Trailer and Poster Debut – Jim Cummings’ Satire of Hollywood Toxicity “THE BETA TEST”

Opens in Select Theaters, on Digital Platforms
and VOD on November 5th
“A hilarious skewering of the shallowness of the movie industry and the paranoia and mistrust that afflicts the guilty. Cummings and McCabe’s film touches a raw nerve with sharp, funny, awkwardly prickly provocation.”
– Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist

“Indie-movie triple-threat Jim Cummings (Thunder Road), along with his co-writer and co-director PJ McCabe, have delivered a seriously dizzying, unnerving conspiracy thriller.”
– David Fear, Rolling Stone
