The Beta Test
The Hollywood industry is a dark toxic arena full of mistrust, competition, and sensitive people. With The Beta Test, the film is a Hollywood satire that explores the deep underbelly of sex and this industry.
Here’s a brief synopsis of The Beta Test:
A married Hollywood agent receives a mysterious letter for an anonymous sexual encounter and becomes ensnared in a sinister world of lying, murder, and infidelity in this scintillating satire.
The film stars Jim Cummings (Thunder Road, The Wolf of Snow Hollow), Virginia Newcomb (The Death of Dick Long, The Office), PJ McCabe (The Wolf of Snow Hollow), Kevin Changaris (The Wolf of Snow Hollow, Thunder Road), Olivia Grace Applegate (Euphoria, Dirty John), and Jessie Barr (Sophie Jones, Too Long at the Fair). Jim Cummings and PJ McCabe both wrote and directed the movie.

Hollywood is a melting pot of conflicting ideas ranging from the Me Too movement to the Woke culture. The industry is an easy target to be an entertainment satire.
The film is in good hands with up-and-coming director/actor Jim Cummings after his cult-favorite films of both Thunder Road and The Wolf of Snow Hollow. His style of storytelling, cinematography, and humor will resonate with audiences quite easily. It will certainly be a comical perspective on this touchy subject in today’s era.
IFC Films has The Beta Test opens in select theaters, on digital platforms, and on VOD on November 5.
