The Beyond - 2/16/13

Every week, the members of the Saturday Night Freak Show (Brent, Tom, Colin & Travis) gather in a subterranean screening room. Each week, a different member of the group chooses a movie to watch, and afterwards we enter the Thunderdome to debate the movie's merit for the entertainment of you, the listener.

On this episode, resident horror buff Colin subjects the group to The Beyond (1981, aka The Seven Doors of Death) from "the Godfather of Italian Gore", Lucio Fulci.  No eyeball is safe as a woman inherits a New Orleans hotel that's been built on one of the Seven Gateways to Hell.  Plus, there's face-eating tarantulas, exploding heads, and a full on surprise zombie apocalypse!   Special guest Sean joins us for a post-film discussion as we talk about Italian horror cinema, and we find out how The Beyond connects to Sam Rami's Spider-Man!
