UK genre specialist Jinga Films has added werewolf thriller Beast Within (originally titled Hunter’s Moon) to its burgeoning American Film Market slate.
The whodunit creature feature stars Steven Morana (Whiskey Business) and Holly Deveaux (The Mist) as a couple attending the launch party of their gaming app Werewolves Awaken, but when a guest is mysteriously found dead, they question who could be the killer, as everyone becomes a suspect and player in a deadly real-life version of the game.
Steven Morana co-directed this beastly flick with Chris Green (Zombie Werewolves Attack) and co-produced along with Nic Izzi (1BR) plays the timid tech genius turned action hero and his martial art background contributed to him doing all his own stunts during the confrontation with the werewolf.
The ensemble cast also includes Colm Feore (Thor), Ari Millen (Orphan Black), Alysa King (Slasher), Supinder Wraich (The 410), Art Hindle (Invasion of the Body Snatchers), and Katie Boland (The Bet).
The gore and creature scenes were crafted by award-winning special effects make-up studio The Butcher Shop FX Studio and the soundtrack contains music by rising hip/hop star Arya Safakish (aka Afta Hill and Safakash).
A Build Character production in association with Little Axe Productions, and High Star Entertainment, Beast Within was released in North America on September 8th by Stonecutter Media.
Amy Williams (Rock, Paper, Scissors) Spero Stamboulis (Warning Shot), and Bruno Marino (Gridlocked) executive produced.
