"The new unlucky number"

Films: The Beyond (1981)

Alias: Undead Hellspawn

Type: Mystical

Location: Haunted home/Eldritch Area

Height/Weight: From that of tarantulas to average humans.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: If your idea of Hell is a hotel that operates on unseen logic, then first of all, how did you come up with a Hell that specific? Also, it's right here.

History: Painter Schweick was accused of dark magic by a lynch mob in 1927, and killed for it. He never got to finish his magnum opus, which still resides in the Seven Doors Hotel in Louisiana. But that painting was indeed dark, as it is actually a gateway to Hell itself. Now, the hotel is infested with evil and dead walking to kill the living, but mostly in room 36.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: Long story short, everyone involved with this place is in Hell now. A barren, parched wasteland is the true Hell, and now we can only hope the hotel itself gets demolished for bad customer reviews.

Powers/Abilities: Total omnipotence.

Weakness: None.

Scariness Factor: 4.5-Under no circumstances should you EVER enter this hotel. A gateway to Hell is not so easily closed, and sometimes, the minions won't remain just in the building to kill what they want...

Trivia: -This film was not released in the U.S. until 1983.

-This was the second film in Lucio Fulci's "Gates of Hell" trilogy, preceded by "City of the Living Dead" and "The House by the Cemetary".

An awful way to go, but preferable compared to the horror ahead.

From the looks of it, he just wants to fly. Hell does weird things to you.

Are we even talking about the same movie?!

Kingdom of the Spiders: Special Lucio Fulci cut!
Yeah, probably should have kept that in mind before pressing forward.

Hell meets acid!

7 ways to die? Try 1000.

Attack of the Lobotomized Skinheads!

What a way to spend the day.

Is it bad I'm mostly paying attention to that form-fitting dress rather than the despair on display?
