Trivia

While the movie might have been filmed in Ontario, Canada, the film takes place in Maine. About 3:30 minutes into the film, you can see the the name of the boat, Lover, and its home port, Winterport, ME, painted on the transom. Reinforcing this fact, is Barnard Hughes's Down East accent for his character, boat captain Andy Borchard. See more »

Second of two movie series
25 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

I remember watching the World Beyond enough that just the one viewing in 1978 has remained with me!

The second of two movies featuring the same male lead character. The first was the World of Darkness(1977) (TV). I believe there was an intention to turn it into a regular series, but obviously it never happened.

I still recall Bernard Hughes' excellent performance as a rustic local terrified of the mysterious goings on who leads the Paul Taylor character deeper into the mystery.

If you liked "In Search of..." or 70's horror flicks like The Exorcist or The Amityville Horror you would also likely like these two films as well.
