Ah, the Quintipus. Harryhausen’s beast cost $10,000 a tentacle, and they only gave him $50,000, so there you go. Still, one of the few really decent sea monster movies (a Harryhausen specialty), and man, I loves me the giant octopi. It’s a mark of how good Harryhausen’s work is that the movie is as fun as it is, since it really drags whenever the monster is offscreen, despite typically good acting by Kenneth Tobey. Even so, the character stuff in this film is highly lame.
