Deep Rising

Continuity mistake: When Vivo finds Pantucci snooping around the cargo, he throws him to the middle of the mercenaries, and they all get around him, including T. Ray who smiles at him; when T. Ray smiles at Joey he is standing up, but when he gives the first kick he is sitting down.

Continuity mistake: When the owner of the ship is screaming, "This equipment is state of the art. Top of the line," he goes from facing the Captain behind him to facing forward, between cuts.

Continuity mistake: In the end of the movie, it is raining in all of the shots, except for a single shot after the heroes jump out of the exploding ship, immediately after a shot where it is raining.

Question: There is a scene where Canton says he believes the creatures were a strange offshoot of the ARCHAEA OTTOIA family. He then describes how big they get based on how deep down they are as well as what they do to their victims. Question is does the Archaea Ottoia really exist? If so is anything Canton said about it true? I tried looking for this creature in the search engine but with no luck.
