Synopsis

Sailors kill a 50-foot creature at sea after a lengthy battle. The creature bears strange anatomical irregularities such as a single large eye and rudimentary forelegs and six-toed feet in place of pectoral fins. After inspection by marine biologists, it is revealed to be just a juvenile. The captain who captured the creature tours the coast and profits from the corpse of the deceased creature. As the captain attempts to finish his business at Martin's Beach, a group of swimmers are attacked. The captain and others attempt to rescue the victims but it is too late. The rescuers and the captain are hypnotized and pulled into the water by the creature's apparently vengeful mother, to the horror of an onlooking crowd.

H.P. Lovecraft

Howard Phillips Lovecraft (Providence, Estados Unidos, 20 de agosto de 1890 – ibídem, 15 de marzo de 1937) fue un escritor estadounidense, autor de novelas y relatos de terror y ciencia ficción. Se le considera un gran innovador del cuento de terror, al que aportó una mitología propia (los mitos de Cthulhu), desarrollada en colaboración con otros autores y aún vigente. Su obra constituye un clásico del horror cósmico, una corriente que se aparta de la temática tradicional del terror sobrenatural (satanismo, fantasmas), incorporando elementos de ciencia ficción (razas alienígenas, viajes en el tiempo, existencia de otras dimensiones). Lovecraft cultivó asimismo la poesía, el ensayo y la literatura epistolar.
