"Octaman" is a horror film from 1971. It's rightly regarded as a turkey. All the usual ingredients are there: lousy special effects, embarrassing monster, bad acting, illogical plot, and so on. It also has that strange charm which marks out turkeys from films that are merely bad. Indeed, "Octaman" is a cult classic. This is the 40th anniversary re-release.

The movie features what has to be the ultimate cryptid: a humanoid octopus, spawned in Mexico as the result of radioactive fallout from Hiroshima...I think. One of many unintentionally comic moments is the scene where the monster (a veritable killing machine) turns out to be vulnerable to flashlights! Come again?! :D

The one-star rating from my part could just as well be a five-star rating, depending on how you think hilariously nonsensical horror movies should be rated...

I LIKED OCTAMAN.I FIRST WATCHED THIS ON VIDEO ABOUT TWENTY YEARS AGO AND I HAD FORGOTTEN HOW ENTERTAINING IT WAS.MAY PEOPLE WILL SAY ITS CHEESY-MAYBE SO BUT TWENTY YEARS AGO WE DID NOT HAVE THE C.G.I.THAT MODERN MOVIES RELY ON.AS A WEIRD MONSTER MOVIE IT REALLY STANDS OUT AS BEING ORIGINAL AND ITS GREAT TO SEE KERWIN MATTHEWS AGAIN AFTER THE RAY HARRYHAUSEN MOVIES HE APPEARED IN-HE ALWAYS LENDS A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF CHARM TO HIS ROLES-PITY HES NOW LONG GONE.THE PREMISE OF THE MOVIE IS BASIC JUST HUNTING DOWN AN OCTOPUS/MAN RUNNING RIOT IN MEXICO SOMEWHERE DESPATCHING VICTIMS AT WILL.THIS MOVIE IS WELL WORTH A LOOK-I HAVE ADDED IT TO MY COLLECTION OF UNUSUAL BIZARRE MOVIES.

Garbage. God this was dull. It doesn't even make it in the so bad it's good stakes. I was expecting a little more given this was a 40th Anniversary Edition. Instead the DVD sleeve was badly printed on poxy paper; the picture of the print was good, but so what - this piece of crud hardly deserved any anniversary. The film involves Octaman lurking around in the weeds whilst scientists run this way and that. It is mind-numbingly dull. There can be some fun had seeing Octaman is in fact wearing a pair of green wellington boots. But not much. I'd give this a swerve.

An "odd little squid" and ashes to ashes 5 Nov. 2012
By Einsatz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The question is, was Harry Essex deliberately trying to imitate the way monster movies were made during the 50s or was he just terribly behind the times, a little slow to catch up? I can't decide. At any rate, it is very reminiscent of movies like Creature From the Black Lagoon. The rubber monster was a hoot, all eyes and a teeth lined mouth perpetually set like a big O. Watching this monster walk with tentacles that looked more like pointed shoes was hysterical. The camera work was very trippy (all right, amateurish, I was trying to be kind). They also managed to throw in a message about ecology and recycling. Loved the burning ring of fire sequence. Wish I could say something nice about the bonus movie, The Cremators, but I can't. The lighting was awful; at times everything else in the scene was lit but the actor's faces! There was a running gag with a dancing hippy on the beach that made no sense whatsoever. A lot of the scenes were fixed as single shots that went on forever. There isn't much to recommend it. I almost fell asleep. Never has a 71 minute movie felt more like 6 hours.

Octa-Cheeeze... 19 Nov. 2012
By Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
OK, if you're going into OCTAMAN expecting another CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON, w/ excellent fx from Rick Baker, ala AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, you had better look elsewhere. If, however, you love 70s schlocky cheeze, complete w/ idiotic story, heinously bad acting, and a wiggly / wobbly man-in-a-rubber-suit, then you have hit pay-dirt! OCTAMAN is brain-scorching, soul-collapsing torture! View only if you (like me) are a hyper-schlock fanatic!...

Just How I Like My Cheese 13 April 2013
By K. Weavil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This film takes me back to the days of really bad drive in movies (that's good). The rubber suited monster invokes memories of my youth watching my favorite movies (any Japanese rubber suited monster) and brings a smile to my face. Any fan of cheesy fun monster movies will love this one. The film quality and sound are good, and in spite of what other reviewers say, the bonus film is equally interesting to true fans of the genre. In the words of the immortal Roger Ebert (may he rest in peace in the balcony up above) I give it two thumbs up for both.

A cheesy monster flick that's fun for cheese monster movie fans like my self! 6 May 2013
By Dan the monster movie fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Let's check list this film: Cheesy monster check, descent acting check, a ring of fire check, weird check, gore check, descent to below basic characters check, fun check, Rick Baker's glorious effects check, and from the 70s check. So a stream leading from the ocean to a vast desert/canyon-like valley in Australia has allowed for radioactivity to cause octopi(plural for octopus) to mutate. Said octopi go down said stream and live in a swampy setting. Octaman is just an over sized octopus who just so happens to have the sort of shape of a man. A family and other people go to said valley for vacation and are killed off one by one by the beast who's just protecting it's offspring. In good ole' monster fashion it kidnaps the female lead who's become the beast's love interest and takes her away. The film ends with the survivors lighting a ring of fire around the Octaman which takes away the oxygen from the creature killing it sadly Johnny Cash's song "ring of fire" never plays while it occurs. Yes this film is sleazy and cheesy but fun some may find it difficult to sit through but if you love cheese, are a die hard monster fan like my self, or love sleazy b-movies you will enjoy this flick. This is the film that rocketed Rick Baker's fame who would later do the effects for the great b-movie The Bat People 1974, the John Landis horror-comedy spoof of 50s sci-fi Schlock 1973 the ape suit looks gorgeous, It's Alive 1973, It's Alive 2 1979, John Landis's greatest horror-comedy film An American Werewolf in London 1981, Michael Jackson's Thriller music video he did the werewolf and zombie makeup,The Thing with 2 heads 1972, The Excorcist 1973, King Kong 1976, Track of the Moon Beast 1976, Squirm 1976, The Incredible Melting Man 1977, The Funhouse 1981, The incredible Shrinking Woman, Videodrome, Ratboy 1986, Harry & the Hendersons he even wore the suit he made, Missing Link 1988, Wolf 1994 and a lot more. Octaman is one of my favorite films and it's just so fun to watch I'd really like to own a miniature figure of the Octaman or the actual suit that's how much I love this thing. The disc includes: Main feature, trailers, bonus film about a giant flaming ball that rolls over people which was kinda fun, an interview, and scene selection. Oh you also get a drive-in wrap around.

FINALLY!!!!!! 24 Nov. 2012
By JOHN TAGTMEIER JR. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I've been looking for this movie for forever, I love this film!!! Cool looking Rick Baker monster & it stars frickin Sinbad himself, Kerwin Mathews!!!! Nice added bonus you get the movie "The Cremators"......fun film about giant fire-ball monsters & it stars Maria De Aragon......who looks just as hot as she did in "Blood Mania". I'm a monster movie fan and this film rocks.......if you get tired of the c.g.i. crap we're spoon-fed, look into this fun movie from a time when all it took was a camera, a rubber monster & some imagination.
