July 12, 2006, Hollywood, California – Seawolves Unlimited is proud to announce that admission for the July 25, 2006, screening of the never-before-seen, high-resolution documentary “Sea of Demons: Demonio Rojo,” (Red Demon), will be FREE. Seawolves Unlimited is the first-ever and only ecotourism company in world to offer scuba trips to dive with the most dangerous and unpredictable sea creature on Earth, the Giant Humboldt Squid of Mexico's Sea of Cortez.
With a legendary ferocity, the Humboldt squid (Dosidicus gigas) , which grow to over six feet in length and weigh over 180-pounds, are armed with huge sucker disks lined with over 60,000 teeth that can shred a wetsuit, and their knife-edged beak can gouge out a softball-sized chunk of flesh every 3 seconds. Combined with their extraordinary intelligence and wolf pack-like hunting abilities, keeping an upper hand while scuba diving with these animals is a challenge. These magnificent cephalopods feed on nearly every animal they encounter, including sharks, pelagic fish, krill, mammals, other squid (they are fierce cannibals), and even man.
“Sea of Demons: Demonio Rojo,” is produced by Jason Perr of Gone to Baja Productions, and Scott Cassell, with cinematography by Dale Pearson and Scott Cassell of San Diego's Seawolves Unlimited. “Sea of Demons: Demonio Rojo,” chronicles the history and biology of Giant Humboldt Squid and the lives of the pioneering divers, Scott Cassell and Dale Pearson, who developed the highly-specialized diving technologies and techniques, including diver protection platforms, chain maille-covered and/or custom-made armored wet suits, and other systems to safely peer into the lair of one of Earth's most legendary sea creatures.
The “Sea of Demons: Demonio Rojo” screening will take place on Tuesday, July 25, 2006, at 8:00 p.m. at the Hollywood Pacific Theater, 6433 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood, CA, 90028. Scott Cassell, Dale Pearson and Jason Perr will be on hand to answer questions. Admission is FREE – get there early, as seating will be extremely limited.
