From Beyond ★★

From Beyond is a campy 1980s horror flick from the team that created Re-animator.

While I enjoyed Re-animator, From Beyond turned out to go... well... beyond my camp tolerance. The caricatural overacting irritated me, and the plot is a tedious mashup of horror classics such as Poltergeist and The Evil Dead, mixed with a considerable bit of David Cronenberg, but with the depth of a second-rate children's film.

The animatronics and creature sculpts were OK though.
