Trivia

This film was a personal voyage for the director, who wanted to use the film as a vehicle to overcome his fear of octopi. Unfortunately, he succumbed to his fear and killed himself quite soon after the release of the movie. See more »

Goofs

During the escape, someone makes a remark about the impending explosion of the submarine Roosevelt "...turning this thing into calamari." Calamari is squid, not octopus. See more »

Classic inspiring cheapness
8 May 2003 | by (Kirriemuir, Scotland) – See all my reviews

Octopus is one of the original classic cheap crap movies that started it all for the followers of the 'Elite'. From the outset the movie delivers with absolute genius. It starts with casper the friendly terrorist planting a bomb in some embassy place somewhere, the location isn't that important, anyway the important thing is the explosion with the cuts of henry and his sidekick falling(genius) The explosion which was done for this movie which looked frightfully similar to the cheap explosion in the Seagal classic 'Ticker'. Yes its not like Seagal coppied it for Ticker or anything. Anyway back to the plot, a chase scene ensues after the explosion, which wasn't ripped off for Ticker, and henry does this amazing run, well more of a waddle actually, and this is one of the biggest pieces of comical genius ever, classic without a doubt, even to rival the scene when ben affleck falls out of the helicopter in sum of all fears, in fact it probably surpasses it, and Henrys attempt at character depth is also classic with his 'Berlin 52, 53, 54' lines. The only other comical legend line from the movie is when Casper(another classic Seagal name)comes up behind the woman in the submarine, scaring her and saying, 'ooo i like that in a woman'. Classic without a doubt. this movie is the original cheapness and a masterpiece along with bats, python, spiders and that killer bee movie, i can't remember what its called but it doesn't really matter. Watch Octopus if you live for classic cheapness.
