Fulci’s The Beyond Turns 35 Today!

04/29/1981:

Lucio Fulci’s 2nd film of his ‘Gates Of Hell’ Trilogy was released in theaters. The Beyond has easily become one of the Italian “godfather of gore’s” greatest masterpieces. Set in the bayou around New Orleans this supernatural haunted tale is surely one for the ages!

Like a fine wine, this film only gets better with age. The film’s climax still being one of the genre’s best endings to date… If you haven’t had the viewing pleasure, you should make plans to rectify that!

Hey there boils and ghouls! My love of horror films came on a dark and stormy night.... ....Truthfully, it probably happened in 1980-something during a sunny day when I was 5 or 6. That movie was JAWS. I had never been so terrified to go swimming and I live in a land-locked state! I have been a Horror Hound ever since. Having seen hundreds of films, some good and some downright dreadful, my love for horror cinema has grown stronger than ever! I have a Sci-Fi nerd wife, which allows us to share movies with each other(while she puts up with MOST of my movies). A couple of my favorite directors are Lucio Fulci and John Carpenter. Contributing here at T.H.S and being able to work with these other folks will be a treat I look forward to. I will share secrets after a few drinks and I also enjoy long romantic walks in dimly-lit cemeteries. My fave top 5 films are: 1)Dawn Of The Dead (Original) 2)The Thing (Carpenter's Remake) 3)Zombie 4)Texas Chainsaw Massacre (O.G.) 5)Friday the 13th pt IV: The Final Chapter Stay Scared! -ZombiSurvivor
