A scientific expedition to Loch Ness runs into trouble when the group leader is killed in a mysterious diving accident. Soon after, when the unorthodox Professor Howell shows up to take over as leader of the group, more strange incidents and attacks start to occur. While Howell and TV producer Elizabeth Borden (who has been financing the team's work in exchange for exclusive footage of their discoveries) are busy investigating the source of the attacks, the body of an enormous sea creature washes up on the lake's shore. Obviously, this is the famed Loch Ness Monster, right? Perhaps not... Written by

None of the characters pronounces "Loch" properly, which is supposed to have a guttural sound at the end of it, and is not meant to pronounced the same as "lock". While English and American people might do this, Highlanders would not. See more »
I want that creature. I want it bad. 17 years bad.

To say this is a JAWS rip off does not do justice as to how bad this is , in fact the only compatant bits are the monster P.O.V shots stolen from the JAWS franchise . This is film making at its absolute nadir , it`d be impossible to make a film worse than this on purpose . Everyone has already commented the mistakes like the American ambulances and the god awful ( Non ) Scottish accents , the poor acting etc , but has anyone mentioned the goof that dynamite ISN`T freely avalaible in Scotland ? Or that the police uniforms aren`t the same ones seen in Scotland ? And has anyone pointed out how poor the dialogue is ?
" A lotta people want you out of here " Aye Scottish film goers obviously
" You not wanted round here here " Aye definately scottish film goers
" I`m really sorry for what happened " No doubt said by everyone involved in the making of this tripe
" I could do better with a ( A high St brand of camera ) " No doubt said by everyone who`s seen this tripe . Also notice the product placement . So that`s how this film was funded
" We need something that`ll keep us in work " Subtle post modernist excuse for making this tripe
" We don`t need any help round here " Oh no ? What about acting lessons , screenwriting classes , film school etc ?
" Why don`t you go back to the States to find bigfoot or Elvis Pressley ? " Maybe they could also find a decent script , director , editor , producer and actors while they`re there
" Sheep got a headache ? " Oh right like the Welsh , Aussies and New Zealanders the Jocks are sheep lovers are they ? Doubt if anyone in this film would have the guts to say that in Scotland especially after watching this tripe it`s obvious they have no idea where Scotland
PS A flock of sheep with headaches could have made a better film than this
