I know that the title for this article looks like it was taken straight off of the Weekly World News or some other grocery store rag, but I assure you that it pertains to a movie.

No, really, a horror movie.


Well, it looks like another independent film director, in this case, Paul Della, has chosen to explore what kind of mayhem can happen when man tries to play God.

And what generally happens when someone tries to play God?

um.......bad stuff?


To be persice, a government funded scientist creates a half-man-half-lizard who goes on the warpath in a small town.

Here is the synopsis:

A small mountain town is terrorized by a half-man, half-reptile creature when renowned geneticist, Dr. Gino Conti, contracted by the Defense Sciences Office to develop a top-secret hybrid animal, pursues personal experiments in an effort to reconcile his tragic past. An entertaining sci-fi thriller with plenty of action, drama, humor and bits of gore, Lizard Boy raises questions about modern genetics while harkening back to the monster movies of old.

Della describes his film as a “sci-fi tragicomedy”, which seems to fit the bill considering our "Lizard Boy" is a poor outcast....with wicked ninja skills.

A lizard-ninja? Are we sure that this thing didn't come from the Weekly World News? .....yeh, we checked.

  1. It sounds like a pretty classic horror movie to me, at least that much I got from the plot. But yes, I can understand why it would raise some questions related to genetics, although that would probably not be the first thing I would have thought of. All in all, I think it's going to be a nice movie to watch.
