And yes, the music is great. Does anybody remember the camera angle from the descending elevator -- it was a shot of the husband walking towards the camera in a concrete courtyard? I love the funky bit of music there. When I first heard it, I ran to the closet, dug out my gee-tar, quickly learned the notes and starting playing along with it.


Ha, a man after my own heart.  If you're in tune with the vibe of a lot of Euro film scores some of those melodies hit you big time. 

I don't remember the shot you're talking about but I certainly remember the optical freezes.  When I saw it, the theater had gotten really quiet by then.  It was another example of something I love about a lot of exploitation films -- that despite the odds being against them, sometimes they start to WORK in a way that is unexpected and it takes an audience by surprise.  When I was very young the first movie I remember doing that was EVIL DEAD -- I was 13 and saw it in a theater (on a triple feature) and everyone was heckling it... but soon they got really IN to it.  The whole idea that a movie could do that blew me away as a kid.

Just finished my review for DVDBeaver.  I'll post the link when it's up.  I didn't get the screener until Monday so I wonder if Code Red was late getting them out since no other reviews are up yet.

Thanks for the link -- yes, the first review I've seen on line for this disc, which I've been looking forward to.

Great stuff Eric -- and dug your 10 LITTLE INDIANS review on the front page.

The trailer for the Film Ventures release SOMETHING IS OUT THERE (infinitely superior to the film itself which was originally issued as DAY OF THE ANIMALS) uses music from the opening sequence of BEYOND THE DOOR:
