4.0 out of 5 stars The Beyond or not?, 21 April 2004
This review is from: The Beyond [DVD] (DVD)
I remember watching this movie when I was young and thinking how superb itwas for the time, a day long gone when the video nasty was indeed a "videonasty". Over the years I forgot that the movie actually existed until Ipurchased it from Amazon. I re-sat through the movie and all thestorylines came flooding back. For its time it was a fine piece of cinemafor its gore and nastiness, but on a second and third viewing you canactually see how normal and average the movie actually is. There is notmuch of a story, and most of the plots do not get explained properly, youjust have to accept things for what they are, as in any Zombie flick. Nowfor the Zombies, anyone who has seen the 2004 release of Dawn of the Deadwill know how the Zombies move with lightening speed, and there is notmuch one could do to beat them en masse. But Fulci's Zombies from theBeyond would still be waiting to finish the "Hare and Tortoise" race. Itamazed me in this movie why the protagonists just didn't simply walk bythem and push them over, the zombies did look threatening with the typicalrotted zombie/newly dead zombie look, but as for their performance well itwas Zombie Comatoze. However the ending will either leave you saying"Wow, a Fulci masterpiece, as in the ending of Zombie Flesh Eaters", orthe ending will leave you saying "What the heck was that all about to endit there"...original, I think not? Endings like this are ten a penny onthe old Hammer House of Horror stories or the Twilight Zone. Altogether agood watch, but caveat emptor to the purchaser if he/she is expecting amasterpiece. One final thought as per the date of the movie, is that itwas a very good picture for its time, which for me is not anywhere in theleague of Flesh Eaters or the daddy of them all "Dawn of theDead...original"...now that is suspense....Enjoy none the less.
