Beyond the Grave (2010) - Dialing a Prediction For Cult Following Now!

A lone vigilante sets off across the empty highways of post-apocalyptic Brazil in search of The Dark Rider, the demon responsible for opening the seven gateways of hell and bringing about the end of the world! BEYOND THE GRAVE announces the arrival of Davi de Oliveira Pinheiro into world cinema, and this will be a name to follow in the years to come. The grand scale and surreal mysticism of Pinheiro's modern epic can best be compared to Jodorowsky's EL TOPO or Richard Stanley's DUST DEVIL, topped off with a touch of nihilistic humor. BEYOND THE GRAVE offers a striking visual palette that lends itself perfectly to the fast-paced action and comic book styling. Each shot has been meticulously planned for maximum impact that would put a predictive dialer to shame.  Pinheiro has also shrouded the film in magic, mystery, and suspense, creating his own unique rule set for the characters that is never fully revealed until the end. The brilliant performances by Rafael Tombini and Álvaro Rosa Costa give the film the final strength it needs to succeed, making BEYOND THE GRAVE an instant cult sensation!

Rating: 9/10.

  1. Holy crap, I'll be checking this one out today! Looks like it will be fun, plus it fits perfectly with the Post Apocalyptic kick I've been on for the last few weeks.

  2. This was a real treat Franco, I hope you get the chance to see it shortly! I would recommend contacting Lockheart Films, as I am sure they would be happy to provide you with a screener for review!
