The wikipedia entry on Exploitation cinema is a bit hit and miss. Some films are nicely representative of their exploitation…
Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus
Winner... Eats... All!
The California coast is terrorized by two enormous prehistoric sea creatures as they battle each other for supremacy of the sea.
Anyone else think this was a porno?
Anyone else actually wish it was one?
Yeah. Thought so.
Oh very dear.
This film is like watching your grandparents entering a swinging club with John Merrick. This should have never been made and the thought that anyone would watch or make this and think it is even half decent boggles my mind.
Stay away from this film.
Who wants shark skin boots?
i have a thing for terrible movies. this is perhaps the most terrible movie.
From the prestigious film studio "The Asylum," comes an awe-inspiring and breathtaking film titled "Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus." The movies revolves around two prehistoric sea monsters that are now back in action after many years of being frozen in combat. Although that might sound a bit far-fetched on paper, the movie does a phenomenal job making it believable thanks to the great attention to detail given by legendary director Ace Hannah.
The performances here are lively and energetic, and are displayed with great charisma. Vic Chao gives the performance of his life, and the chemistry between him and Deborah Gibson really make the movie work. There is a controversial sex scene between the two, but in my eyes, the…
I know what went on while making this one! They thought they had a great romantic comedy on their hands but it failed so they've added Mega Shark and Giant Octopus. It didn't help a bit. Sharks can't save everything :(
It was my own fault, I was just curious. I'm not anymore. However bad you might think this could be, it's a thousand times worse. trust me.
No.. Just no! Don't watch it!
In reality, the octopus would instantly break the shark's spine the first time they met. Even if the shark miraculously survived the the first battle, the octopus' tentacle would have grown back by the time they met again.
'80s pop queen Debbie Gibson is a crusading oceanographer helping the U.S. Navy rid the seas of two poorly CGI'd mutations.
This was my first Asylum film and it was so hilariously bad that I became an instant fan.
Contains a few moments over over-the-top badness, but over-all just dumb and unwatchable. Probably needs to be watched with like-minded individuals and a few drinks.
Why wasn't this nominated a billion times? I'm shocked. Just floored.
As someone who finds a lot of Asylum's movies pretty hilarious, this was very disappointing. A real snooze fest.
I won the dvd of this at a horror convention. I feel ashamed, so so ashamed.
It's the Asylum doing what it does best: terrible movies. I wouldn't recommend this for a bad movie night as the badness is just too manufactured and not as fun as a result.
An adaptation of Shakespeare's final play, co-written by Charles Dickens and Charlie Kaufman, Mega Shark Vs Giant Octopus finally gets its big screen adaptation. Unfortunately Kenneth Brannagh was unavailable due to schedule conflicts with Hamlet 2, but with Bruce Willis, Al Pacino, Robert Duvall and Samuel L Jackson on the bill, this more than makes up for it.
Naturally the film is so epic it makes The Godfather look like two crack addicts fumbling over a camera phone inside a retard asylum. The film is tinged with a plethora of cutting edge HD special effects that recall the first time you saw Jurassic Park or Plan 9 From Outer Space, surely making modern day blockbusters like Transformers look like a…
This horrible piece of shit is best enjoyed drunk or high :D
