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
When speaking of how the company funds itself, they say that they bought stock in AT&T when it was $.04 a share. The stock certificate shown, however, is for International Telephone & Telegraph, which is a completely different company. See more »
great writing, playful cast and funny movie; vampire humor at it's best.
What's better than one Ronalds Brother? Two Ronalds Brothers. Oh, and don't let me fail to mention the great writer, playful cast and, for lack of a better term, FUNNY movie. There was considerable buzz surrounding NetherBeast Incorporated at the Phoenix Film Festival seemingly due to the recognizable names involved. But that simply wasn't the case at all. The buzz came from the audience who seemed to thoroughly enjoy the film. I was, personally, very excited about the Phoenix Film Festival this year because of the lineup. I got an opportunity to see a few of the films and NetherBeast Incorporated, hands down, stole the 'show'. I had heard they had a good showing at the Dallas festival so was intrigued. With witty and comical characters, such as Darrell Hammond's Turner, Steve Burns' Otto, Bob Rue's Bunyan Pritchett and Cathy Rankin's Jewel, the movie bled with refreshingly lighthearted vampirical humor. And who doesn't love a little vampirical humor??? Not only was the film original, but the players (in real life) were approachable and are genuinely deserving of the favorable recognition they seem to be getting. I know that I, along with my friends, thoroughly enjoyed the showing and look forward to experiencing this cinematic playmate again when it gets picked up for national distribution; which I have no doubt it will.
'NetherBeast Incorporated' has a fresh take on vampire lore. In the film, the vampires or NetherFolk, as they prefer to be called, are just like you or me. Except they eat human flesh. They're not monsters, nor do they kill their dinner. There are plenty of people dying these days to not have to do that. While the NetherFolk all work at Berm-Tech Industries, they also pretty much live, eat and breathe in the building. The film centers around this concept and delights in the overall design; including the original script, score, and visual satisfaction that we don't often see with first time feature length directors and producers. Right on Ronalds Brothers and thanks for the 90 minutes you've created.
