Octaman

Filmmaker, Harry Essex, well known for scripting such classics as Creature From The Black Lagoon and It Came From Outer Space, tried his hand at directing and Octaman was the result.

Inspired by the success of the Creature, Harry's Octaman is a total B movie hoot! Essex cast the film with Sci-Fi favorites Kerwin Mathews (7th Voyage Of Sinbad) and Jeff Morrow (The Creature Walks Among Us), making this elusive movie much sought after by Cult Movie fans who spent years trying to track it down.

Oscar winning makeup effects artist Rick Baker (Men In Black) created a fun rubber monster suit, but the movie, music of it filmed silent and dubbed later, is a weird mixture of different grainy film stocks and odd choices.

Included here as an extra bonus is Harry Essex's next Sci-Fi undertaking, The Cremators (1972). Like Octaman, much of the movie was filmed silent and dubbed later with various degrees of success. Special visual effects by Doug Beswick and the lovely Maria De Aragon (Blood Mania) liven things up.
