Your father's been acting up, where have you been?
I'm in a relationship, Mum. I can't be there all the time.
Sweetheart, you can't just change the rules because someone's shown an interest. Maybe I've been too soft on you.

A psychological drama that steadily ratchets up tension, Beast is best entered into blind. For those who need a little more persuasion, the story follows a young woman, a mysterious man and a series of unexplained killings in a small seaside town. As both their past mistakes come back to haunt them, is all as it seems?
As Michael Pearce's debut feature, Beast is an assured first effort. Just when you think you know where it's heading it makes you question your assumptions and you'll be second guessing until the very end. A pleasant surprise that's definitely worth checking out.
