Weird Wednesday | From Beyond - Alamo Drafthouse Raleigh - Raleigh

Weird Wednesday is a weekly celebration of genre movies that are too outrageous for prime time. This is a one-way ticket to the fringes of the unknown, where imagination and ambition dance on the graves of logic and reality. From outlaw exploitation classics to inexplicable Hollywood excess, Weird Wednesday showcases mind-blowing genre discoveries that are unlike anything else you’ve ever seen. Some daring. Some controversial. All weird.ABOUTH.P. Lovecraft and Lucio Fulci did not team up to make the most incredible sex-horror grotesquerie of 1986. But thanks to FROM BEYOND, they didn't have to. Filmed directly after RE-ANIMATOR, this movie reunites director Stuart Gordon with actors Barbara Crampton and Jeffrey Combs for an overdose of hallucinogenic insanity. But this isn't RE-ANIMATOR PART 2. It's grimmer. It's more hateful. And it's even more hyperactive than its berserker predecessor. FROM BEYOND feels like a 1950s mad scientist movie that was magically transposed to the neon-soaked, S&M-tinged 1980s. As good as that sounds, it gets even better. Because in addition to the jaw-dropping special effects and relentless body-carnage, FROM BEYOND gives us the most powerfully unhinged performance since FOREVER with Barbara Crampton as the mysterious Dr. McMichaels. You will also see Ken Foree from DAWN OF THE DEAD wearing nothing but underpants while battling a subhumanoid monster.
