Hey there Los Angeles Fright fans! Time for another Friday Night Frights! (like us on Facebook, if you dare!)
After revisiting the splattery funhouse joy that is Stuart Gordon’s Re-Animator the Musical, my cohort Sebastian O’Brien and I wanted to further the Gordon/H.P. Lovecraft good-times. And what better way than by showing Gordon’s second – and even weirder – Lovecraft adaptation, the kinky goo-fest From Beyond. And getting Stuart Gordon to come talk about the film in person! – midnight, Friday June 15 @ The Cinefamily.
Quoth the FNF power blurb:
Every bit as colorful, gruesome and insane as his preceding seminal masterpiece Re-Animator, Stuart Gordon’s From Beyond continues his legendary fascination with H.P. Lovecraft, as well as provide another amazing collaborative canvas for horror film icon Jeffrey Combs to strike with his riveting brand of ultra-impassioned performance. From Beyond tells the gooey tale of a pair of scientists discovering a new gland in the brain — one that happens to yank nightmarish creatures from another reality into our dimension. If that doesn’t already sound like enough fun, Dawn Of The Dead‘s Ken Foree gets thrown into the mix, as does uber-sexy Barbara Crampton (who spends most of her screentime traipsing around in BDSM fetish gear.) Wicked psychedelia, intense latex monster effects and all-out craziness ensues, resulting in one of the Eighties’ greatest lurid horror fantasias. You’d have to be stuck in a hellish alternate reality yourself to miss this rare screening, especially since director Stuart Gordon will be there in person!
