BEYOND THE DARKNESS REVIEWED
“Beyond the Darkness” is a Joe D’Amato movie that straddles the lines of good taste. Yeah, I know…another one. This is a film about a taxidermist turning his dead wife into a doll. He still kinda wants to have sex with it, but he wants the body to hold. Then, he replaces her eyeballs with pieces of glass. All the while, Goblin music blares as you wait for the horror to start.
Joe D’Amato is great about getting you into the creepy, but he just abandons you there. For a film that had such a distinct look, nothing really builds out of the horror. I know some people are fans of this, but I can’t get totally onboard. That being said, I’d recommend it for the oddity factor.
