Films: Lizardman (2012)
Location: River/Forest/Civilized Area
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: The concept of the lizardman is really cool, honestly. A sapient being that combines the best elements of man and reptile? Sign us up! Just be sure to tell us whether the designers confused a lizardman with a gillman first. Otherwise, we're going to be disappointed.
History: Lee County, South Carolina had a bit of a problem. Lurking near the streams of Scare Ore Swamp was a lizardman! Thankfully, it was captured by zealous hunters/researchers hoping to probe it for its secrets. But when it was brought to their base in Los Angeles, it almost immediately escaped, and went on a small rampage.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: After escaping a second time from an even flimsier set of restraints, the lizardman is seemingly brought down for good when someone shoots it in the back. However, it's perfectly fine, and menacing the new turf with gusto.
Powers/Abilities: Can heal from near-fatal wounds and break free from steel constraints.
Weakness: Heavy artillery.
Scariness Factor: 2-It's so painfully obvious that the lizardman here is merely a guy in a foam rubber suit hastily put together to the point where it just looks like a colorful suit of armor if anything else. Also, all of its kills are hastily done with blood effects you can find in a standard video editor. High productions, there are not.
Trivia: -This is, as of this writing, the only film directed by Peter Dang, who has spent most of his career in the art department for things made for TV.
-There is indeed tales of a reptilian living in the real Scare Ore Swamp in North Carolina. Beginning in the 80s, sightings of this elusive creature have been met with a lot of scrutiny. Like a lot of other cryptids, really.
