Giorgio Mainardi (Duilio Del Prete) has suddenly died from causes unknown, and it seems everyone in his family has hated him, including his wife Lucy (Bettina Giovannini), his stepmom Hilda (Frances Nacman) and his stepbrother Mario (Pascal Persiano), while he himself had a troubled relationship to his young and innocent son David (Damiano Azzos). The only person who really loved Giorgio - apart from his totally paralyzed father (Paolo Paoloni) who has no way of communicating with the world around him - is his daughter Rosy (Karina Huff), who has been staying away for some years now and who now wants to find out what her father has really died from.

The rest of the family on the other hand try to prevent an autopsy by all means and when an autopsy ruling is made over their heads, they somehow manage to destroy the tissue taken from Giorgio's body and have the man entombed in a hurry.

Somehow, Giorgio must have known about a plot against him, because he has left everything he owns to his daughter Rosy, and to none of his other greedy relatives, not even his son David, plus he starts to appear in Rosy's dreams, telling her to find out who killed her and giving her pointers every now and again. Also, he appears in the dreams of the rest of his family, but in less pleasent form (this also includes a zombie nightmare, actually). Eventually, Rosy finds out a few things, including an affair between her mom Lucy and Mario, and the fact that David was not Giorgio's real son. And she finds out that Giorgio was killed by microscopic shards of glass found in his body, too small to be detected by a superficial autopsy.

But only eventually does Rosy find out the very very cynical truth about her father's death: Hilda, Lucy and Mario have all conspired to kill him and taught little David how to crush a lightbulb and hide the crushed class in icecubes - which the little boy, thinking it to be a game, gladly did.

Rosy confronts her family with the facts she has learned, but she also promises not to report them to the police. Even better, she promises to leave them the house - thing is the house is still haunted by her dead dad ...

 

Lucio Fulci's second-to-last film - and his best film in quite some time (which is not saying much considering the trash he put out in the latter half of the 1980's and early 1990's. What makes this film likeable is its unpretentious mix of giallo and ghost story motives, combined with some relatively restrained gore effects, atmospheric scenes and oedipal undercurrents. However, the film as a whole is far from perfect, it suffers from a (too) low budged, an obviously rushed production schedule, and at best so-so actors that fail to leave any kind of lasting impression. Still it proves that Fulci could still make a decent film if he put his mind to it (though in all honesty Voices from Beyond does not compare to any of his giallo or gore masterpieces) and would have deserved to helm bigger productions - which was hardly likely though considering the state the Italian genre movie production was in in the early 1990's.
