A melange of Lovecraftian influences [that] stands side-by-side with Re-Animator as one of the best films of Band's Empire International years.
An upsetting but entertaining trip to the ugly side of science and the existence of incomprehensible dimensions. [Full review in Spanish]
...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.
Has little to offer other than laughs at its campiness, and a reminder of how low budget filmmaking by those with higher aspirations looked, back in the day.
Another quirky horror gem from Stuart Gordon
Works on nearly every level and qualifies as one of the classics of modern horror.
It grows tense and mysterious with excellent special effects and make-up while always holding our interest, but in the last half-hour it goes completely astray and over the top, losing its direction and becoming a hilarious mess with an insane climax.
A pair of mad scientists develop a device that activates the pineal gland, allowing them access to the "beyond." This is an obvious attempt by director Stuart Gordon to repeat the formula that worked so well in his debut, RE-ANIMATOR---R-rated update of an H.P. Lovecraft idea starring Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton---but it lacks the black comedy, outrageousness and originality that made the early film a hit.
Stuart Gordon has made a terrific film with Re-Animator continues that streak with From Beyond, another film based on the works of H.P Lovecraft. The result is a highly entertaining film that delivers a unique viewing experience. Brilliantly acted by a cast comprising of some of the most memorable names in horror, this film definitely is a thrill from start to finish. This is a shocking, horrifying film with great gore effects that is sure to please the most die-hard gore hound. Stuart Gordon has always been a top-notch director in the genre and with From Beyond, he solidifies his reputation as one of the best directors in the genre. This is a well crafted Sci Fi horror film that has hints of the body horror genre. Stuart Gordon's understanding of the horror medium. The plot is terrific and there are some great performances by Ken Foree and Jeffrey Combs who make the film worth seeing. Stuart Gordon keeps the ball rolling with memorable gore effects that really stand out. This is a sick film that relies on gore and surrealism elements that add to the film's story. This is among the best of 80's horror. The film is also one of best films by Stuart Gordon who helmed Re-Animator and that's saying something. This is a riveting picture that is a bloody good time from start to finish. If you love Gordon's work on Re-Animator, then this film is for you. Brilliantly constructed, directed and acted, this is horror at its finest, and a film that shouldn't be passed up.
All you need to know is Jeffrey Combs sucks a woman's brains out...
through her ocular socket.
