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.
With Piranha and Humanoids from the Deep getting all the love lately in the news, we'd be remiss if we did not mention two other Corman cult classics that are poised to make their special edition double-feature DVD debut from Shout! Factory.

This past weekend saw the premiere of the Roger Corman-produced Dinoshark (review here) on Syfy. Today we get the trailer for another future Syfy flick pitting two previous Roger Corman reptilian behemoths in mortal combat. Feast your eyes upon the stupendous chomp-filled trailer for Jim Wynorski's Dinocroc vs. Supergator.

Since news broke that recent honorary Oscar winner Roger Corman and Syfy were teaming up to gift the world with a motion picture about a half-shark/half-octopus oceanic killing machine gone wild, Sharktopus-mania has engulfed the World Wide Web. Now comes news that a former Oscar nominee has signed on to star.
During the Oscars ten movies were nominated for best picture, and none of them strikes me as a motion picture that will stand the test of time and be remembered as anything truly great. Is it too late for a write-in vote to retroactively award this year's Best Picture Oscar to The Dark Knight or Gran Torino or even go all the way back and give either Jaws, Star Wars, or Raiders of the Lost Ark the high honor they richly deserved? Screw the Oscars, I say. Give me Dinoshark!
Want to know what the titular monster of Roger Corman's Dinoshark looks like? Want to know how and why a shark gets genetically crossed with an octopus in Corman's forthcoming Sharktopus? Don't deny it. You know you do. Just read on.
Just yesterday you heard the news that legendary b-movie maestro Roger Corman is going to produce Sharktopus. But before that shark/octopus hybrid comes into fruition, there's the matter of Dinoshark, the prehistoric monster shark flick he produced. A premiere date is finally set, and I am sure you will be shocked to know Syfy is where you can see it.
In a move that no doubt has our own Foywonder writhing with anticipation, word came down on Twitter (a strangely viable source of news) today letting fans know that Roger Corman's long rumored monster movie Sharktopus is that much closer to becoming a reality.
Sometimes a bun just needs a bit more time in the oven, ya know? Dread Central has learned today that Shout! Factory's upcoming (and we're sure to be stellar) DVD and Blu-ray release of the Roger Corman classic Piranha has been pushed back until August.
