Danny Madden

‘Beast Beast’ explores young adulthood through a brutally honest lens


“Beast Beast” is Danny Madden’s feature-length directorial debut and stars Shirley Chen, Jose Angeles, Will Madden, Kron Moore, and Daniel Rashid. In the vein of movies like “Short Term 12” (2012), “The Babadook” (2014) and “Thunder Road” (2018), “Beast Beast” is an adaptation of Madden’s short film “Krista,” which focuses on Chen’s titular character, her rage, and how she finds a parallel between the volatility of the emotion and her passion as an actor on stage.
