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:

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.


• ‘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.


• 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)

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:

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?

Not enough to tempt me, I’ll stick with the Grindhouse Releasing version, chances are there’ll be something wrong with it anyway :nod:

Yep, Arrow version good enough for me.

Anyone able to make a stab at what the clues to the next releases are?

I love the beyond, it's Fulci's masterpiece, but every shameless "limited" release has eventually turned up cheap somewhere after i've bought it. 4 versions of the opening, why it's like getting those missing boat frames from ZFE back! Looooollll!!!!:lol:

A pretty positive review over at Mondo Digital 👍

The Beyond

Whilst Mondo makes no mention of it, I've read a few people saying that the Shameless The Beyond has echo-ey audio. That scares me off from an immediate purchase.

Yeah, they always seem to **** something up, on all their releases.
Even though the transfer seems to be good, I'll rather wait for a future 4K transfer.

Justin101 14th January 2020 03:21 PM

By the sounds of it, the mono audio has been multiplexed to 4 channels and they are slightly out of phase with each other which is causing the echo. Some have said to downmix to 2 channels if you can and others still are saying that it'll still be out of phase (echoey) but just coming out of 2 speakers instead of 4...

The video looks good, but very similar to the Grindhouse one.

There is apparently another company working on a release in the US so it might be worth waiting.

Knew it wasn’t worth a punt. Speaking of Shameless **** ups, I noticed that Dellamorte Dellamore is on Amazon Prime Video, so I thought I’d give it a watch seeing as their dvd is a stuttering mess (as is the blu ray apparently), watched a few minutes and it’s the same shitty transfer, so that got switched off!
