Alright time for another gross out film for my Horrorthon! It's based off an H.P. Lovecraft short which is pretty cool. Despite Stuart Gordon being a horror master this only the second of his I've seen with the other being Re-Animator. I have also seen Honey I Shrunk the Kids. Brian Yuzna also co-wrote that. He isn't the best, but he has his moments. Dennis Paoli also wrote in Re-Animator. It has ... read more

Like any patchy horror firmly ensconced in its typically oblique premise and perfunctory reliance on style over substance, "From Beyond" expands on H.P. Lovecraft's story and applies the tacit, condensed conceit of its source to an amorphous, low-budget visual smorgasbord of gore and special effects. Although it never quite reaches the level of quality achieved with "Re-Animator", the film success... read more
View all From Beyond reviews
Obsessive scientist Dr. Pretorius (Ted Sorel) successfully discovers a way to access a parallel universe of pleasure by tapping into the brain's pineal gland. When he is seemingly killed by forces from this other dimension, his assistant, Dr. Crawford Tillinghast (Jeffrey Combs), is accused of the murder. After psychiatrist Katherine McMichaels (Barbara Crampton) and detective Bubba Brownlee (Ken Foree) take the case, the trio risks a return to the other world in order to solve the mystery.

" Date: 8/25/2019 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-Watch Note: While I do think Re-Animator is a better movie, I still love From Beyond. This movie is awesome from start to finish. The story could have been written better, but the atmosphere and the special effects are amazing. This movie is almost 35 years old, and they still look fantastic. It's a shame that we don't get movies like this anymore. I highly recommend this movie if you haven't seen it yet."

“Like any patchy horror firmly ensconced in its typically oblique premise and perfunctory reliance on style over substance, "From Beyond" expands on H.P. Lovecraft's story and applies the tacit, condensed conceit of its source to an amorphous, low-budget visual smorgasbord of gore and special effects. Although it never quite reaches the level of quality achieved with "Re-Animator", the film successfully maintains the somewhat belted thematic verve, clinical imagery and decent performances of its predecessor through slick visuals, concise and propulsive narrative pacing and an underlying commentary on science, i.e. exploring the possible link between an overactive pineal gland and the inducement of hyper-sexuality and audio-visual hallucinatory illness. "From Beyond" does veer off into no-ho” read more

TDcore's Horror Journal 2019: April (23 movies items)

" This one is a cult classic amongst lovers of 80's horror cinema, Lovecraft and Stuart Gordon, and for good reason. The concept is taken from one of Lovecraft's most underused stories, and one of those most ripe with gruesome potential. The film that results is mostly reliant on special effects, but the effects work here is phenomenal, and more than compensates for the barebones plot. The cast is fantastic as well, with another high-energy performance from Gordon regular, Jeffrey Combs. An"

"I've been watching a lot Red Letter Media lately and the re:View- episode of From Beyond and Re-Animator finally made me really want to watch this and rewatch Re-Animator. So I ordered these on Amazon. I might like Re-Animator a bit more than this but From Beyond was really fun watch too."

Anyways let's see if this is worth the watch or simply an oddball that is nothing but gross.

Okay that was another hell of a weird body horror kind of movie. I mean that was to be expected though. I just didn't realize to what extent it would go. I have to say that I don't think there are many people who could eat while watching this movie haha. I can't” read more
