From Beyond - Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
FROM the team that brought you the gloriously perverse Re-Animator comes the equally surreal horror classic From Beyond, which makes its long-awaited debut on Blu-ray thanks to Second Sight Films.
Based on another H.P. Lovecraft adaptation this deranged gorefest is directed by Stuart Gordon (Stuck) and produced by horror supremo Brian Yuzna (Society). It comes to Blu-ray in stunning limited edition packaging, along with a DVD release on February 25, 2013.
An obsessive scientist Dr. Pretorius (Ted Sorel) and his assistant (Jeffrey Combs) have invented ‘The Resonator’, a device designed to stimulate the brain’s pineal gland and expand the powers of the mind.
The machine gives them more than they bargained for however when a parallel universe inhabited by slimy creatures ready to prey on humans reveals itself.
Pretorious meets a sticky end, returns as a grotesque, deformed being and all manner of depravity ensues.
Bonus features include: Stuart Gordon on From Beyond; Gothic Adaptation – An interview with writer Dennis Paoli; The Doctor Is In – An interview with Barbara Crampton; Monsters & Slime – The FX of From Beyond; Director’s Perspective; The Editing Room – Lost and Found; Interview with the Composer; Commentary with Stuart Gordon, Brian Yuzna and Jeffrey Combs; Photo Montage; Storyboard to film comparison; Includes English subtitles for hard of hearing.
