Critic Reviews for From Beyond

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (4)

  • Faithful to that netherworld of Lovecraft's fiction where otherworldly monsters lurk just under the fabric of our reality.

    September 29, 2007 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • From Beyond doesn't quite measure up [to Re-Animator] -- it's not trashy enough and it doesn't have the insane tunnel vision of the first movie -- but in its own way, this is quite a job.

    January 1, 2000 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The special effects are sensational, creating fascinating grotesqueries and mutilative, fleshly horrors with makeup, prosthetics, and gooey puppeteering.

    September 6, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • The film demands that you be ready to deal with how non-stop gross it is, and will not slow down for you if that proves to be too much.

    August 16, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    July 3, 2018 | Full Review…
  • An upsetting but entertaining trip to the ugly side of science and the existence of incomprehensible dimensions. [Full review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for From Beyond

  • Aug 11, 2013
    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.

    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.

    Definitely one of my personal favourite cult classics. Based on the short story by H.P. Lovecraft, it's a story about Mad Scientist who conjured creatures from outer planar and thus devouring human brains. Stuart Gordon is amazing at directing horror films. The make up and special effect were from beyond it's time. The story was well written, all the itty bitty details were well executed. A good comparison to Hellraiser. The best part in the film is biting the eyeball out of people then suck their brains, classic!

    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.
