Lizardman (US-2011; dir. Peter Dang) is a new independent B-monster flick that is rapidly heading toward release. Clearly inspired by The Creature From the Black Lagoon (and old monster movies in general), Lizardman tells a story of cryptozoological revenge and monstrous, “dragged-out-of-its-natural-environment” rampage:
Billionaire Bill Hansen seeks revenge by capturing his nemesis, the scaly crypto-creature known as the Lizard Man. Hansen wants to prove to the world that the Lizard Man really exists. A group of scientists, lead by Professor Reeves examines this creature. Reeves realizes he has a chance for fame and fortune and so convinces Hansen that the Lizard Man needs to be brought to Los Angeles. During a press meeting, the creature breaks out and wreaks havoc on the people of LA.
