The Beyond (1981) | Lucio Fulci | Italy | Video Nasty 5 of 72
The Beyond (L’aldilà, also released as Seven Doors of Death) is a 1981 Italian horror film. The second film in Fulci’s unofficial Gates of Hell trilogy (along with City of the Living Dead and The House by the Cemetery), The Beyond has gained a cult following over the decades, in part because of the film’s gore-filled murder sequences.
The film was originally released theatrically in the UK in 1981 and received extensive BBFC cuts to scenes of violence. It later spent some time on the video nasty list before being removed without prosecution, and all VHS releases featured the same cut cinema print. It was finally passed fully uncut in 2001 and released on DVD on the Vipco label.(x)
