    Great, great film - hopefully Elite, Anchor Bay, or Blue Underground can get this title going. I'm there!

    Cheers,

    It's out in Hong Kong. Full-frame with non-removable Chinese subs. It's legit but I'd rather wait for a better release.

    It's an MGM title in the US, and word has it that they are working on it for DVD release. I believe Stuart Gordon has mentioned working on the disc recently.

    In these dire times, when good horror films are few and far between, I can't wait for a class act like From Beyond to hit DVD...Just in time for my Halloween festival (hopefully.)

    I would expect From Beyond to be part of the next wave of Midnite Movie discs. At the earliest, we'll see it in April, but more likely, it will be out next August. I can wait.

    Jeffrey Combs, Barbara Crampton & Ken Foree.

    Ooh, if only they could find the unrated footage of Barbara Crampton's bondage sequence...

    "From Beyond" is a horror movie based on an H.P. Lovecraft story starring the three actors that Mark listed above. I have it on VHS and like the movie. The nudity in the film is a bit extreme although not objectionable IMHO. I also liked it because of the performance by Ken Foree, one of my favorite actors of "Dawn of the Dead" fame. I have never run across this in DVD form and would definately pick up a copy if presented in widescreen DTS or DD 5.1 format.

    Apparently, this version looks pretty damn good from what I've read, but it's full frame.

    I'd definitely get this if it were released. Is there an unrated cut and if so what are the chances we'll get it?
    As he did in Dawn, Ken Foree kicks ass in From Beyond as Bubba.

    Anyone know or hear if the H.P. Lovecraft movie "From Beyond" is in the works for DVD for Region 1? I have seen it for sale on ebay but they are "all region" DVDs. This is a movie I'd love to own on DVD. I have the VHS version but DVD would be much better. In my opinion, all H.P. Lovecraft's movies should be on DVD. Love the Barbara Crampton!

    I'd love to see this on DVD, I'm surprised no one has released it. I have no idea who owns it, I don't think it even came out on Laser.

    The original poster is wise to this, but if you're "pinealing" away for a fix, there is an English-language/Chinese subs version available from a Hong Kong source, all-region (NTSC) and LTXed but not enhanced. It's as bare-bones as can be but I've had it for four years now. Ocean Shores (www.ocean-shores.com)put it out and maybe you can bypass ebay that way. It's not much of a disc but it'll have to do until an alternative shows up.
