Damn.  I really loved this.  I live in LA so this was somehow profoundly disturbing for me -- the monsters of my childhood attacking the place I've lived for 20 years.  Especially the Santa Monica Pier and Bike Path, I'm there nearly every weekend ... so seeing those two things collide from my imagination was odd.  By this, I mean it was REALLY cool!!!!!! :)
