The Beyond

...E tu Vivrai nel Terrore! L'AldilĂ 
1981 / 87m - Italy

Turned out I'd seen this one before, but it took me about 50 minutes to figure that out. It all came back to me when I reached the scene with the spiders. Sadly it's also the only memorable scene from the movie. Quite a pity that it isn't even all that great.

The film lacks atmosphere. It does have a lot of potential, but really lousy dubs, terrible acting and cheesy sound effects take away a lot of the atmosphere. It's really beyond me why someone thought it would be a good idea to rustle a newspaper whenever spiders were on screen, for example.

The gore is also really lacking. And there's lots of useless plot points that slow down the movie. Once in a while it was fascinating, like the pleasant beginning of the film, but often it simply was too tedious and boring.
