It's the fish-frog people living just off shore, I think. I live 8 hours from the nearest ocean, so I'm not one to be terribly scared by amphibians.
Zombies, though, those are a serious threat to my existence.
I'm not a huge Lovecraft fan (largely out of laziness -- I haven't read more than 2 or 3 of his stories)(and the language he uses to describe non-white characters makes me a little uncomfortable, depending on the story), but I knew I'd love SOI from the first time I heard of the story. It definitely scares me (I'm easily scared), but the fear is less "uh-oh, that could happen to me" and more "oooh, creepy, coooool".
