In the scene were Laura Gittleson - the real estate agent is killed by Dr Freudstein, we see her body lying on the floor with her eyes closed and her mouth open. A few moments later we see Freudstein drag her into the basement and her eyes are now open, but her mouth is closed. Then later, when we see her hanging in the basement near the end of the film, her eyes and mouth are both open. See more »
Mae, time to go home and remember your manners. Now that Bob is staying with us, be sure to treat him like a Freudstein. For other guests are surely destined to drop in.

While most people think The Beyond is Fulci's best, i personally think this is his best film. The FX effects are alot better and realistic looking then his previous movies and the villain in the film Dr. Freudstein is among the ranks of Freddy, Jason, The Shape, Pinhead, Leatherface and others as a truely scary and nasty monster. Like all Fulci's films there are some problems including some bad acting, annoying dubbed voices, multiple plot holes and things that come up but are never hinted at or talked about again but overall the film conveys a frightening atmosphere (which Fulci is great at), excellent FX and gore effects (with one possible exception, lets just say it involves a bat), a great musical score and one of my favorite and most horrific villains ever put on screen. Fulci also ends it in a very dark and ambiguous manner. Vote: 9 out of 10
