Beware the Indonesian Beach Creature!

One look at the trailer for this new Indonesian monster movie called Beach Creature (or Jenglot Pantai Selatan if you're Indonesian) and you'll quickly realize Piranha 3D is proving far more influential than any of us have yet realized.

It's that time of year again, when random strangers stand on your front lawn singing and people actually hope to hear a weird fat guy climbing down their chimney.
