Stuart Gordon United States, 1986

Bob's rating of the film From Beyond

A story loosely based on H.P. Lovecraft's work is exploited as a standard gore-fest. Special effects are mostly exceptional on a level of "The Thing" or "The Fly" but it comes more like a spiritual sibling to then upcoming "Society". It's handled in a such trashy way, that coherent plot doesn't do any favor. It would be a lot easier to sit through without classical story structure. Otherwise, worth checking out.
