The Beta Test
Hollywood is collapsing. Ghastly murders haunt the night. Frenetic conflicts mark the days. A storm is breaking over talent agencies looking for new investors and ideas. As the battle rages on, Jordan Hines, an agent who is about to marry, receives an anonymous letter inviting him to a mysterious sexual rendezvous. Jordan’s world of lies and sinister streams of digital data begins to fall apart. Who has sent him this letter? And who will be waiting for him behind the closed door? His life is at a crossroads: die of fear, or die of desire.
Written and directed by Jim Cummings and PJ McCabe, The Beta Test is a horror film that blends incendiary comedy with brutal political commentary. Cummings and McCabe make sure the storytelling matches the main character’s journey which is exciting, explosive and borders on a nervous breakdown. At the same time, viewers are called upon to pull off the wonderful twofold feat of being trapped inside the thickening web of deception and mysteries while simultaneously, like Jordan, looking for a way out.
