Typically ridiculous zombie movie from Lucio Fulci that is also the second part of his unofficial “Gates of Hell” trilogy. There isn’t much in the way of a plot – a young woman inherits a hotel in Louisiana, where a suspected warlock was murdered many decades before. His death opened a portal to Hell in the basement, which is then reopened by her renovation work. After that she teams up with a local doctor and together they must battle zombies, blind women and flesh eating plastic spiders. There’s plenty of gruey over the top killing, but the lack of plot and generally nonsensical behaviour can become taxing if you’re not prepared for this kind of film. As a fan of nihilistic endings, however, The Beyond has to rank right up near the top.
