On the headless heels of the brain-splattering fright landmark Re-Animator (1985), writer-director Stuart Gordon turns again to the way-out works of author H.P. Lovecraft to deliver another screaming gross-out classic. Also returning are stars Jeffrey Combs, as our scientist hero, and Barbara Crampton, as a naked vision of pure bliss, this time in the guise of a psychiatrist. Mucking things up quite literally is Dr. Pretorius (Ted Sorel), whose theories regarding the human brain's pineal gland as a gateway to invisible dimensions that constantly surround us prove all too fluidly, grotesquely true. From Beyond (1986) is one of the best, ballsiest, and most maniacal blasts to come rip-roaring out of horror's fertile mid-1980s renaissance. Long may it ooze.
