A weird tale that anticipates the fiction of H.P. Lovecraft. Terror on the high seas when crew men on a ship encounter a man whose body is slowly being absorbed by a gelatinous cosmic horror.
William Hope Hodgson (November 15, 1877 – April 1918) aims for horror with a scientific rather than a supernatural basis. In fact Lovecraft called him "second only to Algernon Blackwood in his serious treatment of unreality." Oscar nominated and Emmy Award Winning Special Effects makeup Artist Ed French narrates this chillingly somber tale.
