Well, he's bringing one of his most popular mutant hybrid creations back, and he's pitting it in a fight to the death with a brand new monster that you'd only find in a film with the name Roger Corman attached to it. It's Sharktopus vs. Mermantula, folks, and we've got two sneak peek clips for ya below!
From the Press Release
Legendary filmmaker Roger Corman continues to fuel the cross-species mutant mash-up sci-fi genre with his latest feature, Sharktopus vs Mermantula.
The production, which wrapped shooting in the Dominican Republic on August 9, features beautiful actress Catherine Oxenberg (Dynasty, Acapulco H.E.A.T., Watch Over Me) playing the shady mad scientist whose quest to create the perfect man runs afoul when her experimental drugs transform a washed-up baseball player into the hideous and hapless half-merman, half-tarantula known as Mermantula. Meanwhile, Sharktopus has returned to terrorize the Caribbean location where the scientist and her Mermantula struggle with the transformative process.
Oxenberg’s real life husband, Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers, Watch Over Me) plays the affable local drunk Ray, who is engaged by a voodoo-practicing crime boss to collect a portion of Sharktopus for use in his nefarious rituals. Ray, grappling to retrieve a remnant of Sharktopus, gets caught up in the wild battle between Sharktopus vs. Marmantula, a disaster of monstrous proportions.
