That being said, the transfer to Blu-Ray is AWESOME. The picture is STUNNINGLY great! The sound quality is equaly as good. Seeing some of said features, while they didn't need said Blu-Ray treatment, are also equally well done. And having the Movie score/soundtrack, while not necessarily a feature I usually go for with most collections, was very neat to have. I wound up driving to work listening to it. Overall I give this 3 Disc Collectors Edition an A + (Amazon Rating of 5 Stars)
The only reason, and I mean the ONLY reason, I am giving this Film a 4 Star Rating is the simple fact that I don't find this film as good as his other work. Like "Zombie 2" or "House By The Cemetary". But please don't take the 4 Star rating as a reason NOT to buy this Edition. By all means, I truely feel this Editon of Grindhouse's "The Beyond" is EXCELLENT. And is well worth the money to purchase it. If you like Fulci & enjoy is work (or just simply enjoy Italian Horror Genre Films), than by all means, this Edition by Grindhouse is one of the supior editions I have bought. I personally am glad that I bought it & am enjoying it.
Many people hail Lucio Fulci's The Beyond his masterpiece though I would have to disagree with that and go with Don't Torture a Duckling, but The Beyond was a solid flick in the career of Lucio Fulci, which is best remembered for the crazy amount of gore, which believe me this film has plenty of. While I did enjoy The Beyond as I've gone back and watched some of Lucio Fulci's movies from the 70s I've sort of lost patience with his splatter flicks. While I still enjoy The Beyond and some of his other movies from the splatter era, but when compared to such movies as Don't Torture a Duckling, The Psychic and even Zombie his later work fails a bit in my opinion. But with that said The Beyond is still a solid movie by Fulci.
The new DVD released by Grindhouse Releasing is the same released a few years ago by Anchor Bay. Anchor Bay released two versions on DVD. They released a standard DVD with very little in the way of extras and they released a limited edition tin chock full of extra features. Grindhouse Releasing has re-released the limited edition tin (without the tin case) and normally I would give a negative review due to it being the same exact disc. But the reason I'm giving this DVD release such praise for one reason; the Limited Edition is now long out of print (same for the standard DVD).
Getting yourself a copy of The Beyond isn't easy to do that goes for both the Tin and standard DVD and if you are lucky enough to come across either you'll have to shell out a lot of money.Read more ›
The Beyond (Lucio Fulci, 1981)
Many hardcore fans of Italian horror cinema consider The Beyond to be Lucio Fulci's best film; more than one will likely opine, if you ask, that The Beyond is the finest Italian horror film ever made. While that's probably stretching the case more than a little (I still prefer Fulci's raw, almost unbearably campy Zombie), there's a whole lot to be said for The Beyond as loads of fun. Without doubt, it is one of Fulci's brightest moments. (Note that all description below is from the uncut version on the Anchor Bay limited edition DVD, and as I've never seen the cut version released to theaters, some of what is described below may not sound familiar to those who have already seen the movie, which had a theatrical re-releases in 1998 as Seven Doors of Death.)
The Beyond takes place in the Louisiana bayou country. It opens with a scene in 1927 detailing the brutal lynching of Sweik, an eastern European of some sort who the natives believe has placed a curse on the town. During his lynching, Sweik protests that, in fact, he's the only person keeping the town from falling under the curse. Needless to say, they mob doesn't listen to him, or a very short film we'd have. We then skip to 1981, as our heroine, Liza (Fulci regular Catriona MacColl, seen most recently in the well-received 1998 film A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries), inherits the hotel where Sweik was staying at the time of his unfortunate demise. The place is haunted, especially Room 36, Sweik's room. As well, the basement is constantly flooded, and no one can figure out why. A plumber is dispatched to find the source of the water, and in his attempt he instead finds the source of the hauntings.Read more ›
