Suddenly the ship is HIT AGAIN. This time something

enormous RIPS THROUGH THE HULL, crushing one of the crew

members as it TEARS THROUGH THE WALLS.

Water RUSHES THROUGH the large gaping hole, quickly

filling the hallway. The Cook and what's left of the

crew scurry for the stairs, as the water level chases

them.

8 INT. BRIDGE - SAME - NIGHT8

The ship's computers are WHIRLING with warning lights

and alarms. As the Skipper tries to adjust the controls

in vain, the Captain grabs the ship's p.a. system.

CAPTAIN:

(in Japanese)

Abandon ship! Abandon ship! Man the

lifeboats...

But before he can say anything more, something WHIPS

across the bridge's enormous windshield, SHATTERING THE

GLASS. Was it a tail? No way, far too big.

9 EXT. SHIP'S DECK - SAME - NIGHT9

The doors BURST open as the crew and the Cook rush out

onto the deck. Again, the ship is HIT, ROCKING it

violently.

A TARP:

is ripped away, revealing a life boat. Two more life

boats are revealed behind it as the crew desperately

tries to hoist them up and over the side.

ANGLE - WATER BESIDE THE TANKER

Something ENORMOUS jolts out of the water towards the

ship. Through the rainstorm it is hard to make out what

it is, but it SLAMS into the side of the ship, RIPPING

INTO IT, pulling down the starboard side as it does.

Could that have been a CLAW?

THE CREW:

Are thrown backwards. The lifeboats swing WILDLY,

several of them SMASHING INTO BITS as they slam against

the ship.

THE CLAW:

Or whatever it is, RIPS INTO THE SIDE AGAIN. This time

the entire ship begins to FLIP OVER.

A LIFEBOAT:

Bounces off the deck and slides off the side. Following

it is the Cook.

Desperately, the Cook grabs onto the ship's side railing

to keep from falling off. He looks back and SEES

something so horrible that he SCREAMS IN TERROR and lets

go of the railing.
