Eeff 2013: 'Beyond the Grave' review

  • CineVue
★☆☆☆☆ Regurgitating elements of both the horror and western genres into a hideous example of grindhouse gone wrong, Brazilian director Davi de Oliveira Pinheiro's Beyond the Grave (2010) is an abysmal post-apocalyptic revenge thriller. In a desolate dystopia ravaged by some unspecified disaster, a merciless former-police officer (Rafael Tombini) is searching for a possessed killer. In a world where black magic dictates the tempo of everyday life and zombies roam freely like disoriented pedestrians, this is a road trip through the eerily deserted boondocks of Hell - where deliverance from evil is a wishful delusion.

As he embarks on his 'life or death' mission to find this supernatural serial killer, Tombini runs into violent cowboys, a sword-wielding assassin, two lost teenagers and a former blind colleague now infected and motivated merely by the taste of human flesh. Amalgamating choice cuts from Tarantino's oeuvre, Jodorowsky's El Topo (1970) and even Stephen King's The Stand,

Wide World of Horror: ‘Porto dos Mortos (Beyond the Grave’)

Porto dos Mortos (Beyond The Grave)

Written by Davi de Oliveira Pinheiro

Directed by Davi de Oliveira Pinheiro

Brazil, 2010

There’s a fundamental problem with a film that eschews internal coherency for existential pondering. Such is the state of affairs with Porto dos Mortos, a 2010 Brazilian horror effort. The film starts off yearning to be existentially important and finishes hoping that it has proven that it is an existentially great film. Most cinephiles will tell you that the existentially great films are great not because of their willingness to be existential but because of their willingness to simply be. It’s not a highfalutin concept mind you, it’s the simple matter of a movie being as true to itself as it possibly can be. Yearning to be accepted as existential flies in the face of a film being true to itself. Porto dos Mortos feels and plays as false

Review: Beyond the Grave

Beyond The Grave

Stars: Rafael Tombini, Álvaro Rosa Costa, Ricardo Seffner, Amanda Lerias, Luciana Verch, Leandro Lefa, Tatiana Paganella, Adriano Basegio | Written and Directed by Davi de Oliveira Pinheiro

“In a devastated post-apocalyptic world where the rules of reality are transformed by magic and madness, a vengeful police officer searches for a possessed serial killer in a battle of the not-so-good versus absolute evil”

Films that feature zombies can be quite interesting, they tend to have different styles based on which part of the world they are based in. Beyond the Grave is a zombie film originating in Brazil and directed by Davi de Oliveira Pinheiro and he creates a film where zombies are in ways nothing more than a background menace to the main plot, which itself is more interesting than the average story of the undead.

The main character of the piece is only known as the police officer,

2012 B-movie, Underground and Trash Film Festival: Official Lineup

The theme for this year’s B-Movie, Underground and Trash Film Festival, held in the city of Breda in the Netherlands, is “Apocalypse.” So get ready to watch the world end dozens of different ways on Sept. 5-9 at various venues around the city.

*full disclosure: a screener of this film was provided by director Davi de Oliveira Pinheiro.

Director/writer: Davi de Oliveira Pinheiro.

Cast: Rafael Tombini, Álvaro Rosa Costa and Ricardo Seffner.

Portos dos Mortos or Beyond the Grave is currently making the rounds on the film festival circuits in North America.
