Aging diva Vera wants to honour her deceased filmmaker friend Jean-Louis Jorge by shooting a script he never got around to making into a movie. Gathering his old creative partners in the Dominican Republic, she gets to work on the campy vampire musical “Le Palace”. But then things start to go wrong: The lead actress is found dead and Vera becomes convinced Jorge is haunting the shoot. Featuring Geraldine Chaplin and Udo Kier in fine form, HOLY BEASTS is an homage to the very real Jorge (1947–2000) wrapped in a burlesque tale of death and the supernatural.
