Sharktopus Trailer to Grab You

The trailer for the latest Syfy original film featuring a giant mutant something or other, Sharktopus, has made a splash online, and we have ever drippy second of it for you.

So what's it all about? Hold on to your asses, folks! We've got a live one here!

"The U.S. Navy has commissioned a group called Blue Water to genetically engineer a half-shark, half-octopus to help combat Somali pirate ships. Then things go wrong."

Makes perfect sense, doesn't it? That's the point, as producer Roger Corman explains.

"It's fairly difficult to believe, but we only ask the audience to accept this one thing," he said. "After that, we take great care that everything else is logical from then on and is something that could happen."

Sharktopus is directed by Wrong Turn 3's Declan O'Brien and stars Eric Roberts. Look for a premiere date soon.

A few thoughts:

1 - Computer generated monsters are not fun. EVER.

2 - I'm bored now, SyFy. There's nothing wrong with an entertaining b-movie but you guys aren't even trying. I can't watch these things because they are so formulaic and uninspired they bore me to tears. Even the money shots are poorly computer generated creatures with 0 personality. If you're not spending much on this stuff, why not take a risk and let your writers and directors take some chances. The odds are you'll generate a cult hit and maybe even a franchise people will remember fondly for decades.

3 - SyFy (what an asinine name) could stop wasting money on these craptastic creature features and just bring back Farscape.
