Demeking is here!

So today Demeking: The Sea Monster [aka Demekingu; Space Monster Demeking] (Japan-2009; dir. Kôtarô Terauchi) hits DVD in the US.

In 1969, a young man finds an anonymous letter in a glass bottle which describes the apocalyptic arrival of a cosmic monster known as Demeking. Since then, he has physically prepared himself in a lone struggle for that fateful day when the monster will arrive. 
In case you haven't been paying attention and want to know what the monster Demeking looks like, well, he's a sort of undersea/space Gastropod -- a snail-like monstrosity with eyes on stalks and what looks a bit like coral vents on his back.

Here he is from a distance and direct from the movie:

Here are models of him -- puppets used as part of the SFX collateral:

Finally, a Demeking toy:

Cute, eh?
