In the event that we ever got the feeling that there is not enough space for a lot of great options, the PS could be split into "Deep Sea Villains" and "Surface Sea Villains" (or "High Seas Villains"), but it thus far, it seems that there is plenty of residual space.

I'm surprised that It Came from Beneath the Sea has never been remade. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? I don't know.

Giving a Big Octopus a Hot Foot
bkoganbing (17,612 Reviews)
25 April 2006

It Came From Beneath the Sea was one of the better monster films from the Fifties as Hollywood cinema was desperately trying to compete with the small picture box gradually invading American homes. ...

The monster's no villain here as in some films.

He's just a creature whose habitat man has disturbedthat's trying to survive.

Unfortunately we can't have him roaming the Pacific

destroying all kinds of civilian and military activity.

So he has to be killed.

For me it was a bit sad seeing the outcome.

I think other viewers will feel the same way.
