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.
The soundtrack comes in one of those cardboard/paper sleeves,and not in an actual case. The music has never sounded better, Grindhouse
really put in the work in the CD as well as the movie. Once you open up the actual BluRay case(which is of the same type that Criterion uses for their Blurays), you'll see not a reversible cover but a complete Lucio Fulci filmography. Nothing too interesting for a longtime fan, but useful if The Beyond is your first Fulci film.
The movie is what matters,and it looks really good. All the colors looks vibrant(well as vibrant as a movie about doorways to hell can be!), and I didn't notice any imperfections. I've never owned any of the previous versions, but the image looks really sharp on my 40 inch screen.
The menu is mostly static, with a picture of Emily in the front, and a static-y hotel in the background(the music that plays is the main piano theme). Most of the extras are on the second disc, but the first does have the color version of the pre-credit sequence(you're given both german and english audio options). You also get a mini collection of trailers for the Beyond, along with tv spots(yes, you do get a trailer for the rare "7 Doors of Death" edit of Fulci's classic,which tries to sell the Beyond as some kind of slasher flick). The best extra here however is the wonderful commentary with Catriona MacColl and the always awesome David Warbeck. He really sounded like he had fun recording it.
The second disc is where the main extras are. The menu background image is of the Book of Eibon, with more of Frizzi's music playing (the same music when Emily first opens the book in the film). You get Interviews, Still Galleries, and Grindhouse Releasing Prevues.Read more ›
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 ›

If you are into Zombies and gore then this is your movie. I always go tentatively when it comes to Italian Horror as sometimes my first viewings are edited releases. Read morePublished 29 days ago by Pulpman
A very dark and ultra gory horror movie!
Overall I enjoyed it I just wished it went into more detail about the ancient book Eibon along with Schweick the painter. Read more
