Caught in the right frame of mind, it offers plenty of groovy sights ... [but] the violent climax is highly problematic.

Like Valley of the Dolls, Beyond is a howler of a movie, with the crucial difference being that Meyer and Ebert intended it that way.

A funky, wonky, and entertaining jolt into the decade that bred free loving, hipster rockers, and hippies...

The very definition of self-conscious camp, certainly not Art but much too intelligent for Trash.

TV Guide
December 17, 2007
An outrageously entertaining cult classic, and probably one of the most bizarre movies ever produced by a major Hollywood studio.

Russ Meyer does mainstream, kind of.

One of the strangest and wildest cult flicks to be ever financed by a major studio (Fox), this sequel has not aged well but it serves as a time capsule to its era.

With his first movie for a major studio, Meyer simply did what he'd been doing for years, only bigger and better.

As his overactive jump cuts prove, Meyer directs films as though he's perpetually on the cusp of a fantastic orgasm.

A psychedelic wow that serves up the free love, plunging necklines, androgynous boys, and lusty lezzies of the era with a narcotized abandon.

It's a B-movie at its best; exploitation with brains.

I can't call it a bad film, since all its eccentricities (including the groovy dialogue) were obviously lovingly placed there.

This trashy, gaudy, sound-stage vulgarity about low life among the high life is as funny as a burning orphanage.
