“Reminiscent of the early work of John Waters
– Jennie Kermode / Eye for Film

“Love letter to B-grade 1950s monster movies”
– Joshua Speiser, Film Threat

“Far too wild and original to be defined as a simple parody of creature features”
– Jessica Scott / Nightmarish Conjurings

“You need to just hold your breath and dive in”
– Richard Whittaker, The Austin Chronicle

“Truly a hidden gem that perfectly encapsulates what low-budget filmmaking can be in the digital era”
– Robert Lee III, Collider


“Does offer up plenty of surprises and fresh ideas. It’s like a parody of the forties and fifties monster B-movies, even completely shot in black and white. And the writer/director/star of the movie Ryland Brickson Cole Tews is clearly a fan of these, he just adds in a whole lot of crazy comedy. —

A sea captain brings a team together – well, three people and himself – to find a monstrous sea creature that has recently killed his father. But that just scratches the surface (despite a even crazier back-story) as we venture on a land and underwater fantasy adventure that rarely slows down. There’s swords, there’s fights, there’s pirates, there’s ghosts, there’s of course, monsters and a whole lot more. —

It’s a very quotable movie. The acting performances from a really likeable cast are very good, a perfect fit for the style of movie. Strangely like a mix of the Naked Gun franchise and a Bam Margera movie. — The excellent lighting and flashiness of it all is like a feast for the eyes, while it just continues to throw stuff in your face. There’s some really creative things going on with Lake Michigan Monster.” 
– Alain Elliott / Nerdly
