Val Lewton taught filmmakers back in the 1940s that you didn’t have to show the monster right away to make an effective horror film. It appears that first time filmmaker Mike Lenzini has pulled a page — and a trick or two — from Lewton’s playbook with his creature feature, Beast: A Monster Among Men.
Midnight Releasing has tabbed Aug. 20 as the DVD debut date for this chiller about five friends who ignore warnings about campers going missing in the Six Rivers National Forest (filmed in around Duck Creek, Utah) and head off into the wilderness for a weekend of relaxation.
During the course of the night one by one they go missing until only two remain — can they trust each other, or is there something else lurking in the woods?
Bonus features include a film commentary option.
