I guess I am making something wrong, but I highly suspect that the 'murder' is the word dragdrag.

When using dragdrag as transitive verb, we may feel more natural when the direction context is given. For example,

the monster is dragging me to the milk box.

the monster is dragging me to the milk box.

So we may feel more natural when the sentence is written as

I felt being dragged down by a beast.

I felt being dragged down by a beast.

One potential explanation for the oddness in the sentence is that feel is a be-like verb and a be-like verb is strange when followed by a be or be-like verb. However, I suspect whether it is strange.

It is not rare that a be verb followed by a be verb, like

I am being fried in a pan.

I am being fried in a pan.

And I think that it can be easily transformed to something like

I feel being fried in a pan.

I feel being fried in a pan.

However, I guess that we can check some composition collections or corpora to see whether feel + beingfeel + being is rare.
