VIDEO: Roger Corman Watches Bikini-Clad Beauty Get Eaten in Sharktopus Cameo

There was a time when it was thought that Roger Corman would actually direct Sharktopus, the SyFy channel shlocktastic midnight movie about a government engineered shark/octopus hybrid that debuted last fall. He didn't, of course -- but that doesn't mean the indie pioneer wasn't allowed to join in the fun. Corman appeared in the film as a "beach bum" who witnesses the terrifying(ly poor special effects of) sharktopus, and ahead you can watch him discuss how the amusing cameo came into being.

Sharktopus hits DVD on March 15.
