“What would you have me do…he’s my boy!”
A loving father will do anything for his child and in this short film from writer/director
, Peter Dukes Michel must choose. It should be an easy decision, but for Michel, nothing is as it seems, when it pertains to his sons’ affliction during full moons. The ending will leave you screaming…"NO…it can’t be over!”
BEAST was made on a shoestring budget of $600 and given more of a budget and some fine tuning of minor details, then Dukes would have a potential thriller on his hands.
My recommendations would be do a sweep of the area before filming, so objects that do not belong, in the film are removed before filming. Research clothing styles and make sure they coincide properly with the story’s time period. Pay attention to dialect, so that it flows steady. I am not raking the director over the coals; I am mentioning some details that showed themselves to me, while watching the film. I still think the storyline is good and the acting was good and set-up the scenes well and yes, I would be like to see a full feature with these characters and their fine actors.
