An increasing number of people are dying mysterious deaths in the dark waters of Loch Ness, victims of the famous monster. But what other mysteries does the Loch hold? What about the monster’s egg and the insane scientist who’ll do anything to exploit it? What secrets does the sunken Nazi plane near the monster’s lair hold, and why will the military do anything to cover it up?

Is there anything more terrifying than The Loch Ness Horror (1982)? Absolutely. Regardless, the Grue-Crew head to Scotland via cinema (actually, Lake Tahoe, California . . . sigh) to explore the creature below the surface of Loch Ness. Maybe Chad has it right, “Drowning in a sea of terrible movies…!” With silly puppet monsters, directed by self-proclaimed “schlockmeister” Larry Buchanan, the film includes sad effects, a meandering plot, and questionable acting. Could this be a cult classic? Only Jerry Chandler knows for sure.

Every two weeks, Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1980s podcast will cover another horror film from the 1980s. The next episode’s film, chosen by Bill, will be Dario Argento’s Tenebrae (1982). Oh, yeah.
