It’s Halloween Eve. Time for some Lucio Fulci. Although, this ain’t just any old Fulci. This is Fulci at his absolute finest. The Beyond is a creepy masterpiece. If you care about horror in the least and haven’t seen this film, make it your next viewing. It’s such a trippy, brain-explosion of a movie.
