Movie Info

Italian horror legend Lucio Fulci directed this strange little mystery about a woman (Karina Huff) whose millionaire father (Duilio del Prete) is murdered by having ground glass frozen into the ice cubes used in his drink. Del Prete's spirit then causes Huff to search for his killer, but as his body rots, his reach into the world of the living grows progressively less effective. The bulk of the story analyzes the motivations of the usual assortment of greedy relatives, and -- to please fans -- Fulci throws in one of his obligatory zombie attacks in an unrelated nightmare sequence. Pascal Persiano and Damiano Azzos co-star. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Voices From Beyond (Voci dal profondo)

I like Fulci films of the 70's and early 80's (basically through Manhattan Baby) but for some reason from his dismal fantasy epic Conquest in 1985 on his films are, for the most part, bad. Voices From Beyond isn't necessarily bad but it is very passable. This film, much like Fulci's TV Movie House of Clocks, really acts like an Italian Twilight Zone episode stretched out to feature length done Fulci style. Here we get a very rich family whose father dies a mysterious death. The father talks to himself (even though he's dead) throughout most of the film trying to figure out his murderer. His favorite daughter (who's the same actress from the film House of Clocks...and a fine looker I might add) visits for the funeral and her dead father communicates to her that he's been murdered and wants her to find the killer. The story (written by Fulci) is a tired weak formula and overall this really feels like a TV made film. It wasn't made for TV but it does have the same feel as House of Clocks. Also like many of Fulci's later works this movie was filmed with soft lenses giving the film a white hue, or a hazy look. I often hate this soft lens look that dominated Italian cinema in the late 80's and early 90's. Sometimes it just cheapens the look of a film for me. Fulci no doubt was trying to give his films "dreamy" or "surreal" look but it just gets old. Unless you are a die-hard Fulci fanatic, I would think twice about paying the high price for this on DVD (especially since now it is out-of-print). Though Image Entertainment does a good job at mastering this little seen film they failed to deliver any special features what-so-ever. I personally just found the film to be kind of blah and it lacks the grander look and appeal of his early films that even the weaker Manhattan Baby contained. On a side note, horror fans might find it of interest that Fulci thanks Clive Barker in the end credits.
