And Supergator. He ate everybody!

How many is that?

OK, the three greatest movies ever made are Sharktopus, Mega Piranha, Komodo vs Cobra, Aztec Rex, Malibu Shark Attack and Supergator.

Now let's not have any more bad reviews.

Judged in the same manner as Hollywood films meant to elicit emotion and portray realism with incredibly complex FX, this film is a 1 star. On entertainment value, however, Sharktopus is the Pangaea of campy sci-fi. With the clever and misleading title (it's actually probably a shark/squid hybrid), and the incontrovertible starpower of Eric Roberts, this is guaranteed MST3K greatness.

The plot, and I'm using the word loosely, is a genetically engineered shark/octopus hybrid (a.k.a. S-11) created by the Blue Water corporation, a nefarious government contractor, for the U.S. Navy to chase and kill coastal gun runners (ignore that this is typically the U.S. Coast Guard's responsibility). When the control mechanism designed by father & daughter marine biologists fails, Sharktopus is ready to ravage the world. It's up to the doctors and a war vet named Andy Flynn to stop the deadly beast. But Sharktopus has a few plans of its own before the end.

I know what you're thinking: "Stay away from the water." Right? Well, good luck with that, because Sharktopus can freaking walk on land! Who cares that it has shark gills, and the hybrid shouldn't conceivably live outside of water. Tell that to the bikini-clad cannon fodder or the inevitable moron filming the monster mere moments before being devoured - all caught on film, of course. So now what? Run and stay out of its reach? Nice try, shark treat! This thing moves like a ninja and can stab people with the ends of its tentacles that are somehow sharpened like knives at the end despite that not being a naturally occurring phenomenon. Aside from that, the plan is flawed because it's readily apparent, because it happened in the film, after watching this cinematic treat that Sharktopus can shrink and grow at will.

Roger Corman strikes back! This is a typical Corman film. Ok special effects (though I think they improved them in this issue). The movie even had a couple of sub plots.
