And of course, I adore endings which implicate something timeless and/or cosmic, such as the climax of 'The Beyond' certainly does.

I don't know what DVD copy most folks own, but the one I have features some interesting interview with Catriona MacColl, David Warbeck, and even Fulci himself. Is it strange that I enjoy hearing stories about Fluci almost (though not quite) as much as the film itself?

And, despite the infamous inconsistencies of its plot (they don't bother me), the film does have substance. Especially interesting is the theme of eyes in this flick. Does evil makes us blind? I believe there's much evidence in the affirmative.
I do love the ending of The Beyond. Some very cool scenes. I can't say that I enjoy 'dreamscape' or illogical films. If I go in knowing the whole film is going to be like that, it helps, but I didn't know that when I saw this the first time, so it was my problem.

There is no match for exorcist

I think The Exorcist (1973) was the classic scariest horror movie of all time. The story the fright or supernatural horror you see in the film is just phenomenal no doubt for that
