A boy finds an interesting egg. His curiosity leads him to protect it and want to figure out what will come out of it. He didn't realize that it would turn into something magical. The boy and the Water horse grow a strong relationship together in this wonderful story.Written by
The iconic photo shown in this film, taken by the "Surgeons" and purportedly showing a monster, was cropped to make the object in it seem big, but the unaltered photo shows a very small object in the middle of Loch Ness. If it's not simply a toy submarine with a "head" attached (as one of the original presenters allegedly "confessed" in the 1970s), then it could also be the forehead and trunk of a local circus elephant taking a swim in the lake when the circus was not performing.

In an early scene, Angus pulls out a first aid kit, and the bandage on top is labeled 'Telfa'. The film is set in 1942, but Telfa bandages weren't marketed by the Kendall Company/Curity until 1954. See more »
I thought this film a delight to watch. It offers much in the way of taking us back to when we were young and believed in The Wizard of Oz with all it's fictional characters. I thought this very well done and quite often asked my wife..."How did they accomplish that?" (I'm 80 and have had a career in electronics and am not senile...yet!) This film takes place in Ireland and in what might well be Loch Ness before WW II when the Army was on constant alert for anything that looked suspicious...even if they had to use their imagination to find things. A young boy of about 10 has become a close friend to the monster and proceeds to protect him/her. A coastal watch group was sent to the area to ward off German submarines, and decided the Water Horse was a submarine and proceeded to attack! I felt the film very clever in design and presentation. I especially thought the ending very delightful...don't miss the last 2 minutes of the film!
