  • SPECIAL BLURAY FEATURE: for the first time ever THE BEYOND is presented with four different versions of the Prologue, seamlessly branched, enabling the complete and uninterrupted viewing of the film, starting with: (1) The now accepted standard sepia (2) The original colour camera footage (restored from a new 2k scan) (3) The B&W version (also as reference to an ‘infamous' mistake! ) (4) A new 4th-way: presented as an homage to this cult-classic from Maestros Lucio Fulci and DOP Sergio Salvati, a new alternative version is proposed using for the 1st time the colour camera footage as the base on which toning is applied - with reference to Salvati’s known thinking. It results in more vivid visuals where the reds of the gore are strikingly visible and the light of torches & car headlights are much more luminous. In a way, these four versions of the prologue show the various stages of the postproduction and grading processes: starting with the original colour camera footage we then see the prologue in B&W and finally in the standard sepia version made by the means of the time.
  • NEW EXTRAS: ‘Emily’s Eyes’ – an interview with Cinzia Monreale (with English subtitles); ‘Arachnophobia’ – an interview with Michele Mirabella (with English subtitles); ‘Murder, They Wrote’ – a unique interview with scriptwriter Giorgio Mariuzzo on working with Lucio Fulci (with English subtitles); THE BEYOND ‘prologue four-way comparison’ showing: the Original Colour + the B&W version + the Standard Sepia + the new, fourth-way: a version of toning over colour.
