The name Bill Oberst, Jr. was all I needed to see to make The Beast this weeks pick for Short Film Saturday. Any horror fan worth his salt knows that Oberst is one of the most reliable and talented actors working today and brings any film he appears in to a whole new level and The Beast is no exception. That’s not to take away from the performances of Peter and Alexander Le Bas as both are excellent. Add great directing and music and you have the makings of a great short film. Enjoy The Beast!
