Really nice restored transfer looking better than I would have thought it might. Amicus classic.

this is a bare bones blu ray release from australia the print is cut ie the shot of heart ripped out of chest aftermath is still missing and looks pretty much like the mgm print from the u.s.a. so the the print is ok but not much of an upgrade the most annoying thing apart from being cut is the still on the back not from tales from the crypt but presumably the tv series as is the lurid cover titles , if you have the mgm release then ask yourself is it worth it ?

Amicus were the best when it came to horror anthology films, this one was produced in 1972 and in my opinion is one of their two best anthologies along with vault of horror.All the stories are very well written with a strong cast and lots of suspense, the transfer is excellent and overall very good value for money

I was talking to a friend who worked at the the cinema that this film premiered at in London , He told me that they turned the huge foyer of the cinema into a graveyard . If my memory serves me right it was at what is now known as The Prince Edward Theatre. Now that is how to premiere a film!!!!!

Excellent compilation of short horror stories, I remembered this from seeing it on TV years ago and have finally got around to buying it. Plenty has been said about the stories themselves and I can think of nothing more to be added to the other reviews.

The last time i caught this 70's gem was late one fri/sat night on bbc2. As with several of this genre, 5 seperate stories linking 4 men, 1 woman-(joan collins) to a mysterious crypt keeper who subliminally seperates this group from a main party touring the caves somewhere or other, and subjects them to listen to there what they think is a possible future outcome based on their actions of their previous months/weeks. Eerie, well told, nice simple clever twisting plots from an era that simply can't be recreated in our changing world today. The second story is the best, the one with the middle-aged business man trying to leave his wife & child to be with his twenty-something girlfriend...weird isnt the word for that episode....Quality!

Second best at the very least - I don't know, maybe equal best with From Beyond the Grave.

There have been some excellent and detailed reviews here so I'll not try and add to them. However, I will suggest that if you are interested, buy it now - the prices of these Amicus pictures fluctuate wildly. Look at the current price of From Beyond the Grave, for instance.

Amicus Produced British version of the EC Terror Tales from the 50's.The Scripts and Atmosphere perfectly Re-Create the Comicbook Style.

This Australian Blu-ray is a good, clear HD print, what we would expect. There are no special features but in my mind, this being one of the 10 best horror flicks of all time, Blu-ray is a must! Worth the upgrade.
