Donald Guarisco

The last of the Amicus anthologies is a fun, old-fashioned example of the form. From Beyond the Grave's collection of tales aren't likely to shock or surprise the seasoned horror fan, but their sense of craft and often witty style are likely to win those fans over. Kevin Connor directs the stories with plenty of gothic flair, giving them a deep-dish sense of atmosphere that is aided by Alan Hume's gorgeous, moody cinematography and a delightfully spooky musical score by Douglas Gamley. Even better, the film has a wonderful cast full of genre vets who give the material their all: Peter Cushing is a delight as the slyly witty antique shop owner, while Donald Pleasance and David Warner bring plenty of menace to their respective tales, each in their own unique way. That said, the biggest scene stealer of the film may be Margaret Leighton, who delivers a hilarious performance as a batty old spiritualist. All in all, From Beyond the Grave is an entertaining example of the horror anthology that is likely to please fans of old-fashioned horror filmmaking. ~ Donald Guarisco, Rovi
