Los Angeles, CA  – Jack Ayer’s killer gorilla feature THE RISE OF THE BEAST,  starring Arthur Boan, Sarah T. Cohen, Sian Altman, George Nettleton, Heather Jackson, Rob Kirtley, and Pete Jeffries, has been acquired by Uncork’d Entertainment for a December release. Click HERE to watch the exclusive trailer. 

The film, equal parts creature horror and action flick, was produced by Proportion Productions (EXORCIST VENGEANCE, JURASSIC ISLAND, THE CANDY WITCH).

Synopsis: A group of activists breaks into a corporate facility they know unsolicited animal testing has been taking place. They discover unimaginable horrors but don’t realize until they’re captured the true extent of what it is they’ve been experimenting with. In a race against time to survive, they must escape friend, foe, and beast if they mean to get out alive and expose this to the world. Watch out for the beast.

“A killer gorilla! Action-packed thrills! Great special effects! The Rise of the Beast really does have it all,” said Keith Leopard, President Uncork’d Entertainment. “Congo meets Predator in one very fun and frightening winter release.”
