Sharktopus on DVD and Blu-ray March 15, 2011


He was featured in Entertainment Weekly. He was responsible for the highest rated Syfy Channel creature-feature to premiere in September. Whether in print, or the web, merely saying his name out loud inspired terror and fear. Forget Jaws, here comes...SHARKTOPUS!

Produced by Roger (2009 Honorary Oscar-winner) and Julie Corman, 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. SRP is $19.98 for the DVD, and $24.99 for the Blu-ray™, with pre-book on February 16th.

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 ragtag group – 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. Examiner.com called it “Awesome! An apex moment in Syfy’s history,” while Horrornews.net declared the film “full of kickassitude!”

Reelz Channel said the film “…has all the blood and bikinis you've come to expect from the Roger Corman Film Factory,” and Joe Crowe from RevolutionSF.com noted “Sharktopus finally gets it right. That’s how a creature feature should be done.”
