Devil Fish

A shark-octopus hybrid occasionally goes on an unconvincing rampage in this poorly-executed Italian Jaws ripoff. After a couple of partially dismembered bodies are dragged out of the ocean, nothing of interest happens until the 37-minute mark when the tentacles finally appear. It's not very impressive. Then someone is raped, and the rapist covers up his crime by giving his victim a bath and tossing in a hairdryer. I'm not sure why. There are several yawn-inducing love scenes, and I'm not sure why. Someone is pummeled by tentacles, and someone brandishes an ax. While Devilfish is truly awful, I'm not certain it deserves its place in IMDB's Bottom 100 (it's currently #47, above Monster A Go-Go, Santa Claus Conquers The Martians, and The Beast Of Yucca Flats). Devilfish contains shoulder pads, high-waisted jeans, and very few devil fish.
