B-Movie Monsters Wiki

The main monster from the 2000 action film, Octopus, the Octopus was once a regular Octopus, until a Soviet submarine that was carrying barrels of the anthrax virus for biological warfare was sunk by an American submarine. The bacteria leaked out of the barrels from the submarine, and the Octopus was affected by it: the mutation was compounded in each generation of its descendants. By the final generation, the Octopus has become huge and is now suffering a huge iron deficiency, making it overly aggressive and a strong craving for meat.


The Octopus started to attack different kind of ships and submarines that would pass by, giving it’s general location the name, Devil’s Eye. When another submarine was passing by with a captured terrorist, the Octopus attacked the rotors, causing it to stop. When two people look at the rotor, one of them gets eaten by the Octopus. The people inside the submarine try using the torpedoes to kill it, but the Octopus is still alive. The Octopus then wraps it's tentacles around the submarine and causes it to sink further down into the ocean. It attacks the submarine once more, causing the water to leak inside of it. The Octopus attacks inside the submarine with it's tentacles until it leaves and lets the submarine crash down onto the ocean floor. The Octopus attacks the third time when the people inside lure it to the submarine, where it’s reactors are causing it to meltdown and explode soon, using the iron within protolyte. When they start to make their escape, the Octopus manages to kill one of them. The Octopus continues attacking the submarine as the people inside make their escape in a mini-sub. The people manage to escape and the submarine explodes, presumably killing the Octopus. However, the Octopus survives the explosion and has risen up to the surface to attack a cruise ship carrying many passengers. The Octopus kills some of the terrorists that were on the ship and even kills the captured terrorist. In the end, the Octopus gets blown up to pieces when one of the people drives a submarine containing the terrorists’ bomb into its mouth, actually killing it this time.

  • Adapted Swimmer: Much like a regular Octopus, it is able to swim through the water.
