Shameless Films Releasing Lucio Fulci's 'The Beyond' on Special Edition Blu-Ray With New 2K Scan

Shameless Films just announced a special edition release of Lucio Fulci‘s 80s horror classic The Beyond on Blu-Ray in the UK, featuring a new 2K scan. The film will be available through the company’s website on January 13th, 2020. Cover artwork and bonus features are listed below, including a pre-order link RIGHT HERE!

Synopsis: “When jaded New Yorker (Catriona MacColl) inherits a New Orleans hotel, she calls on composed local doctor (David Warbeck) to contain the inexplicable and increasingly gory accidents that are plaguing the building and its grounds. But soon the Gates of Hell themselves open under the hotel, rendering their fight futile as the dead emerge to walk the earth in Fulci’s masterpiece of metaphysical horror: The Beyond.

For the first time ever The Beyond is presented with four different versions of the prologue, seamlessly branched, allowing fans of Fulci’s masterpiece to see the original colour footage which the film was actually shot on, as never seen before and show the various stages of the post-production process of this landmark film.

SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS:

  • The now accepted standard sepia
  • The original colour camera footage
  • The B&W version
  • A new fourth-way: presented as an homage to director Lucio Fulci and DOP Sergio Salvatti for the first time ever. For this new alternative prologue version Shameless have used the restored colour camera footage as a base on which a new golden toning was applied in reference to known considerations from Salvatti. The result is that the reds of the gore are now strikingly visible and all the light sources such as the torches and car headlights are much more luminous

NEW EXTRAS:

  • ‘Emily’s Eyes’ – an interview with Cinzia Monreale (with English subtitles)
  • ‘Arachnophobia’ – an interview with Michele Mirabella (with English subtitles)
  • ‘Murder, They Wrote’ – a unique interview with scriptwriter Giorgio Mariuzzo on working with Lucio Fulci (with English subtitles)
  • THE BEYOND ‘prologue four-way comparison’ showing: the Original Colour + the B&W version + the Standard Sepia + the new, fourth-way: a version of toning over colour.

ARCHIVE EXTRAS:

  • Sergio Salvati (Director of Photography) feature-length audio commentary dissecting the film – with new English subtitles
  • Catriona McCall and David Warbeck a wonderful lively chatty feature-length audio commentary
  • Lucio Fulci banter (short conversation on a film set)

You can pre-order The Beyond on Blu-Ray from the Amazon.co.uk.
