“We’re in his territory now…”

Beast (2022) released in theaters on August 19th 2022. The survival thriller film stars Idris Elba, Sharlto Copley, Leah Jeffries, and Iyana Halley. It runs for an hour and thirty-three minutes.

Dr. Nate Daniels and his two daughters visit their old family friend at a South African game reserve to help cope with the death of their mother. However, their journey takes a deadly turn when a surviving lion of a poacher attack begins stalking them.

Here is the trailer:

Characters to root for.

There is a small cast in this one, but I really liked every single character, which made me want to root for them all that much more. The film did a good job of balancing out the suspense and action along with the emotional content. It never overdid it and the pacing worked really well.

I was invested the entire time and I thought the moments between the family really helped the audience connect more with these characters.

The Cons:

Predictable at times.

I don’t know if it’s because I saw way too many previews for this one or because I’ve seen this type of movie before, but it followed the formula you would expect to see without ever wavering. That being said, I still enjoyed the ride. 

So am I in or out?

It was only supposed to be temporary…but when Olivia Crewe accepts a new position that seems too good to be true, she soon discovers that twelve other girls previously had the same job as her. Only none of them lasted for more than thirty days. No notice. Nothing…right before they mysteriously disappeared without a trace.

My supernatural thriller Girl Number Thirteen is out now! I hope you enjoy!
