There is an octopus in the Goonies!

I got the Goonies on DVD for Xmas and have spent an enjoyable couple of hours re-watching what is one of my favourite ever films, and a true classic piece of cinema. Not only that but I finally got an answer to one part of the film that has always puzzled me…near the end when the kids escape and are fielding questions from the reporters; Data says “…the part with the Octopus was very scary” and I’ve wondered for years what he was on about.

Now, having watched the DVD deleted scenes in turns out there actually WAS a giant Octopus in it originally! After they’ve all jumped off One-Eyed Willy’s ship-it attacks them in the water and good ol’ Data saves the day 🙂
