From Beyond (director Stuart Gordon in person!)

Every bit as colorful, gruesome and insane as his preceding seminal masterpiece Re-Animator, Stuart Gordon’s From Beyond continues his legendary fascination with H.P. Lovecraft, as well as provide another amazing collaborative canvas for horror film icon Jeffrey Combs to strike with his riveting brand of ultra-impassioned performance. From Beyond tells the gooey tale of a pair of scientists discovering a new gland in the brain — one that happens to yank nightmarish creatures from another reality into our dimension. If that doesn’t already sound like enough fun, Dawn Of The Dead‘s Ken Foree gets thrown into the mix, as does uber-sexy Barbara Crampton (who spends most of her screentime traipsing around in BDSM fetish gear.) Wicked psychedelia, intense latex monster effects and all-out craziness ensues, resulting in one of the Eighties’ greatest lurid horror fantasias. You’d have to be stuck in a hellish alternate reality yourself to miss this rare screening, especially since director Stuart Gordon will be there in person!
Dir. Stuart Gordon, 1986, 35mm, 86 min.
