It came from Nu Image productions
22 January 2002 | by (Tokyo Japan) – See all my reviews

This is awful. Really bad. Makes the original seem good. There is actually more (unconvincing) Octo in this one, but it never does anything interesting. And then they tag on some DAYLIGHT "inspired" disaster movie stuff at the end. Stay away. In Japan the video is known as OCTOPUS IN NEW YORK (it attacks Manhattan by the way, well actually it doesn't).
