From Beyond the Grave

Anybody that isn't familiar with Amicus may be fooled into believing that their films are actually Hammer films. They very much resemble what Hammer was doing at the time. Amicus, however, specialized in anthology films. They are frame stories where one character is usually tellig 1 or more other characters about events that had happened. Creep Show is an anthology. In From Beyond the Grave, the main story revolves around a shop owner (Peter Cushing) that keeps getting screwed over by customers in one way or another. Rest assured that they all get what's coming to them.

The Amicus productions are something to check out if you haven't seen them. I have yet to find one of their anthologies that I didn't find entertaining.

Here is From Beyond the Grave.
