Roger Corman was on Conan to promote for Sharktopus Vs. Pteracuda, and it was fitting that Conan’s first acting cameo would be unveiled on his show before the premiere on Syfy. As you can tell, Conan doesn’t last very long in Sharktopus Vs. Pteracuda, but his impact on the production is long lasting.
I would have to rank this cameo high above on my list of best decapitations from cinema, rivaled only by The Omen and Friday The 13th Part 8: Jason Takes Manhattan. It helps that a bunch of bros are nearby to play volleyball with Conan’s head, totally ignoring the giant shark that just bit it off and spit it towards them.
My only gripe is Conan’s assistant in the clip is not his real life assistant, Sona. I’m sure there are many who would echo that sentiment and slay many men to walk her dog or fetch her coffee.
