Ah, but what evil was this Giant Evil One was trying, “to communicate”?
It’s amazing how this elusive horror was video taped when the Japanese research team tried to capture it off the Ogasawara Islands, south of Tokyo. But the squid this 24–foot long (7m) monster died while being caught: the Great Cthulhu (クトゥルー) never will speak against its will.
