* ''Beyond Loch Ness'' is a movie about the titular creature... in Lake Superior. Yes, you read that right. The identity of the creature is revealed to be a "plesiosaur". Note the quotation marks, as it's entirely possible that this is the least realistic plesiosaur in fiction. Not only does it have the typical inaccuracies, like the swan like position of the neck and laying eggs, this one goes further. For one thing, it doesn't have flippers, it has amphibian like legs. In fact, it spends most of the movie on land. It apparently has no problem with this. Despite plesiosaurs being mainly fish eaters this one, of course, seems to have a taste for humans. To top it all off, it doesn't even look like a plesiosaur, not even the inaccurate ones!.

There is also often a plot that goes along with these beasts that decks the halls of SyFy Originals. Some idiot starts the plot by becoming kelpie chow. Some low-paid fringe scientist, with fewer peer-reviewed papers and far better looks than any normal scientist, will go or be forced out there to investigate alongside a gruff, no-nonsense local and a wacky comedy sidekick, daring to find the truth while being threatened with ridicule and/or group buggery by the other locals.

* The specific name of the Loch Ness Monster, ''Nesisteras rhombopteryx'' ("the monster of Ness with the diamond shaped fin") was devised in the 1970s by the naturalist Peter Scott. It's an anagram of 'monster hoax by Sir Peter S'.S', though Scott denied this was intentional and fellow Nessie researcher Robert H. Rines (who took two supposed pictures of the monster) pointed out the anagram could ''also'' be read as: 'Yes, both pix are monsters, R.'
