Brilliant tribute to British/American horror studio
on 24 November 2015
Superb telling of the Amicus story. I'm sure that there are books that go into certain details in more depth but this is made with genuine devotion. The narrator is clearly entranced by the subject and his enthusiasm drew me in. There are many wonderful interviews with those involved with the making of the movies and they all have fascinating stories to tell. I remember watching From Beyond the Grave on late night TV in the late 80s or thereabouts and it stayed with me although at that point I had never heard of Amicus. I guess these films are rarely if ever shown on TV nowadays as they were already relatively old when I first encountered them in the 80s. Thanks to the internet and DVD'S they are drawing in a new generation of fans as well as older viewers revisiting them. The end of the feature features a very moving tribute to the late Peter Cushing who seems to have been universally loved by those he worked with.
