The Beyond: The Composer’s Cut brings a new version of Lucio Fulci classic to theatres

Forty-one years after director Lucio Fulci‘s film The Beyond (watch it HERE) was released and embraced as a classic by many horror fans, a new version of the movie is now about to make its way out to theatres across the United States. This new version of The Beyond is called The Composer’s Cut because it features a brand new score composed by Fabio Frizzi – who also composed the movie’s original score.

Starring Catriona MacColl, David Warbeck, Sarah Keller, Antoine Saint-John, and Veronica Lazar, The Beyond shows what happens when a young woman inherits an old hotel only to find it sits atop a gateway to Hell and all manner of creatures lurk in the darkness.

The film is the second entry in Fulci’s “Gates of Hell” trilogy, which began with City of the Living Dead and ended with The House by the Cemetery.

The Beyond: The Composer’s Cut pairs the new score with a 4K presentation of The Beyond, newly scanned from the original camera negatives. Grindhouse Releasing is taking the film on tour throughout the rest of the year, and our friends at Bloody Disgusting got a list of the theatres that will be showing it:

Grindhouse Releasing co-founder Bob Murawski provided the following statement: “Fulci fans will definitely want to see this on the big screen for the maximum impact. It’s the best the movie has ever looked and a whole new experience in terror with Fabio’s brilliant new score!

Music Box described what Frizzi has done with The Beyond: The Composer’s Cut: “We are used to having theatrical cuts and director’s cuts, but nobody ever dared to conceive and perform a movie version following the musician’s point of view. A new score for a cult classic, realized in a more modern way, almost in the Hollywood style, with very few moments of silence but with great respect for its original identity. A true expanded version of itself, realized through renewed skill and mastery with the important ally of 35 years of added proficiency.
