Viewer comment, much appreciated:

What a magical, rare find. It all seems so intriguing and mysterious.
"The Tentacles" brought a dread from within me, deep and mournful,
dreamy visions of childhood fears. These are remarkable for the
emotional responses that they evoke.
  I'm temporarily stunned into silence. Was the film finished? I'd love to
know more about it. I swear, the voice & the poem make me feel as if
there are ghosts surrounding me.
  Very eerie feeling.

THE TENTACLES

He signed the post above his door
“The Tentacles” – no less, no more –
As if to signify an inn
Run by a salty sea captain

Now landlocked. But ‘twas not to be.
For this mate was still out at sea,
Imprisoned in the arms so strong
Of a sea monster that held him long.

For when he first departed shore,
Or even longer, long before,
The tentacles did him enfold
Til its sad, long tale was finally told.

"Jim Terr, man of music, media and movies, manages to achieve, in The Wrong Guy," the essential element of successful feature film-making: he is always at least one step ahead of his audience." 
         -Gerald Fried, Oscar-nominated, Emmy-winning film composer (Stanley Kubrick, "Roots", etc.)

"Production value and budget always counts less than a great 'script'.  If I had money for a flutter on one NM filmmaker (or disposable income for a speculative investment)
then Jim's my guy."
