WITH ALL-NEW SPECIAL FEATURES AND SOUNDTRACK CD Shortly after completing TROLL 2, writer/director Claudio Fragasso and co-writer Rossella Drudi (SHOCKING DARK) returned to America to combine elements of THE EXORCIST, POLTERGEIST, THE BEYOND and their own insane aesthetic for what critics - and Fragasso/Drudi themselves - consider to be their horror masterpiece: When a Satanic child killer is executed, she transforms the new home of a young reverend and his family into a portal to Hell. Gene LeBrock (METAMORPHOSIS), David Brandon (CALIGULA 2) and Michael Paul Stephenson (child star of TROLL 2 and director of BEST WORST MOVIE) star in this "batsh*t crazy good time" (EuroCult AV) shot by Joe D'Amato with costumes by Laura Gemser, an epic score by Carlo Maria Cordio (NIGHT KILLER) and released in Italy as EVIL DEAD 5, now featuring new interviews produced exclusively for this edition.

Press Quotes

Horror genius... Superior on every level. A so-great-it's-awesome film that really shows off Fragasso's talent and understanding of the genre.

     —Scared Stiff

Claudio Fragasso's most entertaining masterwork... Fun, fast-paced supernatural horror. Fragasso reveals himself as a popular visionary.

     —Senseless Cinema

Yes, it goes nuts... An eclectic dish featuring the occasional feverish burst of madness. It arrives out of a tradition that completely warped normal standards.

     —Oh, The Horror!

Beyond Darkness has some interesting elements, and one of those is the rather disturbing performance by Mary Coulson. As usual with Severin releases, the on disc supplements are very enjoyable, and score fans will most likely appreciate the included soundtrack CD.

     —Blu-ray.com

Colors look very good, the image generally looks crisp (Beyond Darkness often employs soft focus cinematography) and black levels fare well? Beyond Darkness gets a strong release from Severin Films that comes with a trio of informative extras and a CD that contains the score.

     —10K Bullets

Carlo M. Cordio’s eclectic synthesizer riff and haunting keynotes score is on another level akin to a composition pulled right out of a survival horror video game, and Larry J. Fraser, another one of Joe D’Amato’s pseudonyms, has an honesty about his scenes unlike we’ve ever seen before in a D’Amato production as the cinematographer captures the fog luminously and effervescently surrounding and chasing the family from out to in.

     —It's Bloggin Evil

The interviews are pretty great, with Brandon recalling filming in New Orleans, which he says is one of his favorite cities in all the world. Also getting into his experiences making the film, sitting in the electric chair, his relationship with the the kids in the film, the strange vibes of the house, and they heavy use of smoke machines, and his preference for vomiting blood and not foam.

     —MC Bastard's Mausoleum

Carlo Maria Cordio's score is Beyond Darkness’ greatest asset, as it does a good job setting the mood. Also, David Brandon (StageFright) is very good in the role of an alcoholic priest whose faith has been tested by a demonic entity.

     —10K Bullets

Beyond Darkness is a batshit insane hodge-podge of elements from other films Frankensteined together with wild abandon. Don’t miss this one cats n’ creeps!

     —DanXIII, Horror Fuel

The presentation of the film in high definition is about on par with Scream Factory’s release, but the real reason to get this one is to add the soundtrack by Carlo Maria Cordio to your collection.

     —Zombies Don't Run

 If you’re a fan pick this one up.
