Something Wicked This Way Swims by Expat
British Columbia's legendary lake creature is about to make its cinematic debut in a mockumentary entitled,"The Beast of Bottomless Lake"!
According to Provost Pictures' website, the movie, which is scheduled to begin filming this fall, will feature the following storyline:
[A] group of academics seek to unveil the legendary lake serpent, the Ogopogo. But it is the demons of their so-called leader, Paul Moran and the mismatched team-members that filmmaker Ernie, focuses on with his additional documentary camera — a spy camera — to record the teams 'private' moments.
After the failed promise of a stay at a luxurious resort, they find themselves billeted in Paul's loopy parents' basement. The hi-tech sled on loan from the Royal Commission on the Loch Ness is lost overboard on its maiden voyage. They have to share their research vessel with a sombre wedding party with (literally) shocking results and a day trip leaves one team member in jail on drug charges. With every turn, they get further from their goal and closer to a breakdown. The team is ripped apart.
Paul pulls everything back together with a surprise video of the creature itself. A press conference is quickly organized but little do they realize that this night holds no fame and fortune — only anger and humiliating betrayal that makes the rest of their expedition to Lake Okanagan seem like summer vacation.
A short teaser of the mockumentary can be found here.
