LYON PRODUCTIONS ANNOUNCES LITTLE CREEPS
by Brad Leo Lyon

On the slate for this March is Lyon Productions' next feature length film Little
Creeps
. Set to begin principal photography, Little Creeps is a Comedy Horror
movie with a loaded cast including Lee Arenberg (Pirates of the Caribbean 1,2,3
/Waterworld/Dungeons & Dragons), Robert Z'Dar (Maniac Cop 1,2,3
/Mobsters/Tango & Cash), Dustin Diamond (Screech from Saved By the Bell), and
Jake the Snake Roberts (Wrestling Legend).

Just because something is a myth doesn't make it fiction. That's a philosophy that
Professor Vern Drake (Arenberg) believes when it comes to the Demonicron, a
book said to open the gates of hell. After locating the book, he decides to conjure
the demons the book contains to do his bidding and get revenge on those who
ridiculed him.

However, when he only manages to translate half the words required to summon
them, he only gets half size demons. Now the demons are anxious to prove that
though they are half the size, they are double the trouble!

At the helm is Brad Leo Lyon who will be directing his first horror genre  film since
Beach Vacancy which is scheduled for a DVD release this March.
