Beast Within tells the story about a lead gaming developer, August (Steven Morana), who is looking forward to finally meeting his online girlfriend, Cheyenne (Holly Deveaux), at a launch party of the gaming app he developed. The festivities are interrupted by a priest (Colm Feore) who condemns the party guests as “marked for the beast.” Convinced it’s a publicity stunt, the party-goers disregard the protest until a dead body is found. August and Chyenne, along with the remaining guests, become players in a deadly version of the game. All are questioning who within the group could be the ferocious killer, as everyone is a suspect.
A Build Character production in association with Little Axe Productions and High Star Entertainment, Beast Within was produced by Steven Morana and Nic Izzi (The Chaperone), the producer of the cult thriller, 1BR, that recently went number #1 on Netflix within 5 days of being released.
Executive Producers are Amy Williams (Rock, Paper, Scissors and Mothers and Daughters) Spero Stamboullis (Warning Shot), and Bruno Marino (Gridlocked). The gore and creature scenes in Beast Within were done for the majority as practical effects giving a very realistic raw feel. They were crafted by award-winning special effects make-up studio, The Butcher Shop FX Studio. The entire soundtrack of Beast Within contains music tracks by the gifted rising hip/hop artist Arya Safakish (aka Afta Hill and Safakash). He has a dedicated fan base of over 100k fans on Spotify alone.
