"Captain" Seafield (Ryland Brickson Cole Tews), a lighthouse keeper with no nautical experience, wants to avenge the death of his father by the hands of the Lake Michigan Monster, and thus enlists the help of weapon's expert Sean Shaughnessy (Erick West), radio expert Nedge Pepsi (Beulah Peters), and former NAVY man Dick Flynn (Daniel Long) - but at first his plans to track down the monster - to have Dick dive for it - amount to little, and when he suggests for Dick to dive in the nude in case the monster's a lady, that only produces ... an egg. Now Seafield and company destroy the egg, and that gets the monster mad - and eventually, that gets Sean killed. But Sean remains a restless spirit on earth bound to avenge his death, and suddenly Seafield sees himself on the run from Sean's spirit while still trying to face the monster. He summons his deceased dad's ghost army, but the monster rips them to pieces. So Seafield knows he has to face the monster on his own - but at their final confrontation, he learns a few inconvenient truths about his father and himself ...


Lake Michigan Monster is basically a very wild and anarchistic film, one that doesn't desparately try to make sense, follow logic or even reason, but has an anything-goes mentality to it, and doesn't take itself seriously at all. And while especially at the beginning the humour might seem a tad puerile, the longer it goes, the more the comedy drifts off into a nonsense realm that's reminiscent of Monty Python more than anything else and manages to create a world all of its own where things that shouldn't make sense make sense again and vice versa. Not your everyday movie perhaps, but a fun trip for sure.


This movie is featured on the Arrow Video Channel, which is available on Apple TV in the UK and US, as well as on Amazon in the UK.
