There are very few things in this world that get me excited: anything free (especially food), tickets to a Jacksonville Jaguars football game (keep the hate to yourself), finding money in my pocket while doing laundry and anytime the SyFy Channel shows a new original movie.

At the beginning of this year, SyFy announced they would be working with B-movie directing legend Roger Corman to bring us the most ferocious animal ever known to man – Sharktopus!

Well, the Sharktopus monster looks as awesome as it sounded and can best be described as “The Mullet of the Sea” – business in the front and a party in the back.

SyFy has sent us three promo clips for Sharktopus and they are as tongue-in-cheek as the name implies. I think my favorite may be the Torpoodle. Watch them below and enjoy:

– Shark + Octopus –

– Sporkupine –

– Torpoodle –

Roger Corman has given the world classic B-movies like Little Shop of Horrors, The Wasp Woman, Pit and the Pendulum and of course, the ill-fated ’90s Fantastic Four movie. For Sharktopus, however, Corman served as producer while Declan O’Brien (Wrong Turn 3) sat in the director’s chair.

Sharktopus stars Eric Roberts (The Expendables, Best of the Best), Ralph Garman (Eagle Eye), Sara Malakul Lane (Belly of the Beast) and Kerem Bursin. Roberts plays a research scientist who, with his talented daughter, develops a secret military weapon – a hybrid shark/octopus that can be controlled by electrical implants. But when the controls break down, the monster goes on a killing rampage along the resort beaches of Mexico.

Sharktopus - "The Mullet of the Sea"

Sharktopus isn’t going to be a breakthrough in cinematic achievements but I have no doubt that it’s going to be a whole lot of fun. What else would you expect from a movie that uses the words Vanpanzee and Stingrake in its advertising?

Sharktopus munches, chomps, slinks and grabs its way on to the SyFy Channel September 25th, 2010 at 9/10 Central.

  1. 2 Thumbs up!

  2. If only Syfy’s movies were as good their titles. I will be watching. Guilty pleasures every Saturday.

  3. Where can I get a T-shirt that has Sharktopus “The Mullet of the Sea” on it… that would be great! :)

  4. I can’t wait for this movie. It’s going to be terrible, but that’s half the fun!

  5. So potentially craptastic that you cannot miss it. :)

  6. MST 3000 fodder all the way! :-)

    • Well, this is a remake of “Devil Fish” after all, so it’s only fitting they make a Rifftrack for it.

  7. I definitely have to check this out. It looks so bad it’s gotta be good!

  8. 0:05 on the third one – is that an additional octopus mouth/beak in its belly??

    • Yeah I think it is. A belly-beak as it were :()

      • Yep.. I’d say it’s a belly beak and just when I though this movie was going to be good…well I guess if you’re going for cheese go all the way.

  9. ok those clips were basically the exact same

  10. @The Big Dentis
    I think so… my god this looks so bad it’ll be good.

  11. Couldn’t happen…whhaaat? They’re not breading them you know it was made in a lab and I am sure the movie will explain everything in scientific detail. Did you know they are splicing fish jeans with tomatoes now? It’s so they will have more omegas…no joke! So ya the Sharktopus could total happen, I think that torpoodle pups would be pretty cute too.. 😛

  12. Oh my, I’m having a hard time typing, I’ve been laughing so much the tears are blurring the screen.

    That’s so funny.


  13. Just when you thought Frankenfish was too much…

    I almost HAVE to see this movie for the title alone.

  14. I only watch a couple things on SyFy anymore, but don’t they ever… you know, play classic sci-fi films? I mean, couldn’t we have an up-all-night 50’s sci-fi schlock block of movies? What happened to showing sci-fi? Is this why they changed the logo and name. Probably so. Damn.

    • I agree, there are some exceptionally good sci/fi films from the 50’s worthy of an all-nighter.

      Now there’s a topic for conversation, what do you think are the best sci/fi films of the 50’s?

      My Top 5: (10 is a bit hard)

      1: War of The Worlds
      2: The Day The Earth Stood Still
      3: Forbidden Planet
      4: The Fly
      5: Them!

      • Nice one, Pedrosurus – Forbidden Planet’s my number 1 there. Add Invasion Of The Body Snatchers, The Incredible Shrinking Man, This Island Earth, Destination Moon, Conquest Of Space, Invaders From Mars, The Thing From Another World, It Came From Outer Space, Earth Vs The Flying Saucers, Rocketship X-M, When Worlds Collide, The Quatermass Xperiment and Quatermass 2 (aka The Creeping Unknown and The Enemy Within) and you’ve got a whole weekender!

        Rounded off with Plan 9 From Outer Space, naturally…

        • PedrosAurus, sorry.
