This December, the citizens of Tinseltown are going into BEAST MODE, thanks to distributor Devilworks.
The man at the center of this tale is a washed-up Hollywood producer who once had it all. He thinks he’s landed a potential comeback with his new star in the making — until that star gets whacked by a car and croaks. The producer has a quick idea…he’ll use the actor’s stunt double as the real actor, and to really sell it, he’ll cover up his death and have the man pose as the actor completely! It might work…if the double had the exact face.
Then the producer is given an offer from a strange salesman…a jar of “miracle cream” that changes appearances. It seems to work on the stunt double, but what the producer doesn’t know was that the change comes from within….the users become “what they truly are inside” and in the double’s case, he happens to be a jerk who turns into a monster!
It gets worse….more people than just him used the cream, and Hollywood is now under attack from angry beast men! Insert hacky joke about how “they’re barely worse than the lawyers in that town anyway” here.
Beast Mode stars Leslie Easterbrook (Devil’s Rejects), Ray Wise (Road to Redemption, Robocop), James Hong (Blade Runner, Big Trouble in Little China), James Duval (Gone in 60 Seconds, Donnie Darko), and C. Thomas Howell (The Amazing Spider Man, LBJ). It was directed by Chris W. Freeman and Spain Willingham, and it’ll be released digitally in North America by Devilworks Pictures December 1.
After accidentally killing his lead star, a has-been Hollywood producer turns to an ancient herbal elixir, in the hope that it will save his career. He makes a dark deal that unleashes a band of bloodthirsty, shape-shifting, ferocious beasts on LA.
