Editorial Reviews

On a luxurious estate in the Italian countryside, Francesco mourns his deceased lover. Soon pain and loss turn to madness and violence, as this troubled young man decides he cannot part with his love just yet. Excavating her corpse, he preserves her body with excruciating attention to detail. That, however, is only the beginning.

The Good:

I have been a fan of this movie since I first saw it on VHS as BURIED ALIVE 20 years ago or more. Despite some crazy lapses in logic (as typical for Italian horror films of this era), this movie is effective, horrific and disgusting even today. Director Joe D'Amato also made hardcore porn films, and BEYOND THE DARKNESS aka BUIO OMEGA - even more so than his first horror film, ANTHROPOPHAGUS - is very much like hardcore horror. Very little is left to the imagination. Since the effectiveness of a film like this relies heavily on the special effects, it gets high marks for a couple of very convincing effects, notably the embalming sequence and the scene in which one woman has each of her appendages removed with a meat cleaver. Even with gore effects like that, there is something to be said for a film that can make the viewer most queasy simply by showing a woman sloppily eating her dinner.

A beautiful Italian villa adds to the film's atmosphere and feelings of isolation. Also to be said about the film itself is that it features an excellent latter-period score by the Italian rock group Goblin.

The Blu-Ray disc is a significant upgrade over the previous Shriek Show DVD (also included in the package). Anyone looking for an upgrade in picture quality will no doubt agree that we have one here in what is obviously a brand new HD transfer. Colors are natural and vibrant and the grain is very film-like. The audio track is also very much improved over the DVD, resulting in the music, dialogue and sound effects much less muffled without sounding as if heavy noise reduction was used.

A good bit of depravity from one of Italy's masters, Joe D'Amato, I recommend this only to those with nerves of steel.

This company , shriek show was putting some of their titles on blu ray. Only sadly they stopped doing this and have left the blu ray market mostly. Ok, they do have a better definition: barely. The color is not restored though so the type of film here looks dull on blu ray. But it's better than the dvd version. HOwever there are few scratches and dirt damage that some other blu rays have almost in every scene, they are rare in this release. This was shot on cheap film in 1979. So like I said it's got a dull unrestored look, the color was never great on this one, but it was better when it came out back then. Ok, now for the movie, this was a low budget horror film from joe d'mato, and it's a decent one. It shocked people so bad back then that it caused outrage. They claimed that the movie used real dead people in it!! IT DID NOT!, it's a horrific story of a nercrophilliac who embalms his dead girlfriend. THe actress playing the dead girl also plays her living twin so that was good news for here. THis is dubbed into english which is fine. Their are interviews and a few other extras. But shriek show please do some more restoration work on your blus please. But at least there's no lines on this one.... The movie is four star for horror fans, who love italian gore flicks. NOn horror fans of this type of movie ,well you won't buy this one anyway. This is a well done horror film though , it's not a action horror film so don't think it is. It moves at a nice creepy pace and that's a good thing. Horror isn't always about fast moving stories.
