Creative Loafing

Forget the usual Transylvania or London settings: This horror flick has the distinction of being set in scary Mississippi.

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

A movie that suggests that not just the chickens but the locust-monsters inevitably will come home to roost in a postbellum South -- a 'Heart of Dixie' -- haunted by its violent, bigoted past.

PopMatters

The Beast Within is an above-average monster movie with good actors and a sometimes comprehensible plot.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

It's a frightfully silly and insignificant horror film, whose only virtue is in the makeup.
