A team of researchers discovers a strange mutation of man and octopus who proceeds to terrorise them using several predatory methods including strangulation and hypnosis…
“When Octaman is on the screen doing his thing all is right with the B-movie world.” (Dread Central)
Directed by CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON screenwriter Harry Essex, OCTAMAN is the kind of creature feature where the monster suit is the absolute star. Future makeup FX genius Rick Baker got his first screen credit for this one, building the 6-legged beast (!) while still in junior college.
- Directed by Harry Essex
- Starring Pier Angeli, Kerwin Mathews, Jeff Morrow & Read Morgan (as Octaman!)
- 1971 | 79mins | Mexico & USA | 18
