Todd from “The Bitter End” chose the 80’s Body Horror Classic “From Beyond” for Episode 5 of the Flixwatcher Podcast!
Todd is a big horror fan and first watched From Beyond as a young boy on VHS and it has stuck with him since then. The episode 005 crew were divided between horror and (Todd and Helen) non-horror (Tom and Kobi) fans so it would be interesting to see what they made of it.
The split was actually quite interesting in that the Bitter End guys both looked favourably on From Beyond . In particular, Todd managed to eek out some more points based on his enthusiasm and allegorical theories behind the film.
This was a really interesting choice for a Flixwatcher episode so early on in our run and goes to highlight the depth and variety of choices on the Netflix platform.
The overall Flixwatcher Rating for From Beyond is a surprising 3.3! This was not expected going into the recording session but goes to show the courage in Todd’s conviction.
From Beyond scored highest in the “Engagement Score” bracket and lowest in the repeat viewing score. Once may be enough!

Flixwatcher Spotify Playlist
There were no tunes from the film itself that we’d bring into the podcast BUT due to a nice piece of film trivia we’ve added “Intergalactic” by the Beastie Boys into the fold. Why? You’ll have to listen to the episode to find out…
