Movie Info

A scientific expedition to a remote Mexican fishing community discovers unhealthy amounts of radiation in the local waters. They also find a small mutant octopus with nearly-human eyes that can crawl on land and make mewling sounds like a baby. In order to receive further funding for their project, Dr. Rick Torres travels back to the States to make a deal with circus owner Johnny Caruso, who is interested in the bizarre mutation as a carny act. They return to the camp to discover that their crew has been slaughtered by someone (or something) and the octopus specimen is missing. A young man from the village says that a local legend about a creature said to be half man and half sea serpent is true, and offers to take the scientists to the lake where it is purported to live. What they find is a seven foot tall walking octopus with amazing strength and a lust for killing, and soon the expedition realizes that the monster is now hunting them.

Audience Reviews for Octaman


Embarrassment for the folks listed in the credits (except for maybe Rick Baker, because, though kinda goofy, the monster suit is of nifty design), entertainment for the rest of us. A little draggy but the numerous golden nuggets of incompetence scattered throughout make it worth a sit-through

Another man-running-around-in-a-rubber-monster-suit flick. Angeli committed suicide after making this one.

Cheesiest of the cheesy. Some of the worst acting I've encountered. The story didn't have enough structure.
