Synopsis: This is one of those awful movies that you can enjoy with a loved one simply by laughing at it. It involves a giant radioactive octopus, a submarine, and an unbearable love story.
Watching it right now with the Big Calamari, who -- in response to some dialogue about having to launch an investigation immediately -- commented, "Yeah, they've gotta get kraken." Get it? Crackin'? Kraken?

All tomatoes should be aimed directly at Richard, per favore....

:tomato: :arrow: :bonk:
What a hoot! I especially loved OCTOPUS 2, when the Giant Radioactive Octopus would get angry and make these unbelievably deep glug-glug noises -- like someone playing a 45 rpm record of James Earl Jones gargling, at 33 rpm. Truly a classic of cinematic awfulness.... :octopus:
