Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus (2009)

IMDb plot summary: The California coast is terrorized by two enormous prehistoric sea creatures as they battle each other for supremacy of the sea.
Directed by Ace Hannah (whose real name, IMDb informs me, is apparently Jack Perez). Starring Deborah Gibson, Lorenzo Lamas, and Vic Chao.

The so-bad-it's-good movie HAS to be really, really bad to turn back into good, and, unfortunately, most of this one was just blah. There were a few great over-the-top moments (the scene where the shark flies out of the water to eat the plane was truly, truly hilarious) but the rest didn't live up to the potential at all. If you want to watch a silly shark movie, Sharknado is definitely the way to go.

1.5 stars.

Flickchart: #1539 out of 2149, below Dinner for Schmucks and above Unknown.
