Beast (15)

Drama, Thriller, Mystery

British mystery thriller in which a woman from a small town is attracted to a mysterious outsider.

The critical consensus

Grisly and gorgeous in almost equal measure.

****(*)Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 25/04/2018

A very arresting debut with a primal intensity about it that atones for the occasional clumsiness and contrivances in the plotting.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 25/04/2018

A strong debut from director Michael Pearce, with a gripping performance by newcomer Jessie Buckley. So much more than just another serial-killer movie.

****(*)Dan Jolin, Empire Online, 23/04/2018

It’s an auspicious debut, confidently directed, brilliantly acted and unsettling to the last frame.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 27/04/2018

A twisted, unsettling thriller that is determined to keep you on your toes.

Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 27/04/2018

The result is a smart and sinewy psychodrama that maintains a delicate balance between its warring elements right through to the final frames.

****(*)Mark Kermode, The Observer, 29/04/2018

The last forty minutes limp home at a glacial pace as the film loses focus, intrigue and believability.

Peter Callaghan, Review Sphere, 04/05/2018
