I have just finished watching OCTOPUS half expecting it to be an average time waster nowhere near as bad as the wretched TENTACLES (1977) and a little better than the ultra-lame mini-series THE BEAST, based on Peter Benchly's novel. I was pleasantly surprised. It's one of those movies that doesn't take itself too seriously, it has fairly decent special effects; all in all, it's a good popcorn movie. Somewhat predictable but still fun to watch.
Might even leave you with a craving for calimari.
