Set against the backdrop of San Francisco, Beyond the Door stars Mills as Jessica Barrett, a young mother who starts to develop strange behaviors whilst pregnant with her third child. Before you can say “split pea soup,” Jessica is displaying signs of full-blown demonic possession — complete with projectile vomiting and fully-rotating head!

Roma (Lombard), whose twin brother has recently been murdered, becomes easy prey for a corrupt medium who arranges a seance to conjure up the lost twin’s supposedly troubled soul. Meanwhile, a murderess accused of strangling her lover awaits her fate in the electric chair. Before she dies, she agrees to donate her body to a scientist for his unique life-after-death research. Eerily, the doctor’s first experiment on the now-dead woman occurs at precisely the same time as the séance. In an evil twist of fate, Roma becomes possessed by the murderess’ wicked spirit.
