  1. msmichel's rating of the film From Beyond

    Gordon wound up following up 'Re-animator' with another H.P. Lovecraft adaptation which tested the limits of the MPAA with its extreme body horror. Barbara Crampton excels here with strong support from Ted Sorel and Jeffrey Combs. Sick and twisted material that is certainly for not all tastes but well worth seeking out for the horror maven. This unrated cut certainly surpasses the '86 release cut.

  2. Nick Schwab's rating of the film From Beyond

    Gordon's followup to Re-Animator isn't nearly as comical or entertaining, but it's much stronger in its story and creative visuals, despite the characterization being as two-dimensional. The subtext of lust and pseudoscience being equivocal to danger and addiction is more dimensional, while From Beyond isn't as effective in what it sets out to do as Re-Animator's smart-ass approach, the intention is much more mature.

  3. Levi Miah's rating of the film From Beyond

    From the cold opening to the final frame, this is just pure madness. The dialogue completely ignores the psychosexual elements and instead deals with them in a weird visually exclusive subtext that's possibly even more disturbing. The character arcs are uncommonly extreme and totally welcome. Not just a b-movie horror, there's definitely something else lurking beyond our initial perception. Grotesque and unsettling.

  4. ionosonde's rating of the film From Beyond

    plot is just average, but those effects! dang! one of the squishiest movies i've seen since existenz. the pink lighting is nice, and the characters change a whole heck of a lot over the movie which was interesting to see.

  5. Mathias Palmberg's rating of the film From Beyond

    A gooey and icky creature fest with a lean and effective script, a game cast and a clear sense of where everything is going. It might not be high brow filmmaking on any sort of level but the sheer craziness on screen and determination of the film makers has to be admired.

  6. Steve G.'s rating of the film From Beyond

    In which Jeffrey Combs does his best impression of helmet-less Robocop.

  7. Arctic Alamut's rating of the film From Beyond

    One of the few adaptions of Lovecraft's material that's actually good. The Thing meets Frankenstein, to give somewhat of a description.

  8. Renton47's rating of the film From Beyond

    Humans have a hard time conceptualising the mystical in cinema. This certainly does an excellent job of achieving the physical manifestation, but is severely underwritten when it comes to the thought process. It's a minor gripe when the film is this fun, with astonishing FX, excellent colour palette and willing cast. I wish I had this when I was 12.

  9. Diego Ravazzolo's rating of the film From Beyond

    That's a 3.5 stars. The movie is not so good, but it has nice gore scenes and remarkable makeup effects.

  10. KafkaesqueKyle's rating of the film From Beyond

  11. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film From Beyond

    La historia va así. Una máquina será capaz de activar la sensibilidad neuronal hasta un nivel desconocido. Esto abrirá puertas a lo sobrehumano. Tres personajes serán engatusados por esta creación que va perturbando sus mentes activando en ellos un lado oscuro e incluso erógeno. Pero también es el hombre que fue atrapado por la máquina, uno que dejó de ser cuerpo para ser monstruo. Esta película era para Cronenberg.

  12. Henry Spencer's rating of the film From Beyond

    Has some neat visual effects, but the monster design and story aren't very compelling.

  13. Gabriele Taddei's rating of the film From Beyond

    how much evil can men be when he is powerful? and how much when he is weak? this perfectly directed low budget movie explain it really well

  14. Ademption's rating of the film From Beyond

    So good that for "Silence of the Lambs," Jonathan Demme plagiarized the scene where a schizophrenic masturbates in an asylum while a female investigator looks on.

  15. Norman1706's rating of the film From Beyond

    If you liked the Fly, you will probably enjoy this one as well. Has some great special effects.

  16. Robert Karol's rating of the film From Beyond

    Great performances by Combs, Crampton & Sorel and inspired production design are let down by a weak script. Still worth checking out at least for the dark sense of humor.

  17. Greg S.'s rating of the film From Beyond

    *Slight spoilers* I'm almost surprised Re Animator has a stronger cult following than this, its not the most intellectual horror film but its still probes at some really interesting ideas mainly the dark side of sexual exhilaration but whats amazing is it does while throwing in giant worms and brain eating. And few horror films turns its 'final' girl into a lunatic so effectively. Must see for horror fans.

  18. Colan Belshaw's rating of the film From Beyond

    I think I'm going to be sick...

  19. nothere's rating of the film From Beyond

    I came for the sleaze and stayed for the brain-through-eyeball sucking. Gordon was aiming for satire and pysch sex politics, he should have aimed lower.

  20. micah van hove's rating of the film From Beyond

    Director's cut is fucking sick

  21. Arcanus's rating of the film From Beyond

    If you are aged between 6 and 10 you MIGHT enjoy this.

  22. PYSZNY's rating of the film From Beyond

    Really kewl visuals, and you gotta admit - seeing brain sucked out through an eye socket was awesome, but extremely cardboard characters (altough Bubba was superb) and poorly executed ending kinda killed that flick imo. 2 stars.

  23. Shelley's rating of the film From Beyond

    not as good as I though it would be but then again, it most likely wasn't made to be very good. nice effects and storyline but not one of my favorites.

  24. acidcow's rating of the film From Beyond

    One of the most kickass horrormovies i have seen in recent years.
