Storyline

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 Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Not waving but drowning - and how!
22 September 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

No-one (apart from Troma) actually sets out to make a bad film, but it's hard to believe that anyone involved in this lumbering underwater turkey actually thought they were onto a winner. In the small, undistinguished canon of Loch Ness films, it makes LOCH NESS and even the truly dire OH! WHAT A WHOPPER look like CITIZEN KANE.

See bottom-billed Brian Wimmer in his first lead role since LATE FOR DINNER as something or other (anthropologist/documentary maker - it's hard to tell: his character is solely defined by wearing a cowboy hat). See Lysette Anthony in her worst performance to date (!!!) as a TV producer whose every other line of dialogue is 'UN-believe-ABLE!' See that guy who played the villain/Village People lookalike in COMMANDO play a Scottish harbourmaster - badly - with one of the most unconvincing sets of false teeth ever committed to celluloid. See a film so incredibly dull that even Robert Foxworth took his name off the credits. See Patrick what-happened-to-my-career Bergin in the Robert Shaw role take on the monster with only a spear, a kilt and a face painted in blue woad a la BRAVEHEART. See the same three CGI shots of the Loch Ness monster reused more than 30 times. See just how boring a low budget exploitation movie can be - the old English phrase flat as a witch's tit springs to mind. Not funny, tragically, but deadly, deadly dull - even UPN or Fox 11 wouldn't show this one. Shot entirely on location in Los Angeles without any Scottish actors whatsoever, hopes for an unintentional and deliriously demented laugh-in of LIFEFORCE dimensions are cruelly dashed.

The film was the cause of some embarrassment to Scottish Screen during its pre-production: although notoriously unco-operative to local productions, they bent over backwards to accommodate a location scout by the American producers, laying on hotels and even a helicopter for the recce. Unfortunately for the government quango, the producers got so much stock footage for free that they didn't need to return to Scotland at all, leaving them with a lot of egg on their faces.

Incidentally, US DVD collectors are getting a raw deal on this one - the UK DVD, bearing the film's original title THE EVIL BENEATH LOCH NESS comes with a poe-faced documentary (with the costume designers explaining that their comprehensive research stretched to renting a copy of BRAVEHEART from Blockbuster - and meaning it!) and trailer and is priced at around $7: for $17.99 US viewers don't even get to laugh at the people who made it. US viewers have to settle for the director's cut of the film.

The search for a worthy successor to LIFEFORCE continues.
