Completed in less than a week for under $12,000, this Roger Corman debut set the pace that would eventually make him "King of the Quickies." With a budget as cheap as this, Corman simply couldn't go wrong, even with Ordung's nondirection. Kimbell is vacationing in Mexico when she takes a

dip in the water and discovers that she isn't alone. Her visitor, a gigantic one-eyed octopus, sends her directly to marine biologist Wade. He, of course, doesn't believe her half-baked tale, so she takes to the water again. The tentacled-terror has had about enough and attacks her, but Wade comes

to the rescue in his sporty mini-sub. He saves the day when he steers the sub into the monster's eye. As a budget saver, Corman doesn't bother to show the monster until absolutely necessary. This may be a lousy movie, but it was the beginning of something big and cheap.
