'The Pizzagate Massacre' film takes a conspiracy theory to the next level; Now getting death threats

A filmmaker is fielding death threats after creating a low-budget satirical look at the "Pizzagate" conspiracy taken to the extreme. A review from Vice News describes The Pizzagate Massacre as an examination of interdimensional lizard people controlling humans from the basement of a pizza parlor.

The film is from John Valley, a filmmaker out of Austin, Texas, and paints protagonist Duncan Plump as "a long haired and serial-killer glasses-wearing militiaman," who "asks a friend to do research on the reporter. He wants to help, but he doesn't trust her yet," described Vice.

"This film sets out to explore the toxic nature of conspiracy theories and fantastical thinking writ large," Valley said in a statement. "Using elements of the original PizzaGate narrative, the film attempts to shine a light on those who weaponize misinformation for profit and those who carry water for such pursuits."

While the film addresses the way extremists "weaponize misinformation for profit," Valley takes the story to the extreme with every character deeply enthralled with the likes of Alex Jones and other far-right personalities. Duncan even thinks he could be the son of cult leader David Koresh. He's featured as someone deserving of empathy for being so easily manipulated into believing the most absurd ideas imaginable.

1. $10 says those death threats are coming from Chinese / Russian troll bot farms.

Unacceptable no matter which way you look at it.
