He used to bring beautiful women here… eat fine meals, drink fine wine, listen to music… but it always ended with screaming.



User Review

My all-time favorite film.

Rating:

**** stars out of ****.

Surpassing even the great "re-animator", "from beyond" is a fantastic
horror
film that boasts a great score, great acting, plot, and
so-on.
Jeffery Combs delivers the good once again, and Ken Foree, one of the most
underrated actors (in my opinion) of all time is great as the tough,
face-stuffing cop as well. And Barbara Crampton's scene is great! (you
know
what I'm talking about)…….Excellent special effects too, loads of
awesome slimy monsters and cool transformation scenes by Mark
Shotorom.
