Fans of Lucio Fulci‘s The Beyond are in for a treat today! You guys have to check out this figure for Sarah Keller’s Emily and her guide dog Dickey.
In the film, “The cellar of an old hotel is built on top of the door to the beyond. Bloody zombies roam there. A young woman who is heir of the hotel wants to restaurate it. She is confronted with strange events. A painter has a lethal fall, the plumber vanishes and her friend breaks his neck. When she escapes to the hospital of a friendly doctor she doesn’t know what a nightmare is waiting there…”
I can’t necessarily make out the particulars because they’re in Japanese, but this one retails for around $161.50 and you might want to pre-order it before it becomes available in September. You can check out the page here!

Considered by many to be one of Lucio Fulci’s greatest films, The Beyond is a classic Italian horror film that has built a strong cult following since it’s release in 1981. Not only recognized for fantastic visuals and gore-filled murder scenes, the film also boasts the music of frequent Fulci collaborator Fabio Frizzi. Unfortunately, there has never been a proper soundtrack release, one that brings the beauty and complexity of the score to life. Until now.
Mondo has announced that tomorrow they will be selling a limited edition vinyl pressing of Frizzi’s classic score. There will only be 1500 copies (1000 on black vinyl, 500 on randomly-inserted blue vinyl). The score was remastered by James Plotkin and the design done by Rob Jones who won a Grammy for his packaging design on The White Stripes‘ “Under Great White Northern Lights” box set. The exact time that these LPs will go on sale is unknown, so it’s best to follow @MondoNews for the precise time of sale.
Mitch Putnam, art director of Mondo, states, “We’ve long been fans of Italian horror soundtracks, and The Beyond is one of the first I can remember latching onto. Frizzi’s work is the perfect backdrop to faces being melted by acid. We tried to treat the pressing with the utmost respect, we hope you enjoy it.”

just in case.
If I had a record player, I would be compulsively clicking the ‘refresh’ button. What a fantastic score!
