TRAILER - TENTACLES (1977)
No, this isn't the trailer for a new Charlie Sheen documentary, it's the preview for yet another JAWS ripoff about a giant octopus and its bad habit of sucking the bone marrow out of a number of bathers at a resort called Ocean Beach. Poor direction, cheap special effects and a weak plot highlight this Italian production. The final battle between the octopus and some killer whales goes nowhere. And your guess is as good as mine as to how such high calibre actors like John Huston, Shelly Winters, Bo Hopkins and Henry Fonda ended up in this one.
It's Turning the Beach ... Into a Buffet!
