I know, you’ve been seeing Lizard People for years now, they’ve been reported in the papers since the forties and a lot of people think the elite power base are actually grey scaly things, but this time the Beverly Hills Lizard People are coming in the form of a new horror comedy.
WTF!? Beverly Hills Lizard People is inspired by the “legend that Lizard People live under the ground in Los Angeles (as reported in the papers in 1944!)… not to mention rule the world!” Yes, the Illuminati, the aliens on The X-Files, Alec Baldwyn in those Hulu ads, the Gorn on Star Trek, they are all lizard people. If you stop a video of almost any pundit on any news channel the right way, with bad image copying, their eyes all look reptilian in certain frames.
According to the official synopsis:
“Fashioned in a similar tone to Slither and Scream, Beverly Hills Lizard People will tell of an ancient race of shape-shifting Lizard People from the depths of the Earth who return to the surface to reclaim what was once theirs: Beverly Hills.”
“Disturbed from their ancient slumber by the excavation of a cross-town subway, the ancient reptilian masters of a faded empire strike out to reclaim what was once theirs: Beverly Hills.
“Ground zero for their invasion? A once popular, though now faded, hotel, currently the site of a reality TV cooking show competition, and directly overhead of their secret city. Can the collection of unlikely contestants — ambitious, backstabbing, and determined — stop the shape-shifting Terrors From below before the reptilian ravagers achieve their goal of conquering first Beverly Hills and then the world?”
Produced by Cthulhu Crush Productions’ Jody Wheeler, who wrote the screenplay, and Steve Parker, Beverly Hills Lizard People begins filming in the New Year.
Jody Wheeler is the writer-producer-director of the 2014 mystery-thriller The Dark Place, the writer of HEAT WAVE and the producer of JUDAS KISS and the forthcoming WFT.
Steve Parker directed, shot and edited the music video of Tom Robinson’s “Loved By You,” produced the shorts “Begging for Change”, and “Barbie Boy,” and the feature films JUDAS KISS, THE DARK PLACE and the forthcoming WFT..
