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.
