Legendary filmmaker Ovidio G. Assonitis, whose Tentacles and Piranha II sought to cash in on the killer fish craze spawned by Jaws, first hit pay dirt in 1974 with Beyond the Door - a gloriously bonkers riff on The Exorcist featuring Emmy Award-winning actress Juliet Mills and distinguished British actor Richard Johnson. Set against the backdrop of San Francisco, Beyond the Door stars Mills as Jessica Barrett, a young mother who starts to develop strange behaviors whilst pregnant with her third child. Before you can say "split pea soup", Jessica is displaying signs of full-blown demonic possession - complete with projectile vomiting and fully-rotating head! Could it be that she's carrying the child of the Antichrist himself? Described as "disgusting", "scary trash" and "maddeningly inappropriate" by film critic Robert Ebert and subject to a lawsuit by Warner Bros. (who claimed copyright infringement against a certain William Friedkin film), the devilish denizens at Arrow Video have summoned up this wickedly entertaining popcorn spiller in a brand new, extras-packed edition fit for Satan himself!

Press Quotes

Beyond the Door is one of the Top Grossing Movies in the country right now. Why? Maybe because at some dumb, fundamental level, it really does live it up to, or down to, its promise. It's all trash, but it's scary trash.

     —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times

Many of the special effect scenes do hold most of what they set out to do...frighten and impact the viewer. Beyond the Door certainly doesn't disappoint with the specialized subject matter.


Arrow has done a nice job bringing both versions of the film to Blu-ray in nice shape and with a release that is stacked with extras old and new. Recommended!

     —DVD Talk

Arrow Video's Limited Edition Blu-ray release of Beyond the Door bests all previous releases of the film, sporting two versions with excellent A/V quality and a multitude of extras. If you're a fan of the film, this is the release to own.

     —The Digital Bits

An unhinged spin on the parental satanic panic of Rosemary's Baby, with iconic elements lifted from The Exorcist. This is another staggeringly packaged release from the folks at Arrow.
