Mysterious things happen at the coast of Graves Point: An empty boat lies at the shore, divers vanish. The sea biologist Dr. Talley thinks he knows the solution of the mystery: In the depth there is a gigantic squid.

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

I saw, the most of the viewers are don't like this movie, but i don't understand: why? The photography is great, the cast is too (Fonda, Huston, Winters, Hopkins, and Sherry Buchanan from Starcrash 2., or Franco Diogene from the Italian giallis). I think, the director had a great job. I love the feeling of Tentacoli... i know, some of the special effects are cheap, but its not a big budget movie, so i can forget it. And my first favorite: Stelvio Cipriani's remixed music from his another movie. Bombastic, and amazing. I saw Tentacoli when i was a child, and i love it now (now, im 30), like before. So, for me, its a 10 star movie. Not a gory horror, not a big budget mainstream title from Hollywood, but its a great ripoff of Jaws.
Try to enjoy it.
