Description: A young rich orphan loses his fiancée to voodoo doll mischief on the part of his housekeeper who is jealous of his attentions. He digs his girlfriend up, cleans her out, stuffs her, and puts her in bed at the mansion. Following this, he tries out and disposes of a series of young maidens, trying to find the right replacement for her, and the disapproving housekeeper helps him with the disposals.
The film “Beyond the Darkness” by the famous director Joe D’Amato (the famous director of Exotic Malice) is clearly one of the most successful horror in his work, and in the Italian cinema of those years as a whole. Picture can truly be put on a par with the masterpieces of Fulci and Bava, as it contains all the things that must contain a real horror movie.
Despite the seemingly mysterious title of the film – “Beyond the Darkness”, he dispensed with the presence in the plot all kinds of supernatural forces, but this made it more vital. The film revolves around a character who has lost his bride. But in the end this rather banal drama gives rise to a whole series of violent events.
First of all, the picture will please the audience, eager for any kind of “meat” on the details screen. Here and show detailed dissection of the corpse, and pulling out fingernails with pliers in one of the victims, and cutted throat, as well as much more. All this means that the atmosphere in the film was a very hard and strong.
