Let us all take a moment to reflect on the fact that the movie Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda is a real thing. Someone came up with the idea, wrote the script, got other people involved, got funding for it, and put it on TV. Seriously. Along the same lines as such gems as Sharknado and Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla in quality, this movie is so bad it’s almost funny. Almost. If you have the right group of people. Just don’t get caught watching it alone.
It’s about two scientifically engineered creatures, namely the half shark-half octopus and the half pterodactyl-half barracuda who are transplanted for some reason to a beach and then duke it out. Don’t ask why; it’s less painful to just smile and go along with it. The most memorable thing about this movie is a cameo appearance by Conan O’Brien. Actually, to save some time, here’s two clips that you can watch instead of the movie:
And then Conan O’Brien’s death, which with the number of hilarious deaths in horror movies, is still pretty spectacular. READERS BE WARNED, while this clip is hilarious, it is also graphic:
There you go; I just saved you 90 minutes of your life. Unless you’re having a bad movie night with friends, in which case, you’re a very brave person.
