Possible Dir Cut (on DVD?) of From Beyond later this year.

Just noticed this over at Ain't It Cool...

"It seems... That some industrious snooper at MGM was digging through stacks of elements, film elements when they came across a can of little distinction... but inside... oh... the glory that was inside. After checking it out, they called Stuart to come in and screen the footage... turns out this was the lost MPAA enforced missing minutes of depravity from FROM BEYOND! Unseen for 19 years - believed to be lost for all time. Stuart said as he watched these spectacular moments of gore artistry, he smiled one of the biggest smiles of his life.

But - wait - it gets better... As a result, apparently sometime this year we're going to get a restored Director's Cut of H.P. Lovecraft's FROM BEYOND!!!"


Wow! Really hope this comes off.

That would be ace. One of the best Lovecraft adaptations in my opinion, second to re-animator.

Great news if true and MGM do release unrated dvds so good chance of it actually coming out on dvd. From what i remember it was around 20mins that was cut ?? wasnt there some almost hardcore S&M stuff in this missing footage??

It's not great (it bears about this much relation to Lovecraft's original) but it is entertaining... worth the price of admission for Ken Foree alone... and it'd be great to see Mark Shostrom's FX saved from the MPAA bucket after all this time.

Good news

Perversely enough, I've always found Ms. Crampton about as sensual as Edith Bowman and she looks downright silly as an S&M dominatrix.

There is a snippet of Crampton at the beginning of De Palma's 1984 Body Double, which is worth a look. It certainly gave my VCR pause button some action in my teenage years.

If it's half as good as the (referenced) Millennium edition of Re-Animator, woot! That's something to savour indeed!

I'm all excited now!

Ta Chris that article did make for interesting reading.Does anyone know what the contributer of that article meant when he said "I hope at least one of the missing scenes turns up so we can finally see the film as Stuart Gordon intended".I assume he means there is still some infamous scene that still hasn't been found yet? Hmm I'm very curious.
Either way this does sound like it is gonna be a crackin' dvd release and one I'm really looking forward too and I guess I will have to pick up a copy of Body Double as well.
Oh and cheers to Grant666uk for the lovely piccies...silly indeed ha!

I still reckon she looks like a dodgy Dagenham housewife at a swingers party. All you need is Ben Dover to stick his 'head' into the frame.

Have you ever seen a real dominatrix? Look like like, they do not.

Afraid? You will be... you will be...

Look like, they do not. But powers of description, yeees, yeess, to describe I must juxtapose atoms of my clauses.
