I’m fortunate to have first seen the Beyond in theaters at a midnight showing back in 1999 or 2000. Grindhouse releasing was doing their theatrical tour to promote their remaster. I wouldn’t have been older than 12 or 13 at the time, it was an event my father took me to that I won’t ever forget!
The Beyond isn’t just a classic Italian zombie film, its also the peak of Lucio Fulci’s filmography. Fulci has influenced generations of horror directors and helped influence the modern zombie movie.
Fulci’s films were characterized by graphic violence and gore, and over the top special effects. Also notable for their use of atmospheric settings and moody cinematography.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been over thirty years since Lucio Fulci unleashed his masterpiece of horror, The Beyond. This film is a masterpiece, and it is still one of the most effective zombie movies ever made. Set in Louisiana, the film follows a woman who inherits a hotel that has a dark past. She soon discovers that the hotel is one of the seven gateways to Hell, and she must fight for her life to survive. If you’re looking for a horror movie that will make your skin crawl, then you need to check out The Beyond. It’s a true classic of the genre, and it is not to be missed. Fulci’s film is a brutal and bloody affair, but it is also one of the most atmospheric and suspenseful zombie movies ever made. If you’re a fan of horror, then you owe it to yourself to watch The Beyond. You won’t be disappointed.
