Attention B-Movie lovers. Roger Corman has a cameo in Sharktopus. I was unaware. I now must watch with great care. Anyone already seen this? I missed the SyFy channel premiere. Is it worth picking up?
Pressy releasy stuff:
Here’s a new Roger & Julie Corman commentary (and cameo) clip from Anchor Bay’s upcoming March 15th DVD and Blu-ray release of the Syfy smash hit creature feature SHARKTOPUS.
An eight-tentacled nightmare hybrid of shark and octopus, “S-11” was created by genetic scientist Nathan Sands (Eric Roberts) as the U.S. Navy’s next super-weapon. But when its control implants are damaged during a training experiment off the Mexican coast, the beast escapes to Puerto Vallarta to sample the local fare — bikinibabes, jet-skiers, and spring-breakers. With the ocean terror now out of control and seemingly invincible, a ragtag group – comprised of a hotshot mercenary, an investigative reporter, and Sand’s biomechanical engineer daughter – have come together to stop the unholy beast from turning a seaside tourist resort into the ultimate human buffet.
But it won’t be easy: it possesses problem-solving intelligence, attacks without mercy or warning – it even has the ability to walk on land. Not to mention a decided affinity to snack on bungee jumpers… Kerem Bursin and Sara Malakul Lane co-star, with a hilarious cameo by Corman himself.
