...a disappointing missed opportunity that never becomes the fun, fast-paced horror effort that one might've expected or hoped for.
From Beyond is just as unnerving now as it was in 1986. A boldly ambitious work of cinematic terror.
The tone is so ludicrous and deadpan that it practically invites a late night audience to laugh as well as scream.
I'm not saying it's on the same level as Re-Animator, but From Beyond still ranks pretty damn high on Stuart Gordon's filmography.
Faithful to that netherworld of Lovecraft's fiction where otherworldly monsters lurk just under the fabric of our reality.
Another quirky horror gem from Stuart Gordon
