The Beast Inside: A Different Kind Of Horror

The Beast Inside, co-written and directed by Jim Towns and produced by See You Next Tuesday Films, is not only a self exorcism themed film, but a psychological thriller delving into aspects and that are not usually seen so clearly within the average horror flick. The film stars Vernon Wells (Mad Max, Weird Science), Sadie Katz (Scorned, The Bill Murray Experience), and Laurene Landon (Maniac Cop, Airplane ll), with executive producers, Mario Reyes, John Pasquale, Jimmy Star, and Eileen Shapiro By a wondrous anomaly the motion picture score was composed and performed by world acclaimed soundtrack phenomenon Randy Edelman (Last of the Mohicans, My Cousin Vinny).

The story follows Anne (portrayed by Sadie Katz), in her desperate attempt to rid herself of a family inherited demon who has recently killed her mother (portrayed by Laurene Landon) and is now threatening to kill her followed by the possession and demise of her young son. But that’s only the beginning. The film exams topics including addiction, pedophilia, family values, and religion, which at times proves to be darker than the theme itself.

Laurene Landon is beyond superb in her portrayal of the bedeviled, possessed and dying mother of Anne, hostage of the Beast, enthralling the audience to feel her painful destiny while achingly conveying the true nature of what horror set out to be. Vernon Wells is the master of his role as an excommunicated priest with the darkest illness and a tortured soul. Sadie Katz as Anne plays a starring role as a tragic victim of both the supernatural and torment of the addictions of everyday life. Her strength and vulnerability is emotional and honest and gives us permission to watch her embrace her reality by admitting her imperfections.

Supporting roles were also outstanding. Anthony W. Preston in the role of Daniel (Anne’s husband ), a loving husband and father both haunted and hopeful and believable. Denise Milfort (the Reiki healer), refreshing, unique and affective. She clearly celebrated a rise from the audience. Danelle Von Visger who played Meredith (Daniels sister) was huge attributes to the believability of the film. I felt myself fighting the urge to slap her on several occasions. John Pasquale in his acting debut was a plausible and convincing transient, and simple minded motel manager adding comedy to the darkness. Little Sam played by Presley James Crosby (Anne’s young son) was both professional and authentic. Ron Russell looked exquisite as the doctor. Kim Marie Austin was a believable therapist and the beast itself Victoria De Mare was scary as Hell.

On the highest plane serialist Randy Edelman killed it! His jet black, cataclysmic music collided with the beautiful innocence and vulnerability of the Anne’s presence. All trust comes from vulnerability and risk and nothing would count as trust if there were no possibility of betrayal. While his music took us to the depths of hell, it also introduced some of the most irresistibly sensitive, compassionate and courageous music while allowing us to embrace the honesty of what we heard and saw. Essentially Randy turned the soundtrack into the soul of the movie, exposing the feelings of the characters, the actions, the tension and even the horror. Without the music the fear factor is incomplete. His music enhances the ambience and was crucial in foreshadowing different elements of a plot and the interpersonal relationships of the characters. The music provided the audience an emotional bond with the action on the screen,

The Beast Inside will be officially released in the new year however the soundtrack by Randy Edelman can be acquired earlier than that, we will keep you updated.
