In this outrageous black comedy, a soon to be married Hollywood agent receives a mysterious letter inviting him to an anonymous sexual encounter and becomes ensnared in a sinister world of lies, infidelity and murder. The Beta Test is a stylish yet scathing satire of preening toxic masculinity and the hollowness of Hollywood success. Directed by and starring indie favourite Jim Cummings (Thunder Road) and PJ McCabe.
"There’s plenty of gleefully mean-spirited fun to be had here, preferably in a cinema and shared with as large and as vocal an audience as is legally permitted" - Screen International
"A delicious fermentation of Hitchcock, American Psycho, and Entourage, The Beta Test is a seductively dark and deviously amusing film that titillates and tantalises." Kat Huges, Film Disclosure
