KILL ME, PLEASE KILL ME... BEFORE IT S TOO LATE Late one full moonlit night, a woman stands alone on the roadside waiting for her husband to return to their broken-down car. All of a sudden she s pounced upon, dragged into the dark woods and savaged by a barely-glimpsed assailant. But this is only the beginning of the terror in The Beast Within... Seventeen years on, and the devoted parents of teenager Michael are at their wits end. Their son lies in a hospital bed, his body wracked by a mysterious illness. With doctors unable to offer any diagnosis, Michael s desperate... parents are forced to seek out the answer themselves by digging up traumatic past events and confronting the true nature of their son s conception. The Beast Within stands apart from other creature features due to its decidedly grim tone the scenes in which the monster violates his victims proved too strong for some critics and standout transformation sequence to rival the likes of An American Werewolf in London and The Howling. Add to that strong lead performances from Paul Clemens and Ronny Cox (Deliverance, RoboCop), alongside a stunning score by the late, great Les Baxter, and you have yourself one absolute beast of a monster movie!
