I have a soft spot for some of the good old ones, but hadn’t come across this one. I’m going to check it out!

You are so right! And the pictures…scary indeed…reminds me of those guys on the Johnny Depp pirate movie…I forget which one…but Nicholas Rossis tells me that if it is science fiction…there have to be tentacles somewhere!! Big teddy bear hugs, Teagan!
