Delivery: The Beast Within is a 2013 American found footage horror film directed by Brian Netto from a screenplay by himself and Adam Schindler. It was formerly known as Delivery. It stars Laurel Vail (The Night Caller – short), Danny Barclay and Rob Cobuzio.
Kyle and Rachel Massy, a young couple who agree to document their first pregnancy for a family-oriented reality TV show. The production spirals out-of-control after the cameras capture a series of unexplained events, leading Rachel to believe that a malevolent spirit has possessed their unborn child.
Delivery is told through the show’s abandoned and unaired reality footage, as well as testimonials from friends, family and crew members, providing a first-hand account of the Massys’ tragic story…
” … makes such great use of modern-day conventions and sentiments and uses those tools to take the story in different and unexpected directions. The film maintains a high level of tension and just the right amount of all-out scares without going overboard. It’s engrossing and unsettling in all the right ways, and it proves that in skilled hands, the “found footage” style need not be reduced to a gimmick.” Alex Koehne, Twitch
“The final moments of this film are so intense, so frightening, and so real that even though you know it’s a movie, you’re going to be fooled by the reality of it all. The trailer below doesn’t do the film justice, as it makes the film feel like it’s a Paranormal Activity riff and while the haters will dismiss this film immediately, Delivery is more effective than the last three PA films combined.” Ambush Bug, Ain’t It Cool News
” …the film’s strong production values and above-average acting put to good service throughout, really come up trumps in terms of delivering (sorry) a concluding act that could easily “go the other way” in less-capable hands, but borderlines on knock-your-socks effectiveness here.” Ryan C., Trash Film Guru
The film had a limited US theatrical release on May 30, 2014.
