A Hitchcockian black comedy in the spirit of 'Rope' and Agatha Christie's 'Ten Little Indians' that begs the question can murder, if done well, be considered art? An art whose medium is one of flesh and bone.

An offbeat hilarious comedy with a quirky twist on the vampire tale set in modern day corporate America. Employees of Berm-Tech Industries, Inc. have kept the family secret for a long time. For years it has been business as usual, until the top vampire in charge contracts a dreaded disease, becomes senile forgetting that he s a vampire and starts killing off other vampire colleagues. A human efficiency expert and "Dead Mike's" replacement are invited to work at Berm-Tech but soon they discover that some of their associates are not what they appear to be. Written by
After Pearl sees the staff eating human flesh she calls Otto. Just before the split screen wipes you can see a big blue paw print on the clock on Otto's desk. This is a nod to his previous gig as the original host of the children's show "Blue's Clues". See more »
A good film but it does not result completely satisfactory
The best way to describe Netherbeast Incorporated is like this : The Office with vampires.It results to be an unusual but entertaining combination although the potential could have been exploited better.The idea behind this movie is pretty ingenious and,thanks to the very good cast there are many sympathetic and funny scenes.Plus,this movie makes some incisive commentaries on the corporative mentality of our days,with the vampires subtext working as a metaphor of many situations from an office.But,while the screenplay offers many positive elements,it also shows many negative elements.The story does not always flow naturally and it sometimes feels diffuse.The mythology the screenplay uses to explain the origins and methods from the vampires results arbitrary and unnecessarily complex.It seems screenwriter Bruce Dellis had the necessity of inventing new rules and dug conditions with the only function of adding tension and drama to a formula which would have worked better with a simpler focus.I had previously mentioned the cast is very good.Veteran comedians Darrell Hammond (known for his extraordinary parody of Bill Clinton in Saturday Night Live) and Dave Foley (famous for his participation on the excellent sitcom Newsradio) bring excellent performances in this movie,but I think the members from the cast who mostly stand out are Steve Burns and Amy Davidson.There are also some famous actors in this movie (Robert Wagner,Judd Nelson and Jason Mewes) but their performances are short on time as well as on enthusiasm.They just did not seem to be too interested on their characters.I liked Neatherbeast Incorporated and it kept me entertained.But its potential could have gone more far away and the fails from the screenplay I mentioned avoid me to stay completely satisfied with this movie.Still,this film deserves a recommendation.
