RiffTrax Live: Octaman at the Belcourt Theatre
Thu, Apr 18 7:00 pm
Deep in the Mexican jungle, a legendary creature lurks in a radioactive swamp. Is it a man? Is it an octopus? No, it’s OCTAMAN! ...Okay, it’s a man in an octopus suit, but he’s really angry and goes on a light killing spree. A scientific expedition sets out to study this atomic mutant and stop it before it kills again. They’re not very good at it because Octoman kills quite a lot, probably because THE DUMB SCIENTISTS KEEP STEALING ITS BABIES!! Seems there’s no stopping the monster until it develops a crush on the plucky lady scientist Susan Lowry (Pier Angeli) and does what all mutant sea creatures like to do - knocks her out and carries her away. Will the rest of the team be able to rescue Susan before Octaman picks them all off one by one? Looks pretty doubtful! That’s the thrill of Octaman! Directed by the writer of Creature From the Black Lagoon and featuring costumes and effects by a very young Rick Baker, Octaman is a wonderfully awful rubber monster B-movie. Join Bill, Mike and Kevin live and in person at the Belcourt Theatre, as they risk life and limb to deliver the laughs from the clutches of OCTAMAN!
