Bloody Tentacle Terror on Display in First Sharktopus Image

It's not often you see an image of a scantily clad female covered in a bodily fluid being menaced by a large purple-ish tentacle and it turns out to not be hentai related. But that's what you'll see in all its bloody glory in this first official image from Roger Corman's next creature feature Sharktopus.

For those in need of a reminder, Roger Corman is the executive producer of this forthcoming Syfy monster movie starring Eric Roberts as a research scientist responsible for genetically engineering a voracious shark/octopus hybrid designed as a top secret military weapon to be used again Somali pirates and such. When the electrical implants that control this aquatic abomination against the Lord fail, the Sharktopus goes berserk and heads for Mexican resort waters for a little surf and turf.

Syfy's SCI FI Wire has posted the first image that gives us a hint of what we can expect when the hungry Sharktopus sets its sights on an unfortunate senorita.

Oh my god, haha. How did I not know about this? I kept joking around that I was waiting for Syfy to come out with a "Really Mega Ginormous Octoshark" movie...and now they basically made one. Classic. Syfy has no shame. I love it.

It's always the monster octupi who have the most colorful tentacles.
