I just watched Mega-Shark vs. Giant Octopus and it was hilarious. Definitely the best worst movie I've ever seen.

It stars former pop idol 'Deborah' Gibson and Lorenzo Lamas.

At one point, the Mega-Shark leaps out of the water and grabs a passenger jet out of mid-air. Later, it takes a giant bite out of the Golden Gate Bridge. Not to be outdone, the Giant Octopus destroys an oil drilling rig and knocks a fighter jet out of the sky.

The acting is bad, the writing is bad the 'special effects' are bad and I still highly recommend this movie. I guarantee there will be scenes you will want to watch again and again and you will laugh every time.

Make sure you watch this one with friends so you can sit around doing your own Mystery Science Theater 3000. You won't regret it.

Got to admit I've never heard of it.

You can check out the trailer on YouTube.

If I copied it right try this:

Or just put Mega Shark in the search box. You'll find it.

I've also been told that it's running on the Sci-fi Network.

Mega-Shark vs. Giant Octopus. Yes, that's definitely the mark of an underestimated masterpiece.

I don't know Max Magican and the Legend of the Rings is pretty good/bad. It takes about twenty minutes before you realize it was made by a ten year old. There is a scene where the background is an old ratty blanket and it falls down.

Someone actually watched this?

I started to, sorry, b-rated monster shark or snake or anything mutated for that matter make fun movies. Bad acting even better. And the renegade-star and pop-star, priceless. I must confess I flipped to it during commercials of another show I was watching. The special effects are always fun in movies like these. My favorite to date, special effect wise would be a mega shark, or shark attack,#3 think. Megladon or somethign like that. The shark came up and swallowed the boat whole, it looked like they flushed a toy boat down a toilet and then by computer graphics changed the toilet seat to the sharks mouth. It was great.
