THE BEYOND (seven doors of death; e tu vivrai nel terrore! l`aldila; l`aldila) (1981 ITALY) D: "LOUIS FULLER" (LUCIO FULCI) W: GIORGIO MARIUZZI/DARDANO SACCHETTI P: FABRIZIO DE ANGELIS
Catriona MaColl renovates a run-down hotel in New Orleans that turns out to be one of the seven gateways to hell in this favourite among Fulci fans. David Warbeck co-stars as the hero and there`s plenty of zombies and gore. A little blind girl`s throat is ripped out by her guide dog, tarantulas attack, there`s a nasty chain-whipping flashback and the ending is nicely ambiguous (unlike CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD for example). Very atmospheric and a good horror movie, but not one of Fulci`s masterpieces. With Al Cliver, Fulci and Sacchetti. May be based on the writings of Clark Ashton Smith (and by association, H.P. Lovecraft)
