Lucio Fulci's THE BEYOND from Arrow Video (reviewed/compared)

I've reviewed Arrow's check disc of THE BEYOND for DVDBeaver.  It is already known that the HD master provided to Arrow featured the opening sequence incorrectly in black and white (it was shot in color and processed in a yellowish sepia look as seen on all previous releases other than the full color German prints).  Arrow has already issued a statement promising to look into this, so the DVDBeaver comparison with the Anchor Bay disc should be considered somewhat of a placeholder review as we are not certain whether Arrow will reassess the transfer of the rest of the film or just the opening.
