Sea of Creepy Monsters

Dive deep into the Lembeh strait, a place near Indonesia which separates the islands of Sulawesi and Lembeh. This oceanic strait is a hotspot for some of the most unique marine biodiversity in the world.

In Sea of Creepy Monsters, we’ll join a group of wildlife filmmakers unraveling this area. Having spend four years shooting this documentary, the filmmakers captured hundreds of hours of marine life behaviour.

Countless amazing creatures thrive in the underwater landscape surrounding Lembeh island. We’ll visit strange and creepy species like the Ribbon eel, Demon Stingers, Stargazers, multiple Bobbit Worms, Peacock Flounders and many more.

We’ll also get to see unique behaviour filmed by the documentary crew; like a passing Lionfish being swallowed whole by an Anglerfish, elegant seahorses swimming hastily by, thumb-splitting Mantis shrimp and deadly mini-octopuses. These are just some of the remarkable creatures traditional underwater films tend to overlook.

Get a chance to visit life underwater, a place which usually passes by unnoticed. A visit which might reveal the awe and beauty of life in the sea of creepy monsters.
