Loch Ness Terror is a 2008 Canadian monster movie directed by Paul Ziller (Pledge Night) from a screenplay co-written with Jason Bourque. It was produced by Lindsay MacAdam and Kirk Shaw for Insight Film Studios. Also known as Beyond Loch Ness

The movie stars Brian Krause (Camel Spiders; Poseidon Rex; Plan 9), Niall Matter, Amber Borycki, Carrie Genzel, Don S. Davis.

James Murphy (Brian Krause) is a rugged cryptozoologist, who thirty years earlier, during a trip to Loch Ness, Scotland, had a fatal encounter with the fabled “Nessie” creature that killed his father, research assistants, and left James with a deep facial scar.


Thirty years later, James is hunting for Nessie, when his search leads him to the sleepy town of Pike Island, Ashburn, on Lake Superior. He encounters Josh Riley (Niall Matter), owner of a bait shop. Josh’s ex-girlfriend, Zoe, is going camping along with Brody and two others on a small deserted island on the lake.


Josh’s uncle, Sean, attempts to prove Nessie’s existence but is eaten instead. James hires Josh as a guide while his mother, Sheriff Karen Riley, eventually finds Sean’s remains. She begins to suspect that an underwater predator is on the loose…

“It got high marks for the intelligence of the cryptozoologist. I am fascinated by how characters can stroll into films nowadays and declare themselves, “I’m a cryptozoologist,” over and over again … Beyond Loch Ness is a fun ninety minutes of escapism, especially for the cryptozoologically-minded.” Crypto Mundo

“The main cast are reasonably good but some of the acting for the smaller parts is terrible. The film employs a lot of CG and sometimes it works reasonably well but for the most part it looks terribly fake. It is more fun than your average made for TV feature and if you like monster movies you might enjoy this.” Eat Horror


“No, it’s not a great movie and we probably can’t even call it a good movie with a completely clean conscious all things considered, but this was a movie that extracted the most out of the little it had to work with, it slid along at a nice pace, it was ridiculous, it was delightfully stupid and ultimately delightfully entertaining.” Film Critics United

“It’s got some genuinely-interesting moments, decent effects and overall good use of build-up.  A lot of the deaths are random- keeping Poor Bastards of Cinema able to run for at least a couple weeks straight- but it feels pretty natural overall.  I will say that one late-story twist makes the whole thing feel super-silly.” Mondo Bizarro

“I hate to admit this but Loch Ness Terror was a pretty fun, entertaining ride which certainly blasted the rest of the Sci-Fi Channel’s movies out of the water. It’s got plenty of Nessie action, has a decent pace and above all didn’t suck in all of the major departments.” Popcorn Pictures

“The Case Against – Nothing, unless you count bad acting, silly death scenes, jingoism, rampant product placement, and awful pseudo-science. But if you did that everyone in the movie industry would be out of a job.” Something Awful

“After a solid first half, the flick sorta gets bogged down when the crypto-zoologist comes onto the scene and starts hunting the monster.  The Nessie Cam POV shots are overused too and wear out their welcome pretty fast.  Still, it’s kinda funny seeing the monster kid from Sleepwalkers playing a tough-talking, cowboy hat-wearing, scar-faced crypto-zoologist.” The Video Vacuum
