Beyond The Grave [2011]

Beyond The Grave
 Shot in the city of Porto Alegre, south of Brazil, BEYOND THE GRAVE is an art-house mixture of road movie, spaghetti western and different horror sub-genres such as zombie and black magic. "I tried to bring in everything I had learned about cinema and humanity from the beginning of my conscious life till the moment of locking the final cut.  I think we should be respectful of genre, of course, but a rigid tone is more important than a rigid genre. We’re in an age where amalgamations are common nature in art. Cinema shouldn’t be excluded", believes the Brazilian filmmaker. 
 
I was approached by producer Isidoro B. Guggiana to look at this film "Beyond The Grave" [Porto dos Mortos] and I had a good feeling about this film and it turned out to be a great one. This Brazilian film set in the apocalyptic future where there is good and bad that is it, one man's fight to keep the peace. Though that peace comes with a price... that is everything. I felt it had a Road Warrior meets Dust Devil with a dabble of any of the Living Dead films. It is focused on the vigilante on his search for the Dark Rider to fill the void that made the world what it is...destruction. It finds itself to be on the verge of being a cult classic as I find a very strong message throughout the entire film. It has received several awards nationally and internationally and deserves everyone... If you get a chance to see this film, I suggest you do.
