‘Beware the beast within’
Uncaged – aka Beast Within – is a 2015 American supernatural horror film produced and directed by Daniel Robbins from a screenplay co-written with Mark Rapaport.
It should not be confused with the 2008 film Never Cry Werewolf, which was re-released in the UK by High Fliers in September 2015 as Uncaged. Similarly, it should not be confused with The Beast Within (1982) or Delivery: The Beast Within (2013).
Orphaned as a child in the wake of a grisly tragedy, Jack was raised alongside his cousin and best friend, Brandon. At age eighteen, however, Jack’s otherwise uneventful life takes a sinister turn when he’s suddenly plagued by a series of bizarre sleepwalking episodes.
After repeatedly waking up in the woods naked with no memory of the night before, Jack straps a camera to himself to document his behaviour—and discovers a shocking truth: he is the unwitting heir to a monstrous family legacy of savagery, slaughter, and unrelenting horror from which death may be the only escape!
Reviews [click links to read more]:
“Beast Within is a pretty film but lacks a well-told story to really grip the audience. If they story was stronger and the tone didn’t fluctuate between serious and comedic, then this might have turned out better than it did. Hopefully the next film by Daniel Robbins can bring a good story to match his impressive visuals.” Christopher Stewart, UK Horror Scene
