Flangepart Why do I keep thinking that beastie is gonna get a bow sprit or a mast through that eye? MrTongoRad Ooh- it looks like it was written in the Tamarian language, too! Ericb Sargassum, weed of deceit! SteveWD The formula they all laughed at….. Eric Hinkle Ah, the glory days when every kid whop read about the Sargasso Sea knew that it was stuffed full of rotting ships, gangs of desperate sailors, tribes of cannibals, and sea monsters. Ken_Begg And survivors of the Spanish Inquisition! Gamera977 Suddenly I want to start singing the ‘Green Slime’ song! bgbear_rnh I didn’t expect that. Ken_Begg Well, when doesn’t one, really? sandra I suppose the cannibals eat the desperate sailors, then the sea monsters eat the cannibals. bgbear_rnh with an extra eye I would be thinking the Sigmund song. Flangepart I like the version with the extra verse. Greenhornet SPOILER ALERT! The monster is defeated by a bunch of hippies armed with a hundred cases of cigarette papers. Rock Baker One of the greatest covers I’ve ever seen! Gamera977 Alas, turtles can’t sing (and we don’t dance all that well either). Eric Hinkle With their ten-year-old king(?) and the hold full of man-eating plants. And BTW, am I mistaken or was that movie based on the William Hope Hodgson “Boats of the ‘Glen Carrig'”? Cullen Waters I don’t think you’re mistaken. Ken_Begg Actually, it was adapted from a Dennis Wheatley novel. Cullen Waters And there goes my Genre Trivia cred right down the drain. Eric Hinkle Really? And here I thought his sole novels were the “Devil’ series. The Rev. Oddly enough, before reading this yesterday, I had put the B-Fest CD with that song in my car’s player. Oooo, that reminds me: Ken, don’t forget my CD when you come down! Ken_Begg Its from a novel called Uncharted Seas, although I couldn’t tell you how close it is as an adaptation. Rodford Smith Didn’t they use that same monster in at least two episodes of _Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea_?
