A mysterious and unstoppable hunter is spreading terror in the once-peaceful region around Lake Superior, and no man can survive its swift and devastating attack. As the hungry beast gobbles down the locals one by one, the inhabitants begin to realise that the monster not only is hiding in the lake's deep and silent waters but also there are two of them. Now, nearly three decades after the near-death experience that left him scarred for life, the grizzled cryptozoologist, James Murphy, arrives in town, following a hunch, and if his fears come true, he'll have to face, once more, his gargantuan, scaly nemesis. Can Murphy reveal the secret of the lake and destroy the beast beyond Loch Ness? Written by Nick Riganas

Beyond mediocre...
26 April 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I wanted to like Beyond Loch Ness, as I liked the idea. And I have to say that and the acting, which is not great but at least adequate, are the only redeeming values of the movie. Plus at least it is better than something like Warbirds, which also had Brian Krause(and he was the sole redeeming quality of that movie). Other than that, it was a mess. The special effects are terrible, with Nessie especially abominable in look and movement, the editing is haphazard, the colour schemes right at the beginning is much too grainy and the gore is lame, not disturbing in the slightest and as cheap as the effects. The film is also full of clichés not just in the stereotyped characters but also in the cheesy dialogue and the often tedious and over-familiar story. All in all, a beyond mediocre movie, more like lame. 3/10 Bethany Cox
