'Sharktopus' trailer: Half shark! Half octopus! 100% fantastic garbage!

Actually, having just watched the trailer for the new, Eric Roberts-starring, Roger Corman-produced Syfy channel movie of that name, I’m not convinced sharktopuses – or should that be “sharktopi”? – are scary at all. But that’s not really the point, is it? With a bungee jumper getting eaten in mid leap, a retro-cheesy theme song, and Roberts chewing the scenery like, well, a hungry shark-octopus hybrid super weapon of some sort, this has “Unmissable crud” written all over it. In blood! And octopus ink!! And possibly waterproof paint as well!!!!!!!!

Check out the clip after the jump, and tell us what you think.
