From Beyond is where eccentric scientist Jeffrey Combs produces such creepy-crawlies as jellyfish, eels, and gland-like creatures. The conduit for these manifestations is a huge glass globe called the Resonator, with which Combs has been experimenting for several months, hoping to discover and harness a new "sixth sense".

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"...a disappointing missed opportunity that never becomes the fun, fast-paced horror effort that one might've expected or hoped for."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"exceptional pulp"
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Has little to offer other than laughs at its campiness, and a reminder of how low budget filmmaking by those with higher aspirations looked, back in the day."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"Works on nearly every level and qualifies as one of the classics of modern horror."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"From Beyond is just as unnerving now as it was in 1986. A boldly ambitious work of cinematic terror."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"I'm not saying it's on the same level as Re-Animator, but From Beyond still ranks pretty damn high on Stuart Gordon's filmography."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"kick ass"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson, sbs.is
"The tone is so ludicrous and deadpan that it practically invites a late night audience to laugh as well as scream."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Faithful to that netherworld of Lovecraft's fiction where otherworldly monsters lurk just under the fabric of our reality."
‑ Jeremiah Kipp, Slant Magazine
"Another quirky horror gem from Stuart Gordon"
‑ Jon Niccum, Lawrence Journal-World
