I am Bunyip
From the shadows to come
Time to see.

The vengeful son of a murdered father is invited to meet his killer.

From Wikipedia


The bunyip (usually translated as "devil" or "spirit"[1]) is a mythical creature from Australian folklore. Various accounts and explanations of bunyips have been given across Australia since the early days of the colonies. It has also been identified as an animal recorded in Aboriginal mythology, similar to known extinct animals.

That would be awesome if you could pull it off.

I may not be right, but what I seem to remember from my brief obsession with cryptozoology was that the most common description of the Bunyip was that it had the head of a wolf and the body of a shark-type animal. If I am wrong, who cares, that would still totally rock. WereSHARKZ. Preying on were-surfers. :D

Seems to me the only Bunyip I remember seeing was a dodgey display on the Murray River somewhere in South Aus....Like the idea Noel

Creepiest google image search picture I found: http://www.americanmonsters.com/gallery/aquatic/images/bunyip6.jpg

I think it could take a Chupacabra. Maybe even a Yeti if it caught him by surprise...

This sounds like a pure unadulterated creature film. Can't wait to read it!

Shame you didn't get it in on time, Noel. Was looking forward to some Oz folk lore.
