Directed by Ovidio G. Assonitis (Beyond the Door), 1977’s Tentacles is a Jaws rip-off about a seaside tourist resort under attack by a giant octopus.

John Huston, Shelley Winters, Bo Hopkins, and Henry Fonda are tasked with keeping the massive marine menace from turning their sleepy hamlet into an all-you-can-eat buffet.

It all begins when marine expert Will Gleason (Hopkins) and reporter Ned Turner (Huston) investigate the construction of an underwater tunnel by the Trojan company, owned by Mr. Whitehead (Fonda).

12 Angry Men dvd12 Angry Men – **** (Classic Movie)
Directed by Sidney Lumet
Starring Martin Balsam, John Fiedler, Lee J. Cobb, E. G. Marshall, Jack Klugman, Edward Binns, Jack Warden, Henry Fonda, Joseph Sweeney, Ed Begley, George Voskovec, Robert Webber

Twelve men walk into a smoldering, small, fan-less room. They are a jury and have to make their decision on whether or not an 18-year-old boy who stabbed his father to death is guilty or not guilty. We only see outside of the small room for 3 minutes (secondhand learning of the case, never any flashbacks) and in one of the scenes it shows the judge telling the jury to make their decision in a bored tone voice. He knows that the jury is going to vote “not-guilty,” but he’s wrong. Most of them are thinking that this is going to be a half-hour meeting. Some light up their cigarettes, open the windows to get a whiff of fresh air, and sit back ready to make their vote. The foreman of it all then lays down the rules that there has to be a unanimous decision and then asks to hear everyone’s verdict. Eleven hands go up for claiming the boy guilty, which would lead to the boy getting sentenced to the electric chair, but one lone hand is proudly raised for not guilty.
