The Beyond

The Beyond

Directed by Lucio Fulci

In this gore classic, a woman inherits a hotel built over an entrance to Hell. But when she starts to renovate, the gates get opened, bringing forth enough demons, killer spiders, ghosts, and evil zombies to make a grand reopening highly unlikely. The middle film in Lucio Fulci's "Gates of Hell Trilogy" is considered one of his best by fans, thanks to some of the most extremely terrifying and gory sequences in horror history. Chopped by censors in 1983, it took nearly 20 years and Quentin Tarantino's help before the film saw a proper uncut release in the U.S.

There are those that would argue with me about this, but I think this is Fulci's masterwork. Gory, moody, atmospheric, with one of my all-time favorite ending shots in all of cinema. If you're looking for a conventional horror film with a straight ahead and easy-to-digest narrative, look elsewhere. If you're looking for apocalyptic cosmic horror that operates on dream logic with a side of a guy being eaten alive by spiders, do yourself a favor and watch this immediately

The movie's only weak point would be the plot and acting is the plot everything else is good so far. The reality manipulation is great but it's effective to know exactly what's the cause. The best I can come up with is "The Curse"

Acting was kind of poor, but it's an eerie movie with some interesting concepts, though the plot leaves something to be desired. My favorite aspect is the score.

Spiders and bugs of any kind terrify me. Had some really good jump scares.
