THE BEYOND (3 Disc Collector's Edition) (1981)
10 Feb 2015
Grindhouse Releasing

Vu's The Beyond Limited Edition DVD
I'm probably not going to re-buy The Beyond on Bluray, since I was pretty happy with my DVD release (in a tin box).  If I didn't already own the movie, I would definitely want to get this on the best resolution via Grindhouse Releasing.  The 3 Disc Bluray retails for $39.99 but on sale for $24.95 via amazon.com which again may be too much for an older film.  The main selling point for me is usually audio commentary, which I do not think the upcoming Grindhouse Releasing will have.  However, the first 5,000 units will feature a glow in the dark cover.... which is very tempting, but I think the pricing is too expensive for now. 

The seven dreaded gateways to hell are concealed in seven cursed places...

And on the day the gates of hell are opened, the dead will walk the earth!

From legendary Italian horror master Lucio Fulci comes the ultimate classic of supernatural terror. A cursed hotel, built over one of the seven gateways to hell, becomes a malevolent abyss that begins devouring both the bodies and the souls of all who enter in a graphic frenzy of gory crucifixions, brutal chain-whippings, eyeball impalements, sulphuric acid meltdowns, flesh-eating tarantulas, throat-shredding demon dogs and ravenous bloodthirsty zombies. THE BEYOND is a towering achievement in hair-raising, mind-bending cinematic terror!
