The Beyond (1981) | Lucio Fulci | Italy
This film was never seen in America in its uncut form until 1998, when Grindhouse Releasing tracked down the original master and restored the film, playing it at midnight shows at selected cities. Quentin Tarantino’s Rolling Thunder Pictures released the restored DVD.
Speaking of Struzan, he painted one of my absolute favorite horror posters. I first saw this on a VHS for The Thing and it really encapsulates the creepiness and mystery of the story. The silhouette is one of the characters of the film, but the light emanating from “his” head not only tells us that it could be anyone, but also that whatever it is, it’s not from this world. So simple, yet so effective.
Hey guys! I’m taking part in “Strange Paradise”, an Asian horror art zine run by Jenny Zych and Anna Rose! I’m very excited to take part. I submitted my House design from a little while back, as it’s never been printed. Check out the tumblr, it’s filled with great art!
