MY THOUGHTS: A blend of one genre too many.
REVIEW::"Beyond The Grave" is a horror/action/post-apocalyptic entry from filmmaker Davi de Oliveira Pinheiro. Where a post-apocalyptic world is ruled by pretty much anyone and everyone. Depending on what side of town you're on. But in the midst of all of this chaos, destruction, and death...a not-so-nice renegade cop, hunts a demonically possessed serial killer.
|But anyone knows that movies where gun play, fighting, and post-apocalyptic planets, worlds, or countries are involved. They need decent sized budgets. It's too bad this movie went ultra-shoestring. Ithurt what otherwise could've been a very interesting story. But the films ambition and determination to tell a fresh, end-of-society or end-of-humanity tale was not dented by the lack of proper production funding. The pic knows what's at its disposal, and just goes with it. And expects the audience or viewer to as well.|
