Beyond and Back



Beyond And Back is a 1978 documentary released by Sunn Classic Pictures that deals with the subject of near death experiences. This was one of the first movies to explore this subject and pose the question "Is there life after death". The feature film was narrated by Brad Crandall and claimed to have used actual accounts of what researchers now refer to as near-death experiences or NDE's. Generally speaking, a patient who has experienced an NDE has clinically "died" (lost some or all vital signs) but then has been revived through the use of modern medical technology or procedures (such as CPR). Some people who have experienced an NDE have given very vivid accounts of their experiences which, in turn, has caused some in the medical field to take interest and initiate research projects into the phenomenon. For example, when Ernest Hemingway was a young soldier serving in World War I, he was badly wounded by an exploding shell during a battle. He claimed to have felt his soul leave his body, fly around for a bit, and then he returned. The famed author later drew upon this actual experience in his novel A Farewell to Arms. Many others told of going through a long dark tunnel and seeing a bright light at the other end that they knew was a divine being. They spoke of seeing a review of their entire lives and knowing that they were being given a second chance to return to their former lives. This feature further revealed a study that the producers claimed had been done by scientists involving terminal patients. These dying people were said to have been placed on a special bed attached to a sensitive scale. Doctors determined that in each case there was a loss of a few ounces at the exact moment of death. The doctors were said to have wondered if that could possibly have been the soul leaving the body.

  1. Notwithstanding leasing or acquiring these things can be in all respects expensive; particularly if the short film is going to set aside a long effort to really be shot.free movies streaming online

  4. I can't believe you found this movie!
    I saw this as a child when it was originally showing in theaters and I never forgot about it.
    I just searched it on YouTube not thinking I would actually find it. Thanks for posting this!

  5. I know a retired doctor who told me that when he was a young intern he was given the graveyard shift at a hospital and was the only doctor on his floor. An old terminally ill man coded (died) early in the morning when the sun was just rising. They brought in the equipment to try to resuscitate him but couldn't. When he was alone with the body standing at the foot of the bed filling out the chart, door shut, curtains drawn, about 15 minutes later, the room suddenly filled with a bright blue/white fog that make its own light. He stood there in silence, not moving, just looking. Then he saw human figures moving around in the fog in total silence. It lasted about 30 seconds to a minute. Then it all vanished.
    He kept quiet about what he saw for many years. Eventually he told two other doctors, one of which I also knew, and they both told him that they knew what he saw because they had seen the same thing.

  6. I never forget this movie when I first saw it as 12-year old boy with my mother. It reinforced what I already believed about the hereafter. My mom has since gone to be with the Lord so seeing this movie again after all these years is especially tender. I spent many years since then trying to find or purchase this movie but to no avail. What a pleasant surprise it was to find this movie here and relive cherished moments I shared with her. Thank you for sharing it and now I look forward to sharing it with my 12-year old daughter. But somehow I dont think she is going to appreciate it as much as I did. lol

  7. I saw this movie at the theater with two friends, Dan and Doug, Didn't seem to scare Doug at all during the hell scenes. I remember looking at him and he was just watching. Doug passed away Jan 2017, he was 53, I wonder what Doug is doing in Heaven?
