Finding love was so simple back then. A strange man arrives with no backstory, your children are weirded out but whatever, he says a 10 second sales pitch sermon, and then you get a partner for life the next day. Granted, the marriage sort of blows but it was undeniably easier.
The Beyond is the best synthesis of Italian Horror. Does it make sense? Nope, but it doesn’t need to. Like any good Italian Horror, The atmosphere and action make up for the lack of a cohesive plot. Why spend all this time explaining why weird shit is happening in this mansion when you could have a long scene where tarantulas crawl in a guy’s eye? That’s why I love Italian Horror and The Beyond. Skip the boring backstory and show me some creepy and gross stuff.
