Storyline

Alex, who has been estranged from his family, returns to confront certain "issues." Aside from his day-to-day woes, his biggest trouble is that he transforms into a violent, feral beast - and he's been given this curse by someone in his family. Meanwhile, another "beast" named Tim is being pursued across the German countryside. These similar people with different stories intertwine, the body count mounts, and a shocking truth is revealed in their wild, blood-soaked showdown. Written by Cinema Image Productions

Timo's film certainly is a 'Beast' all right...
13 September 2010 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

To refer to this unwatchable pile of dreck as a movie is to do it a great service. Basically a home video that they somehow got money behind to pay for a couple cameos, some gore, and a hilariously over-the-top musical score, BEAST's poor effort is made all the more funnier by the obscure director proudly putting his signature in the title.

This is a tough film to give a fair review because the audio and picture quality are so bad that it's not even easy to tell what is going on at any given time (if you bother trying). The film opens with two different shots of people in different cities blurting out long emotionless speeches Ferris Bueller-style into the camera (wow, I could watch this all day...). It's never made clear but becomes apparent that they're supposed to be talking to each other over a video phone or something! Things actually manage to go downhill from there. Judith O'Dea from NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD cameos with a few sentences into the camera (lame, easy way to get a cheap cameo - I know because I've used the technique before myself) in a similarly listless scene she is probably quite embarrassed to be associated with. And even though it's not like she's exactly a Shakespearean performer herself she comes off much better than the lion's share of the cast.

Fitting in with other German gore films like the works of Andreas Schnass and Olaf Ittenbach, this film looks like it put all its effort into (you guessed it) the fake body parts and blood. Unfortunately the mayhem is so badly shot and edited that the only enjoyment comes from the disassociation between what you're seeing and hearing. Werba's score is so overly bombastic and dramatic (complete with a full chorus of people screaming "BEAST!") and contrasts so sharply with the amateur hour acting and auto-focus home video that my main reaction was one of confusion mixed with amusement.

Truly though this film is just a dull experience and a pathetic attempt by a director better suited to just be an SFX guy for someone else who knows what he/she is doing.
