From the team that brought you the gloriously perverse Re-Animator comes the equally surreal 1986 cult horror favourite From Beyond, which makes its long-awaited debut on Blu-ray thanks to Second Sight Films.Based on another H.P. Lovecraft adaptation this deranged gorefest is directed by Stuart Gordon (Stuck) and produced by horror supremo Brian Yuzna (Society).
An obsessive scientist Dr. Pretorius (Ted Sorel) and his assistant (the great Jeffrey Combs) have invented 'The Resonator', a device designed to stimulate the brain's pineal gland and expand the powers of the mind. The machine gives them more than they bargained for however when a parallel universe inhabited by slimy creatures ready to prey on humans reveals itself. Pretorious meets a sticky end, returns as a grotesque, deformed being and all manner of depravity ensues.
From Beyond comes to Blu-ray in stunning limited edition packaging, along with a DVD release on 25th February 2013 from Second Sight Films at the RRP of £19.99 for the Blu-ray and £15.99 for the DVD.
Bonus features will include:
