I just watched a rented Movie last night, called "Splice"
While I was watching it, I couldn't help but notice how possibly close to the truth this fictional movie might actually be. Especially when talking about the mutations they created, Amoebae looking blobs called Fred and Ginger.
Then looking at the mutations that have been found off the shores of Montauk, ei, Montauk Monster. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,395294,00.html
Which is believed to have drowned and washed ashore from Plum Island genetics research and development facility that is located there. (suspected facility?)
Or could be the Plum Island animal disease center?
But in the movie, they took the experiments in gene splicing further and added human DNA to the batter.
