Famed horror master Mario Bava’s son, Lamberto Bava, directs his own take on the ‘creature feature’ genre. It mixes “Jaws” with “Tentacles” to create one of the wildest monsters ever: a giant mutant shark/octopus hybrid. However, there’s more to the creature’s appearance than that; it almost looks prehistoric in nature. Whatever it is, it’s a weird one — as you can see from the above French poster.
