Synopsis:
Kenn Kawa, bound and weighted, sinks into the ocean. He reflects how he got here as he pries off the water-soaked knots... The Challs are asked to investigate the disappearance of a young man from an offshore oil rig. Brenda and Kenn visit the rig: no oil in sight, no facial hair on any man... Ashore, Clay and Marlon question an oil executive who goes nuts with a gun screaming "Kolkothak is coming!"... Climbing back on the rig, Kenn learns the young missing MAN is a WOMAN, transformed by other-gody magic. All the crew are women, a sort-of Amazon cult. They're dedicated to Kolkothak, a Lovecraftesque alien squid-monster who was buried under the Pacific Ocean - until the oil drilling set it free. The cult chants until the "god" spills out of the pipes and absorbs its followers! Dodging black tentacles, Kenn and Brenda knock the oil pipe loose and torch it with a flare gun. The rig and god burn as our heroes dive into the water and are rescued by helicopter.
