The banned german theatical version is the only version that has a coloured Precredit sequence. The same version was released on video by Video Medien Pool (VMP) in 1982. Unfortunately it was banned on February, 27th, 1986. So officially it's not longer availible exept for a cut version named "Über dem Jenseits" (approx. 65 Min.!). See more »
When the Gates of Hell Are Open, Deads Walk on Earth
The New Yorker Liza Merril (Katherine MacColl) inherits an old hotel in Louisiana, and invests her savings to reopen the place. While repairing the building, many people dies, and local Dr. John McCabe (David Warbeck) feels close to Liza and tries to help her to solve the mystery of the hotel. Meanwhile, Emily (Sarah Keller), a blind woman, advises Liza to leave the place as soon as possible.
"Seven Doors of Death" is a frightening horror movie from the master of the genre Lucio Fulci. The special effects and makeup used for the horrible deaths are amazing, as well as the movements of the camera. The scary story has an unexpected surprising twist in the very end and certainly this movie may be considered one of the best movies of horror ever. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "A Casa do Além (VHS)" ("The House from Beyond")
Note: On 05 August 2014, I saw this movie again on DVD.
On 09 June 2015, I saw this movie again on DVD ( "Terror nas Trevas").
