The instant cult classic Sharktopus is coming home to Blu-ray and DVD on March 15th. Reaching legendary status the moment it aired on the Syfy Network, this mutated monster is half-shark, half-octopus, and all stomach. Legendary producer Roger Corman has provided an audio commentary on the release, and we have an exclusive clip from this great chat session. Check out a scene from Sharktopus below with thoughts from Roger Corman.
He was featured in Entertainment Weekly. He was responsible for the highest rated Syfy Channel creature-feature to premiere in September. Whether in print, or the web, merely saying his name out loud inspired terror and fear. Forget Jaws, here comes... Sharktopus Produced by Roger Corman (2009 Honorary Oscar-winner) and Julie Corman, Sharktopus makes its DVD and Blu-ray debut on March 15, 2011 from Anchor Bay Entertainment. Starring Oscar-nominee Eric Roberts (The Expendables, The Dark Knight), Sharktopus has already captivated the nation, as more than 2.5 million viewers witnessed last September.
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 -- bikini babes, 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 Roger Corman himself.
