it was ok

I think Benchley uses madlibs when he comes up with the stories. A gigantic sh.....squid! a squid! is terrorizing a ..... Bermuda! Bermuda! This sh....squid is a mindless, instinctive eating machine, and it's zeroed in on eating humans. A sagacious scientist comes to help save the day only to wind up as chum, another character has money problems. Every character issue he uses in Jaws appears in Beast. Thankfully, the characters are just as flat. Can't wait for the next one. A massive sh....shrimp! a shrimp!! attacks..... New Orleans! I'm sure a ... surly scientist will come to help, only to wind up dead.
