Good stuff. really looking forward to Beyond the Gates!
Really good discussion. I'm Patrick from the past. Watching Italian horror, waiting for it to fully win me over. I won't stop!!
I think once you stop trying to understand the why then you start to love it for its strangeness, its score and its vivid colours, its like Xtro, you just gotta go with it for it to work, I hope it breaks you down to your heart, it wasent something I always loved neither
Great episode. My favorite Fulci film. Just a heads up though, this film was made in English, all of the leads speak English, it was the intended language. Check out the Projection Booth's discussion on The Beyond, it's excellent as well.
We can only dream about Beyond the Beyond
Thank you for this podcast! It has really helped articulate my feelings about The Beyond, which I watched for the first time only a few days ago and still processing. I agree with Dennis I did really respond to the strangeness and the score and the willingness to just go for the brutality (just like Xtro). At the moment it is a movie I admire than out right love. Though, I do want to watch again and more Fulci.Again also thank you for the Carpenter/Craven - Argento/Fulci comparison (again for articulating something). Even though they are very different film makers, I have been just happy to wallow in with Argento while The Beyond was a shock to the system, Much like Carpenter and Craven. Because Carpenter and Argento are so much more technical I feel a little safer with them maybe. Again I am rambling. I have just discovered something new and I am excited.
That was super fun, any chance of a solo/group commentary on The Beyond or another Italian horror/Hallo flick?
I meant Giallo, not Hallo. Spellcheck really chaps my Eskimo.
