SHARKTOPUS VS PTERACUDA finds an American scientist up to no good (as usual) by creating the half-pterodactyl, half-barracuda: Pteracuda. When the creature inevitably escapes, it's up to Sharktopus to stop him.Written by
The fact that the egg sac fell out of the original sharktopus during its death reveals that it was actually a female. See more »

And just when you thought the water and skies were safe...
I will just start off with saying that if you enjoyed the first "Sharktopus" movie, then you will also enjoy this one. Or if you enjoy these cheesy monstrous predator movies, then chances are you will find some entertainment in "Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda".
The storyline is essentially the same as it always is in these particular type of movies; a scientist of sorts have created a monstrous species of hybrid by mixing two species of predators. And as luck will have it, what they thought they could control runs amok and starts killing people.
The first "Sharktopus" movie was campy and cheesy, and "Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda" is right up alongside with it. And this is the type of movie that you just sit back, laugh at and enjoy for what it is; senseless storyline and b-movie entertainment.
And apparently there is another "Sharktopus" movie on the way.
Anyway, I wonder who sits at the drawing boards and comes up with these ideas. I mean a half shark and half octopus, at least that makes sense in some bizarre way. But a half pterodactyl and half barracuda. Why? It is just so stupid.
As with the first movie, you know exactly what you get here. A silly storyline with questionable CGI effects. And to top it off, the creatures make these really awful screeching noises.
The acting in the movie was as to be expected for a movie of this type.
"Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda" scores a 3 out of 10 stars, just as I rated the first "Sharktopus" movie.
