The Beyond - Shameless 2020 - 2K edition
Additionally, and for the first time ever The Beyond is presented with four different versions of the prologue, seamlessly branched:
The now accepted standard sepia
The original colour camera footage
The B&W version
A new fourth-way: presented as an homage to director Lucio Fulci and Director of Photography, DOP Sergio Salvatti.
For this new alternative prologue version, for the 1st time ever, Shameless have used the restored colour camera footage as a base on which a new golden toning was applied in reference to known considerations from DOP Salvatti. All other previous sepia tint were monochrome. The result of applying tone over the newly rediscovered and restored colour footage is that the reds of the gore are now strikingly visible and all the light sources such as the torches and car headlights are much more luminous and enhancing a painterly chiaroscuro never presented before.
When jaded New Yorker (Catriona MacColl) inherits a New Orleans hotel, she calls on composed local doctor (David Warbeck) to contain the inexplicable and increasingly gory accidents that are plaguing the building and its surroundings.
But soon the Gates of Hell themselves open under the hotel, rendering their fight futile as the Dead emerge to walk the earth...
