Matthew Le Nevez,
A psychotic redneck, who owns a dilapidated hotel in rural East Texas, kills various people who upset him or his business, and he feeds their bodies to a large crocodile that he keeps as a pet in the swamp beside his hotel.
Several people disappear from and at the sea. Their bodies are found gnawed to the skeleton, even the marrow is missing. The scientists have no idea which animal could do such things. Dr. Turner begins to suspect that the company which builds a tunnel beneath the bay might have poisoned the environment and caused an octopus to mutate to giant dimensions. Just at the same time a great sailing regatta with many children is started - among them Turner's nephew Tommy.Written by

The two top-billed actors (John Huston and Shelley Winters) do not appear after the 1h15 mark (even though they are still alive). They are absent for the last 25 minutes of the film. See more »
When Bo Hopkins is seen suiting up before the final dive scene towards the end of the film, he is wearing a different wetsuit than his stunt double underwater. The diver underwater is wearing a suit with orange stripes on the arms of the suit, but topside, Bo's suit doesn't. See more »

Did this movie strike anyone else as odd in that the big name actors (mainly Huston and Fonda) seem to be delivering their lines as though they don't know the plot of the film? Fonda in particular has so many scenes where his lines are vague and could fit into any number of plots, I truly wonder if he signed on for a giant cephalopod film.
