Very rare classic B-horror movie OCTAMAN that includes
special effects by the Academy Award-winning monster
Rick Baker. This is one of those cult horror movies that stuck
around because it is so fun to watch
over and over. Probably not as
scary as the creators originally had wanted, but a cult movie none
the less so they can't be that disappointed. I've seen this film at
several movie festivals as of late as people are dusting of the old
35mm prints. This is a rare find even on VHS, so a DVD is even
rarer. Almost impossible to find.
Something strange is happening in the
wilds of Mexico. Radioactive waste has contaminated the major
waterways. Once harmless sea creatures have developed frighteningly
complex inteligence systems. And research scientists are turning up
dead. The OCTAMAN is on the prowl!
This DVD is excellent quality. I'd rate it a 9/10 for both
picture and sound. I mean the movie was filmed with poor quality
originally (low light levels that is), but the print holds up well.
You can even see the minor frame hairs and burn marks here and
there... so you know whomever did the transfer to DVD had a 35mm
print. It is from overseas but I only noticed a few asian words in
the credits (including an interesting asian movie trailer at the
end). It is 100% English, with NO subtitles. A great feature this
DVD has is that it is full of chapter marks so you can skip ahead
and backwards quickly. Very handy and a nice feature compared to
watching it on an old VHS tape. The case is excellent and the disc
is mint as well... the case has a nice graphical sleeve and the
disc has some graphics as well.
This DVD is also REGION FREE! So you can play it
on any DVD player around the world.
