    Haha, its cool. Its easy to miss things on here. I was going to check this out on YouTube soon to decide if it's up my ally or not. Seems interesting enough but it's also not getting an abundance of love here either.

    It´s actually one of the better slashers from the era.
    Seems like the movie have gone below the radar for most fans of the genre, since it has never had an official release since the VHS came out 30 years ago.
    But all that will change now :)

    Beware though that the old VHS transfer is REALLY dark and muddy.
    If you like Just before Dawn, I bet you will enjoy this one too :)

    Yup, and they have a beautyful HD transfer that has been showing on MGM-HD :)
    Hoping that Scream will release it in a near future.

    That's why one of the main actresses has gone out of her way to distance herself from it. I hear she went on to become a teacher and was just too damn proud of the intellectual content. Actually, I'm going to take umbrage to an apparent misogynist who masquerades as a PC clown to impress people with his pseudo intellectual though no less retarded ramblings.
    'There is a world of fucking difference between treating a human being's struggle for life as though they are still a human being and treating that person like they are a prop.' Jesus Christ, please take your medication. I guess that applies to Hostel, I Spit, Wolf Creek and every other film that has fallen under the category of 'Torture Porn'. By virtue of being protracted the torture and rape scenes become an admirable struggle for life, wow, how noble of the filmmakers.
    Even the makers of this film acknowledged in the Last House companion book that the purpose was to make a low grade exploitation film that would make a suitable double feature for other low grade efforts that populated cinemas at that time-many of them porn grade efforts.
    You like to hear yourself talk don't you? *YAAAAAAWWWWWWWNNNNN*

    Just listened to the 2nd commentary on beast within today. amazing how off on the years these directors and writers are. They were talking about The Howling and the one guy said it came out around 86..

    Just watched the Shout! Blu of Beast Within, and I must say it looked fucking awesome!

    now why Horace doesn't shoot the beast in the head as soon as it sticks it's tongue out I'll never understand.

    And are we to assume the reason Billy Connors became the beast was purely from eating human remains?
