Kill the Beast: Director’s Cut

Presented by Kill the Beast

It’s 1973. Welcome to the worst film never made. Thankfully, there’s only one scene left to shoot.
The fire has been contained, the wigs have been sterilised, and the star has been replaced after The Accident. Surely, nothing else can be waiting in the dark...
Award-winning comedy captains Kill the Beast return with their brand-new show:
Noises Off meets The Exorcist, Carrie meets Singin’ In The Rain. Combining live-film, original music, more wigs than ever before, and a problematic monkey, Director’s Cut is a fast-paced, utterly silly and spine-tingling adventure of haunted Hollywood hilarity.
