Arrow Video have released THE BETA TEST in the UK on a 2-Disc Limited Edition Blu-ray featuring a whole host of extras.
Eyes Wide Shut meets Office Space, The Player and Black Mirror in THE BETA TEST, the acclaimed thriller from Jim Cummings, creator of Thunder Road and The Wolf of Snow Hollow.
A ruthless, manipulative, and soon-to-be married Hollywood agent receives a mysterious letter inviting him to an anonymous sexual encounter. After some uncertainty he accepts, but euphoria turns to paranoia as he becomes ensnared in a sinister world of lies, infidelity and murder.
Strikingly shot and with pitch-perfect performances that will make you squirm in your seat, THE BETA TEST is a stylish, scathing satire of preening toxic masculinity, the dangers of technology, and the hollowness of Hollywood success.
