Beyond the Darkness (Buio Omega) by 88 Films

Restored and Uncut on Blu-ray in February

In May 2016, 88 Films started crowdfunding campaign in order to get money for a new 2K scan because they did not consider the existing HD masters being good enough and one of the campaigns was for Beyond the Darkness (Original: Buio Omega, 1979).

In the UK, the movie became one of the infamous "video nasties". As a result, only a cut version of the movie was released. But when 88 Films submitted the uncut version to the BBFC, the movie got a BBFC 18 without any kind of restriction.

The new 2K scan from 16mm negative will be released on Blu-ray on 02/13/2017. In addition to the uncut and uncensored version of the movie, the Blu-ray will contain the following bonus features:

  • Omega Rising: Remembering Joe D’Amato - Feature length documentary looking at the legendary career of notorious filmmaker Aristide Massaccesi A.K.A Joe D’Amato. Featuring interviews with Michele Soavi, George Eastman, Rossella Drudi, Carlo Maria Cordio and more! (65 Mins)
  • Beyond the Darkness Locations - Then and Now
  • Alternate Italian Opening and Closing Credits
  • Trailer

You can order the Blu-ray at Amazon.co.uk.
