‘You’ve been warned!’

Beware is a 2010 American slasher horror feature film Jason Daly (Creepy Crawly short; Scary Tales: The Return of Mr. Longfellow) from a screenplay co-written with Shawn Copenhaver. It stars Adam Leadbeater, Alex Livinalli, Lorena King, and Cecilia Huete.

The town of Shady Grove holds many dark secrets. Amongst those secrets is the sadistic tale of “Shane”, a boy who was tortured and chained to a tree as a youngster. Legend has it that for years he survived in the woods all alone until one day he managed to escape.

Now, damaged and broken, he wanders those woods in search of blood, with his trademark chains fused to his wrists. Despite years of tales and urban myths, no proof of his existence has ever been discovered, until five unsuspecting teens reveal the truth on an ill-fated trip…



“Fans of Friday the 13th films will most definitely get a kick out of this one with its pretty successful attempts to make both the killer and the kills iconic as well as gratuitous T & A. Beware doesn’t blaze new trails, but it does skip down well tread paths in an energetic and stylish manner.” Mark Miller, Ain’t It Cool News

” …I couldn’t help but wonder why Daly thought that we’d be even remotely interested in these people. Static scenes, characters who come and go at random, lousy gore, and a head-scratcher of a story result in a movie which will have you wearing out your fast-forward button. Beware indeed.” Mike Long, DVD Sleuth

Beware is overall a fun, old-school style slasher flick where you can just sit back and enjoy the carnage.  The kills are creative and the scene where Shane kills the girl wearing the walkman is extremely well-shot (it’s rather stylish and reminded me a bit of Brian De Palma circa Dressed to Kill).” Scott Shoyer, Anything Horror

” …there is always something of interest happening coupled with a few death scenes for good measure. The final act of the film provides viewers with the murder and mayhem expected and from a low budget film; the deaths are quite creative and graphic, the standout being death by Guitar Hero.” Troy Escamilla, Fright Meter
