All right, who had "glowing tentacled aliens"? 

Sorry, "zombie" folks.  Maybe next time.

Can't say I'm surprised.

Unless this is exactly what they want you to think...

Wow, that is some very obvious glow CG added on to that footage.

no, it's not what we... I mean they... want you to think.  nothing to see here but CG trickery as my colleague Turtle pointed out.

You can tell it's CG because the glow is directly around the creature, and it's uniform, like it's overlayed on top of the 2D image on screen. If it was really glowing, the water would scatter some light, and it's own glowing form would occlude various parts.

Creatures that glow also tend not to glow uniformly, having cells in certain parts that glow.

You would think that until you realized that alien glow does not reflect off water and it is generated in a uniform glow intentionally.  This way when the aliens get caught on film you will think its CG.  Its the perfect camouflage!

It seemed like an issue with the camera, not the creature.

Modern cameras have less of those issues, and have not have those issues for a very long time. Most times you see things being "issues of the camera" it's people deliberately trying to hide CG within camera problems. It's why you always see stuff like this filmed on crap cameras, when by now, most phones already have better quality.

And for that matter, something like this shows up in a populated area, there will be extra footage from all the camera phones with way better quality than this.
