The legendary Roger Corman’s, 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 2.5M viewers witnessed last September.
An eight-tentacled nightmare hybrid of shark and octopus, “S-11” was created by genetic scientist Nathan Sands (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 ragtaggroup – 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 Corman himself.
In addition to capturing the hearts and minds of millions of viewers, Sharktopus gripped critics with its outrageous fusion of horror and humor.
