It’s just as one doctor says after performing autopsies on the first victims: “I don’t know of anything that would operate with a vacuum effect of stripping a human being right down to the bone.” In that moment, Tentacles is playfully asking for a suspension of all disbelief. With such a ludicrous premise at hand, it’s hard not to comply.
