TV Mini-Series | PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Horror
Mysterious things happen at the coast of Graves Point: An empty boat lies at the shore, divers vanish. The sea biologist Dr. Talley thinks he knows the solution of the mystery: In the depth there is a gigantic squid.
Based on the book by Peter Benchley. Benchley was the executive producer of this television adaptation.
How do we keep her from attacking the boat?
Dr. Herbert Talley: We'll repel her with this. It contains recorded sonar waves given off by a mature sperm whale hunting for squid.
Whip Dalton: She killed a whale.
Dr. Herbert Talley: Only an infant. She wouldn't dare attack a whale the size of the Privateer.
Whip states the largest whole squid carcass ever found was 45 feet long, and that no one knows how big a squid gets. While the first statement is not strictly true, it could be Whip's error; the second statement is true, since squid are not generally visible.
The 2 disc DVD release contains the full 2 part 176 minute version.
