According to a reader suggestion, the people from Shark Diver have produced a film about giant squid diving that’s premiering in Hollywood later this month. I can’t find anything about it on their site, but I did find the page where you-your-very-own-self can go diving with the “Red Demon” Giant Squids of Mexico! At $2,200 a person, it’s not cheap. But how freaking crazy fantastic would it be?! If you doubt me, just read this:
They are notorious cannibals. They have been called the most opportunistic killers in the sea. They have been observed employing cooperative hunting techniques, yet they will not hesitate to gorge upon one another should they sense the slightest possible opening. This is the wild world of the Giant Squid, and we can take you there!
This is the kind of thing that makes me wonder how I ever lived without being near the ocean.
UPDATE: Here’s the site and trailer for the film, Demonio Rio. If that’s your speed, there’s a free screening on July 25th at the Hollywood Pacific Theater. I’m just glad to finally find out what the Hollywood Pacific Theater is!
