Prrrfect Trailers: BEYOND THE DOOR (1974)

Released in the U.S. on July 31, 1975
Starring Juliet Mills, Richard Johnson, Gabriele Lavia, Nino Segurini, Elizabeth Turner
Directed by Ovidio G. Assonitis

Italy’s Beyond the Door was little more than a blatant rip-off of The Exorcist, so much so that Warner Brothers filed a copyright infringement lawsuit (which they won). However, this TV spot for the film’s U.S. release was enough to terrify me when I was 11 years old. I finally saw the film years later as an adult and found it to be unintentionally-hilarious junk. Still, the trailer remains fairly chilling. See if you agree.
