Want to know where horror moviemakers get their ideas from? Go to the bottom of the ocean.

Roman Fedortsov, a Russian deep-sea fisherman, has been tweeting images of some of the things he catches, and they look like creatures out of the movie Alien.

Warning: The following pictures might inspire you to never go swimming at the beach again.
