Strange happenings and danger in the Loch
21 March 2005 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

I believe The Secret of the Loch was the first movie to deal with the Loch Ness Monster. It was made in 1934, just as people started seeing strange creatures in and around Loch Ness. It was also the year "The Surgeon's Photo" was taken, only to be discovered as a hoax many years later. I found this movie quite enjoyable.

A reporter is sent to Loch Ness to investigate strange sightings and disappearances there. After asking the locals about the monster, he decides to go down into the Loch himself and the monster then appears, which is living in caves below the surface. At the end, the monster comes to the surface and swims away.

The monster used in The Secret of the Loch is a photographically enlarged lizard, which I believe doesn't even live underwater and looks nothing like a Plesiosaur, which most of the sightings describe.

The cast includes Seymour Hicks, Nancy O'Neal and Rosamund John.

The Secret of the Loch is worth watching, despite the monster being an unconvincing enlarged lizard.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
