MST3K Rewatch Week 76 - Devil Fish

Eventually getting around to this again. ;p  I'd explain the delay, but who cares

I'd forgotten ALL about this movie.  But oh man, I kinda loved it.  The jokes were fast and furious this time around, and they had a lot of runners they could, er, run with.  The alcoholic seaman alone!

In short, this movie is about a fish attacking boats, people hunting it down...probably made in the height of post-Jaws frenzy.  But the big thing here is...the creature is part shark...and part octop...Wait.

Part shark, part octopus, created by a lab in secret.

HOLY SHIT IT'S THE ORIGINAL SHARKTOPUS!!

"Just because you CAN edit, doesn't mean you SHOULD."  So, so true.  And this movie is a great example of it.  They never stay on a shot for long, and so loved showing just random shit for two seconds ti break things up.  The editing style is...schizophrenic at best.

A highlight of the MST3K rewatch, IMO.
