Sherlock at the Loch

Posted by: Nick Redfern on August 24th, 2013

Sherlock Holmes

My latest Lair of the Beasts article at delves into the world of a certain movie-cryptid, and begins like this:

“Now and again I’m asked what my favorite monster-movie is. In conversation, people often assume it’s something like the original version of King Kong, or perhaps Godzilla, or, maybe, The Creature from the Black Lagoon. Well, it’s none of those. Nor, thankfully, is it one of those awful, cheap, made-for-TV productions filled with D-list actors and over-sized sharks and crocodiles that are continually thrust upon us.

“Actually, my answer is very different. I would have to say that my all time favorite creature-feature is a 1970 production, The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes. To which, many might reply: ‘Say what?'”

    An excellent movie, Loch Ness Monster or not.

  2. hoodoorocket responds:

    That’s a good movie, but then you can’t go wrong with any Billy Wilder film…

  3. Kopite responds:

    I think I saw this once, a long time ago. Haven’t seen it since though.

    Best ‘monster movie’ for me though will always be King Kong. Best movie where there is a ‘monster’ of sorts though is Jaws.

  4. corrick responds:


    Interesting that you mention King Kong. In “Abominable Science” the release of that movie is linked as a major factor for the modern day beliefs in BOTH Nessie and Mokele Mbembe as well.

    And fairly convincingly.

    Great choice. Doubt many people today can understand how much that movie stunned people. And is still an eye-popper even today.

Sorry. Comments have been closed.
