Beyond, The (1981)
Movie Review by The Undertaker

Beyond, The (1981) The holy grail of Fulci fans has always been The Beyond. It's his best movie in many ways, not my favorite, but still his best overall. It has all the gore, story, atmosphere, and music any fan could ever want. The shitty Seven Doors to Death video release that was available over here sucked, the Japanese laser was excellent and hard to find. I know I personally was gonna pay $200 for a laser once long ago. The deal fell through and I had to keep watching my grainy, dark looking dub. Fortunately, The Beyond finally got it's due and now there's DVD's and lasers for everyone to see. Even a nice tin boxed set is out now for those lucky few who get one before they sell out. Nice to see a movie finally get the attention and treatment it deserves. Widescreen is the only way to go with this one and all his movies really. The 1st U.S. video version mentioned above was horribly butchered, worse than even the victims in the film itself. It's a collectors' item only, I've never even bothered to watch the whole mess. It's pointless. The Beyond is a dreamlike film, or should I say nightmare-like. The story flows laced with some of the most memorable scenes in any horror film. It's not a straight zombie flick or supernatural movie, but combines some great aspects of both. It even has the feel of a haunted house picture some times. I've seen it many times and still notice something else every time I watch it. It requires multiple viewings to 'get it'. That's why it's not my fav. You have to put in the effort to really appreciate Fulci's zenith. I won't even get into the ending. I'm just happy the film is now widely and easily available for all to see. You younger folks are lucky not to have to trade and scrape and claw to get your hands on a decent, uncut print. If you think a gore film can't be haunting and have a really cool story, then see it. If you feel Argento and Bava were the only stylish directors to bring screams from Italy, then see it. If you've never seen this movie, watch Zombie and City of the Living Dead, then see it. Then you'll understand what all the fuss was (and is) about and why Lucio Fulci's name lives on forever in horror film history. So much gore, but so much more.
