Co-written by The Woman in Black‘s James Watkins, we have a lengthy synopsis for the once top secret The Loch, which is to be directed by Simon Duric for Altitude Film Sales.

Michael McKidd seems to have the perfect life a beautiful wife, two wonderful children, a high-powered job, all the trappings of success.

But, scratch the surface and things are not as they appear. His business nears bankruptcy and he has taken drastic measures to prevent anyone from finding out. With his life spiraling out of control, desperation is quickly setting in.

Trapped and fearing no way out he decides to take his family away to Loch Ness in Scotland, under the false pretenses of a family holiday. Driven to the brink, his real plan is to take their lives, believing they are better off dead than facing the shame of financial ruin and public humiliation.

But as he prepares for his family’s final moments, Michael’s plans are interrupted by something in the water. Lurking just under the surface is a malevolent creature, intent on terrorising the family. As their lives are pulled apart by dark forces beyond their control, a bloody struggle for survival ensues and Michael must fight to save his family from what lies beneath.

    Well…..hmm…..idk what to think, I’m fascinated with the legend of the Loch Ness Monster but this seems just like another monster movie that has nothing to do with the legend, I hope I’m speaking to soon about this but I am a little excited to see a scary version of the Loch Ness monster,I’ve been waiting for a movie to make me afraid of the water again and I really hope this is it lol.

    Seems an odd lead up to the monster’s reveal..wouldn’t he be glad that there’s a killer willing to do the dirty work for him? Sounds like they’re going to go a sappy “he discovers how much he loves his wife/family as he struggles to save them all are redeemed” route. I’ve said it before but just once I’d love to see a film in which the parent/spouse just says “you want to kill him/her? Go for it”

      Well let’s just hope you’re speaking too soon and the twist is that’s exactly what he does. The issues doesn’t come from the story a lot of times, Im pretty sure plots like that are discussed but studios are too afraid to go through with them. The Mist imo is great because they took a chance with a risky ending (the studio really didn’t want to).

    Hammer had a film called Nessie that they were supposed to make with ToHo back in the 70′s. Supposedly they had the creature made and just never made the movie. Maybe they get the rights to this and finally have their Loch Ness movie.

    I like the idea of this movie and it sounds like it could have a “Shining” vibe. At least its something different and not another lame haunting movie.
