Lake Michigan Monster

Comedy, Fantasy, Sci-Fi,

The eccentric Captain Seafield hires a crew of specialists to help him plot revenge against the creature that killed his father. After several failed attempts, Seafield is forced to take matters into his own drunken hands. What began as a simple case of man verses beast, soon turns into a rabbit hole of mysterious unknowns and Lovecraftian hijinks. Lake Michigan Monster -- banned in four lakes!

Programmer’s Notes: A late night feature for the late night feature crowd. We know for a fact that this one has had audiences in stitches so be sure to come with friends. The comic commitment of the entire cast will keep you laughing, but the visuals of this Lake Michigan Monster are going to keep your attention. This isn’t a hunt for Moby Dick. It’s much, much more ridiculous than that. Come aboard for this cult hit in the making!
