Well here we go
THE BEYOND has arrived and is shipping NOW!

Shameless proudly presents Lucio Fulci’s THE BEYOND aka ‘L’Aldila’ from a new 2K scan.

We apologies for the massive delay between our announcement earlier this year and the release. This is due to the fact that the original delivery materials were inadequate and we had to wait for a new 2K scan. The silver-lining is that there was the discovery of the original colour camera footage which was scanned in 2K and restored for the first time ever.

Format: numbered, limited edition Blu-ray (3,000 units)

Release date: 13 January but available from us direct NOW

Order direct: http://bit.ly/SHAM224

When jaded New Yorker (Catriona MacColl) inherits a New Orleans hotel, she calls on composed local doctor (David Warbeck) to contain the inexplicable and increasingly gory accidents that are plaguing the building and its grounds. But soon the Gates of Hell themselves open under the hotel, rendering their fight futile as the dead emerge to walk the earth in Fulci’s masterpiece of metaphysical horror The Beyond.

NEW EXTRAS:

• ‘Emily’s Eyes’ – an interview with Cinzia Monreale (with English subtitles).

• ‘Arachnophobia’ – an interview with Michele Mirabella (with English subtitles).

• ‘Murder, They Wrote’ – a unique interview with scriptwriter Giorgio Mariuzzo on working with Lucio Fulci (with English subtitles).

• Prologue four-way comparison showing the original colour, B&W, standard sepia and the new, fourth-way, a version of toning over colour.

ARCHIVE EXTRAS:

• Sergio Salvati (Director of Photography) feature-length audio commentary dissecting the film - with new English subtitles.

• Catriona McCall and David Warbeck a wonderful lively chatty feature-length audio commentary

• Lucio Fulci banter (short conversation on a film set)

SPECIAL BLU-RAY FEATURE:
For the first time ever The Beyond is presented with four different versions of the prologue, seamlessly branched:

(1) The now accepted standard sepia
(2) The original colour camera footage (restored from a new 2K scan)
(3) The B&W version
(4) A new fourth-way: presented as an homage to Maestro Lucio Fulci and DOP Sergio Salvatti. For this new alternative prologue version we have used the restored colour camera footage as a base on which the toning was applied in reference to known considerations from Salvatti. The result is that the reds of the gore are now strikingly visible and all the light sources such as the torches and car headlights are much more luminous.

The Beyond is shipping from our store NOW: http://bit.ly/SHAM224

PS for our next two releases we're cooking up a special edition witches brew but it's no skin off our shins! Any guesses?
