A 1981 Italian southern gothic supernatual horror film directed by Lucio Fulci and starring Catriona MacColl and David Warbeck, the plot follows a woman who inherits a hotel in rural Louisiana that was once the site of a horrific murder. Turns out, it also might be a gateway to hell. It’s the second film in Fulci’s ‘Gates of Hell’ triology.
Following its release, reception of The Beyond was polarized. It’s been praised for its surrealistic qualities, special effects, musical score and cinematography, but note its narrative inconsistencies. It’s ranked among Fulci’s most celebrated films and has gained an international cult following.
