BeckoningChasm Is that “The Monster Squad”? That’s a pretty good sea creature, whatever it is, and it’s a pretty fresh variant on the Gill-Man (as opposed to an outright copy).

Wasn’t my kind of flick, but I do like this gillman (he’s not THE gillman, but he’s a pretty nifty offshoot). Only thing is, what was he on screen for, 45 seconds?
