A brinicle, also commonly known as an “ice stalactite” forms under the sea ice when a flow of extremely cold saline water is introduced to ocean water. It is known as an ice stalactite because it is the undersea equivalent of a hollow stalactite. It freezes everything it touches, including sea creatures.

Tis real! But it looks like a CGI curse from a 90s film.
