Stuart Gordon's FROM BEYOND

It's never been on DVD, and even the theatrical version had to be trimmed to satisfy the moral guardians at the MPAA, but at long last the digitally restored director's cut of Stuart Gordon's From Beyond makes its bow on Monsters HD. Since I don't subscribe to that particular channel, this would be even better news if there was word of a DVD release, but I have to imagine that's not too far off. The premiere is this Saturday, June 10 at 8PM. You can see the promo here.

Based on the short story by H.P. Lovecraft, the first ten minutes of the film is quite faithful to the source material. The balance of the film is Gordon's expansion on Lovecraft's idea featuring some classic 1980s gore. With a cast like Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton from Gordon's previous Lovecraft adaptation Reanimator, as well as Ken Foree from the original Dawn of the Dead and more recently The Devil's Rejects, how can you go wrong?

Thanks to the folks at Horror Channel for posting the info.
