248 MONSTER FROM OCEAN RED (1984) a film by Lamberto Bava!

Mike and the Bots showed an edited/rearranged version of this film on MST3K. Did it deserve the scathing treatment it received? Of course it did.

director: Lamberto Bava (as John Old Jr)

Lamberto Bava didn't want to make a Shark Movie, especially a decade after Jaws. He was really trying to raise the money for his dream project Demons. The DACFILM executive producers made a deal... deliver a quick shark flick and then move on to Demons with a larger budget. Lamberto - with his director buddies Sergio Martino and Luigi Cozzi - decided to have fun with the plot. The monster would not be a Jaws Great White, but rather, an octopus/shark hybrid that somehow survived prehistoric time. And there would be a thriller element which would include nudity and a brute who drowns a young women in a bath tub.

The three men wrote the script [Sergio Martino used his Martin Dolman alias; Luigi Cozzi signed Lewis Coates] and a cast of unknowns plus popular genre actors were selected (including Gianni Garko of SARTANA fame and Dagmar Lassander from SO YOUNG SO LOVELY SO VICIOUS). Everybody went to Florida for the shoot.

Dino Conti plays marine biologist Bob Hogan (some sources insist he was paid in beer, he drinks at least 6 Buds during his screentime). Valentine Monnier is dolphin trainer Dr Stella Dickens (continuing Luigi Cozzi's habit of always naming his lead heroine Stella). These two - along with a young research scientist and a local sheriff - try to hunt down a large sea monster causing havoc off the Florida coast.

An Italian/French production in English language; fullscreen format (4:3), totally uncut version (90 minutes), DVD encoded for ALL REGION NTSC WORLD FORMAT. Extras include trailers.
