Letters

Letters

Whilst at work, a laboratory technician discovers a strange substance. The liquid, which obviously possesses some form of intelligence, compels the technician's dog to drink it. The dog then mutates into an alien being. This creature starts to feel bothered by the scientist's curiosity, and a fight to the death begins.
