Yoinked from wikipedia
A scientific expedition to a remote Mexican fishing 
community, led by Dr. Rick Torres (Kerwin Mathews) and 
Susan Lowry (Pier Angeli), discovers unhealthy amounts 
of radiation in the local waters. They find a small 
mutant octopus that can crawl on land, and Torres travels 
back to the States to present his findings, hoping to be 
granted more funding. Reception from the scientific 
establishment is lukewarm, so Torres makes a deal with 
Johnny Caruso, a circus owner who is interested in the 
bizarre mutation as a carny act. After their departure, a 
humanoid octopus, Octaman, attacks the camp and slaughters 
the remaining crew.
The scientists return to the camp in an RV a few days 
later and find it abandoned. Davido, a young Indian man 
from the nearby village, says that a local legend about a 
creature said to be half man and half sea serpent is true, 
and offers to take the scientists to the lake where it is 
purported to live. Meanwhile, Octaman kills some villagers. 
The next day, the scientists find another small mutant 
octopus, and Octaman has gone to the camp and killed a crew 
member and escaped. Johnny, witness to the attack, decides 
to capture the monster for his circus.
Octaman returns to the RV, but Lowry honks the horn to 
signal for help. The other scientists arrive and the monster 
flees. They go searching for it on the lake, and it pulls 
down another crew member out of their boat. When it reappears 
at the RV and captures Lowry, they blind it with their 
flashlights to stop it in its tracks, then light a ring of 
gasoline around it. The fire consumes enough oxygen that the 
monster suffocates and falls unconscious, and Lowry gets 
rescued. They finish the capture by tranquilizing it and trapping 
it under a net. In the morning, however, a thunderstorm brings 
rain which revives the Octaman and allows it to escape. It moves 
to seize Lowry, but she manages to communicate with it and send 
it away.
Davido tracks Octaman into a cave. The others consider 
abandoning the pursuit, but Davido goads them on. Octaman chases 
them into the back of the cave, gaining enough time to block the 
cave mouth and seal them in. However, Davido manages to find 
another way out. They return to the RV, but find Octaman waiting 
for them inside. In order to spare her colleagues, Lowry 
communicates that she accepts to be captured. Now determined to 
kill the beast, the expedition members shoot it at close range, 
forcing it to release Lowry, and continue firing until the monster 
retreats into the lake and dies.
