Beyond Terror (1980) -- Excellent Spanish horror film high on the gore and sleaze monitor. Bikers, zombies and so much more. Only ever available in Spanish language. A very rarely seen movie presented fully uncut.A quartet of homicidal youth delinquents on motorbikes goes on a bloody rampage: After gunning down all the staff and customers of a small bar and taking two hostages, they intrude the home of an old lady and kill her too. Dying, she spells a curse on the murderous youths who continue their escape and reach an old, now desecrated church in the middle of nowhere. At this creepy place, strange things start to happen...
What a delightfully obscure and sleazy production! This strange, but thoroughly original film has to be seen to be believed. The actors are rather bad, the production values are very low, but the affair never ever becomes tedious - there are just too many stunning ideas thrown into the plot for good measure, and most of them work. One particularly insane sequence has the gang celebrating sort of a black mass in the church, during which one of the gang members proclaims crazy and stupid things while masturbating! Towards the climax, even the living dead have their appearance in the most chilling sequence of the film. And, of course, there's also some gore for splatter freaks (one scene being very splashy).
MAS ALLA DEL TERROR is unique in many ways. It's neither a masterpiece nor a technically remarkable movie, and the logic of the plot is often non-existent. But it's such an energetic bag of surprises and fun details that it makes a cool partytape for all lovers of exciting trash.
