Description by OLDIES.com:

The action is wet and wild in this sci-fi thriller that pits man - and woman - against a giant octopus. Submarine commander Pete Matthews (Kenneth Tobey) and scientists Lesley Joyce (Faith Domergue) and John Carter (Donald Curtis) battle an angry sea monster driven from the depths of the ocean by an H-bomb explosion. In search of non-contaminated food, this tentacled tyrant counts among its victims a fishing trawler and its passengers, a family sunning at the beach, several San Francisco skyscrapers and even the Golden Gate Bridge! A daring attempt by the scientists to destroy the monster while saving themselves is a gripping finale to this aquatic adventure. The riveting special effects were created by Ray Harryhausen.

Product Description:

An atomic submarine cruising the Pacific discovers a gargantuan octopus concealed in the ocean depths. By the time they figure out that the monster is the nasty by-product of a hydrogen bomb experiment gone awry, the creature is already well on its way to destroying San Francisco. The sea creature is yet another fantastic example of masterful stop-motion animation from the technique's master, Ray Harryhausen.

Rating 2.0 You've seen one giant octopus movie, you've seen...most of them Movie Lover: from Media, PA US -- July, 17, 2006

The main good thing I can say about this movie is that it delivers what it promises. We have the traditional story. Radiation leak, disconnected stories, doubting thomases, missing persons, and before you know it theirs a behemoth hexopus attacking the golden gate bridge. If you're still interested in this movie you really don't need to know about the characters or plot.
