As you may recall, back in April we told you that Shameless Films would be bringing Lucio Fulci's classic The Beyond to Blu-ray with four different versions of the prologue and a handful of new extras!
Well, after some massive delays, the company has announced that the Blu-ray is now officially up for order from their website. And while delays may be somewhat of an annoyance, Shameless has revealed a silver lining: the discovery of the original color camera footage which was scanned in 2K and restored for the first time ever!
New Extras include:
"Emily’s Eyes" – an interview with actress Cinzia Monreale with English subtitles
"Arachnophobia" – an interview with actor 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 Standard Sepia + the Original Colour + the B&W version + the new fourth-way: the Yellow-toned sepia version
Sergio Salvati audio commentary with English subtitles
Catriona McCall and David Warbeck audio commentary
Lucio Fulci banter on set (short)
In The Beyond, "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."
The release is a numbered limited edition of 3,000 units and is street dated for January 13th, 2020.
