Canuxploitation epic ‘Beyond the Seventh Door’ comes to DVD

by Phil Wheat

The infamous ‘80s Canadian thriller Beyond the Seventh Door comes to DVD for the first time ever courtesy of Severin/Intervision. More than 30 years after its original release, the film remains one of the most ambitious, sought-after and totally bizarre low-budget Canadian features of all time…

Featuring Yugoslavian-born actor Lazar Rockwood – in a notorious debut performance that still astounds Canuxploitation fans – as Boris, an ex-con and career thief who convinces his ex-girlfriend (Bonnie Beck) to help him rob her wealthy boss’ castle. But when Boris discovers that the eccentric millionaire has booby-trapped the building, they’ll have to survive six riddle-triggered rooms of homicidal mayhem in order to claim the treasure.

Writer/director (and future best-selling ‘religious thriller’ author) B.D. Benedikt made his unforgettable filmmaking debut with this bottom-shelf VHS classic, now loaded with special features produced exclusively for its worldwide DVD premiere; including:

  • Audio Commentary with Writer/Director BD Benedikt and Actor Lazar Rockwood, moderated by Paul Corupe
  • Beyond Beyond the 7th Door: Interviews with Writer/Director BD Benedikt, Actor Lazar Rockwood, and Canuxploitation.com’s Paul Corupe
  • The King of Cayenne: An Appreciation of Legendary Toronto Eccentric Ben Kerr
