Trick or Treat II: ‘From Beyond’

October 31st, 2007 by Jeff Simmermon

Here’s a real gem: an excerpt of From Beyond, a film I’ll be moving to the top of the Netflix queue immediately.

Tip of the hat to AMC’s SciFi Scanner for the clip and the copy below:

Lightly pulsating beneath the skin of your forehead, Descartes’ third eye, the pineal gland. Properly titillated by sonic vibrations from a machine built by a mad scientist, this seemingly superfluous organ can awaken, offering a glimpse of the ectoplasmic horrors of the world beyond our five senses. Needless to say, once your third eye opens? You start eating brains. And they can make you very sick.

From Beyond is another incredibly gory Stuart Gordon H.P. Lovecraft adaptation that came out in the early 80′s, shortly after the release of Re-Animator. It’s never quite gotten the same love, but it shares many of the timeless qualities of that horror sci-fi classic: Lovecraftian monsters, lots of gore, Jeffery Combs and Barbara Crampton’s exposed breasts.

I hate to be the one to point this out here, but if someone’s eating brains out of the trash can, they’re probably already very, very sick.
