The movie "The Water Horse" looked very familiar when I saw the preview for it a couple weeks back. I knew I grew up reading a children's book with a very similar story. Some of the older members here may know what I'm talking about, but I wanted to see if anyone had the same reaction I did.

The actually creature doesn't really look the same exactly, but the story is pretty close as far as I can see.

I know the movie is based off the book "The Water Horse". I was just saying it's 'funny' how close the two stories are.

@redragon

yeah, the 13th warrior was a total rip from Beowulf. I believe even some of the same names were used, but I didn't know that he denied using Beowulf as a reference.

It reminds me of this anime movie titled "Coo: It Came From The Deep Sea", which came out in 1993.

I'm not sure if Michael "Jurassic Park" Crichton denied using Beowulf as a reference but the book that he wrote, "Eaters of the Dead", which became the basis of the movie "The 13th Warrior", was described as a "deconstruction" of the Beowulf lore.
