“Cold waters, cold heat, cold diet”

Films: Eye of the Beast (2007)

Alias: None

Type: Natural

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: Twice that of an average giant squid.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: For as long as we are still using boats and studying the abyss, mankind will always fear the great cephalopods. And why not? They're large, intelligent, unsettling to those used to conventional anatomy, and we know so little about their world. Well once again, we have another contender for the title of Kraken. One that ditched the ocean a long time ago...

History: Near the shores of Fell Island, there are sightings of a great giant squid snatching those unfortunate enough to set sail in the fresh water, mostly at night. Of course, this doesn't stop a scientist and his crew from tracking it down to see exactly what's causing the local fish economy to take a nosedive. Can you guess what happens next?

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: After terrorizing his ship for so long, the squid is impaled through the eye via harpoon, which is instantly electrocuted as part of a successful plan to kill it.

Powers/Abilities: None.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 2.5-Credit where it's due, at least they tried to use real tentacle props this time. Sadly, all they really do when they don’t have a person ensnared is flop around limply. And then there's the squid itself. A near-lifeless CGI beast that doesn't even make most of its body known until the end.

Trivia: -As we have stated before once, there is only one species of freshwater cephalopod, and it is the Chesapeake squid, or the Atlantic Brief squid. It is no bigger than one-third of an inch, and only eats small fish and crustaceans.

-As if this film wasn't already similar to "Jaws", the two films share the same name of the first on-screen victim. That being Krissy.
