Super rare screening of a beautiful 16mm print of the ultimate “Italian Exorcist” – BEYOND THE DOOR – pulled from the ghoulish archives of Chris Alexander (Editor-in-Chief Delirium Magazine, ex-Editor-in-Chief FANGORIA, Co-Founder of Horror-Rama)!

Celluloid fans – this is the 97min, original US version, with all the violence/horror/gore intact!

Legendary filmmaker Ovidio G. Assonitis, whose TENTACLES and PIRANHA II sought to cash in on the killer fish craze spawned by JAWS, first hit pay dirt in 1974 with Beyond the Door (aka “Chi Sei?”) − a gloriously bonkers riff on THE EXORCIST featuring Emmy Award-winning actress Juliet Mills and distinguished British actor Richard Johnson and a killer score by composer Franco Micalizzi (THE TOUGH ONES, VIOLENT NAPLES), including funky jammer “Bargain With the Devil”.

Set against the backdrop of San Francisco, BEYOND THE DOOR stars Mills as Jessica Barrett, a young mother who starts to develop strange behaviours whilst pregnant with her third child. Before you can say “split pea soup,” Jessica is displaying signs of full-blown demonic possession − complete with projectile vomiting and fully-rotating head! Could it be that she’s carrying the child of the Antichrist himself?

Described as “disgusting,” “scary trash” and “maddeningly inappropriate” by film critic Roger Ebert and subject to a lawsuit by Warner Bros. (who claimed copyright infringement against a certain William Friedkin film), BEYOND THE DOOR is one of the all-time greats of 1970s Italian horror! – DAVID BERTRAND
