Another Loch Ness Monster

The Loch Ness Monster (US-2005; short [15 min.]; dir. Benjamin Williams)

A terrible encounter with the Loch Ness Monster haunts a woman her entire life.

This short, but ambitious-looking film stars Dee Wallace Stone (among others) and won the soundtrack composer, George Shaw, a Gold Medal for Excellence at the Park City Film Music Festival in 2006 for Outstanding Achievement in Film Music Composition for Independent Film. The following short doco about him gives us a few glimpses of the monster.

Most of the information available on this film seems to centre around the composer, even this poster, which is, in fact, the cover of a CD compilation of George Shaw’s music for independent films.

As an addendum, Kaiju Search-Robot Avery discovered this clip, which YouTube poster Roger Bottoms claims he found in his grandfather’s garden shed, with the words 1936 – “Never Screened” scrawled on the film can. He claims Reg Bottoms, a newsreel cameraman in the 1930s, took other bits of film on subjects of interest to Fortean investigators, including one on Atlantis.

Skepticism is, of course, totally warranted.

    Well, I have no idea about the two ‘found’ films but “The Loch Ness Monster” film from Benjamin Williams looks fantastic. Hopefully it will be made available on DVD or in some other way soon. I can’t wait to see it!!

    Avery, sadly it’s unlikely Benjamin’s film will ever be released. It was originally made as his film school thesis, and intended to be used to promote and raise funds for his feature version of “The Loch Ness Monster.” But then Hollywood made “The Water Horse,” which has a similar premise of boy befriends Loch Ness Monster. It’s too bad, I was hoping to expand on my themes and score Benjamin’s feature version of “The Loch Ness Monster”.

    Thanks for coming on and giving us that information, George. Sad news — but, hey, one never knows. Similar premises never seem to stop Hollywood much…

    This is very sad news indeed. The little that we do get to see and hear of the film and it’s score look and sound beautiful. Who knows maybe one day it’ll be available for download or as an extra on a DVD for one of his or someone else’s movie. I must agree that similar themes barely stop Hollywood and just because it has a similar theme to another film doesn’t mean that it couldn’t stand on it’s own and be a very enjoyable film. Thanks for paying us the visit.

    Sorry if this is off topic but I’m thinking of buying this book. Curious if anyone’s has checked out the new book “Hell’s Aquarium” by Steve Alten? It’s about the ancient prehistoric shark Megalodon, which makes the current Great White Shark look like a gold fish. Check out the trailer below, pretty awesome:
