The Beyond scored a 5 out of 5 hatchets from Horror Author, A.R. Braun. The Following movie review was written by a dark fiction author, A.R. Braun, to be released on the Ritual Blog for Mind on Fire Books.

Fulci’s one of my favorite screenwriter-directors, and while I said last week my new favorite film is Doctor Sleep, my all-time favorite movie is The Beyond.

Liza (Catriona MacColl) has inherited her uncle’s ramshackle hotel in New Orleans. Under the building, a basement? Probably. One of the seven doorways to Hell? Definitely.

The Beyond Movie Review for Mind on Fire Books

This door has opened before, and it will open again. Evil forces grab her dog, leaving her feeling raped and hopeless. One of the most brilliant shots ever has a closing-in reveal of a woman and her seeing-eye dog. This is a portent, for impending gore awaits her when she’s stabbed in the eye.

Review by Horror Writer, A.R. Braun. Check out his review for “Beast.”

Thrilling camera shots abound. Fulci’s soft lighting plops onto the character’s faces. The outdoor shots are grainy and surreal. A terrifying tarantula scene will be burned into your mind. 15 of the Best Quotes from “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury

The Beyond Movie Review by A.R. Braun

Out of the evil door come zombies. Ghosts abound, able to be harmed in the flesh. All right, it’s got its faults, but it’s still a major player from the golden age of horror, this film 1981.

People will tell you The Beyond is a ripoff of Argento’s Suspiria and isn’t as good, but don’t you believe it? Definitely inspired. One thing’s for sure, It’s an eye-popping, creepy-crawling classic. Don’t miss it! It’s only $3.99 to rent in HD—$2.99 in SD—on Prime Video.

Mad Men Mad Men

  • Mad Men is a collection of three disturbing horror shorts from authors living in the Midwest. The themes explored in this collection range from man versus self, man versus man, and man versus creature. [caption id="attachment_4742" align="alignleft" width="188"]Mad Men eBook Mad Men eBook at Mind on Fire Books[/caption] Mad Men begins with Matt’s tale, a thought-provoking thriller that causes the reader to question his reality and what he fears within himself. The second tale explores the grotesque juxtaposed with beautiful nature, where the ending unfolds into a horrific dream, waking in even more terrible pain. The third tale is by seasoned horror writer, A.R. Braun – and his diabolical creatures never disappoint!  A.R. Braun’s goal is to be on the banned book list; we think this tale may just be evil enough to be considered. A must-read before it does get banned! Mainstream Horror Shorts don’t always satisfy us in the way they should. They don’t open conversations about what it is that we fear or why we fear such things, they focus mainly on pop culture and gore. The writers in the Mad Men anthology understand the need for literate horror, opening discussions of man’s psyche. When these writers set out to tell a story, they are less interested in conveying fear and more interested in wonder, the sublime, and the infinite strangeness that drives all men and women. Highly recommended for tweens, teens, and adults. The Mad Men anthology was published by Mind on Fire Books. Written by Willy Martinez, A.R. Braun, and Matt Lavitt.
