Beware SyFy's Sharktopus

Mankind was not meant to mess with the ways of nature nature. Mary Shelley taught us this almost two centuries ago with her novel "Frankenstein." Way more recently, Kate Gosselin's fertility doctor taught us this the hard way. And Meg Ryan's new face is a constant reminder of why we should not tinker with La Madre Natural.

Yet we do not listen. We've cloned sheep, made glowing rats, and even gave Mother Nature the finger by creating the Liger.

So it is with utmost sincerity that I ask you to watch SyFy's continuing film series so that we as a species will learn to admire and respect nature rather than attempt to dominate it. SyFy's so-called "creature features" are public service announcements, warning of the dangers of making a man-mosquito hybrid in Mansquito, of stitching people together head-to-butt in The Human Centipede, of ancient terrors that always happen to emerge around small towns in Dinoshark.

But they all pale in comparison to the latest threat that swims beneath the surface of the ocean. Behold the power of the Sharktopus!

... for serious?

Good gawd, it seems that the Shark and the Octopus from, well, Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus had a baby before offing each other in THAT Syfy movie.

If that's true, then OH MY GOD EWWW GET THE BRAIN BLEACH

all of you people are taking this WAAAAAAY too seriously. hahaha. It's a Roger Corman film. he makes B movies on purpose. Eric Roberts wouldn't be in this if it were serious. This personally looks like a fantastically stupid escape from the drudgery of summer TV. Sencond only to Wipeout. can't wait :)

This looks so utterly bad that I can't help but believe that SyFy is mocking itself. It appears to be a tribute to B movies. Was it just me or did anyone else see Bruce Campbell in this trailer? Maybe my eyes were playing tricks on me.

Damn, SyFy is seriously running low on good (and most of the time, original) ideas for their movies.

Oh.My.God ! The most craptastic movie after Birdemic. Eric Roberts is the s***, his being in stuff like this only proves it. Go Eric. Retirement is just around the corner. *sobs sadly for Eric Roberts' career*
