5.0 out of 5 stars From Beyond the Grave (1975) June 16, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
The film's plot is good, with Peter Cushing as a London antiques shop keeper, whose shop is theived by customers. These customers are killed by the items they stole. David Warner cheats Cushing to get a mirror for a lower price, but is himself killed by a ghost demon living the mirror after the demon has forced Warner to kill women for him. Ian Bannen steals a war medal from Cushing's shop, and later meets a witch and her war crippled father (Angela and real-life father Donald Pleasance) who kill him in answer to Bannen's son's prayers. Ian Carmichael puts a lower price on a snuff box, cheating Cushing of the real price, but is himself killed when a demon from the box possesses his wife (Nyree Dawn-Porter) to kill him. Only Ian Ogilvy gives Cushing the real price for an old door, and while Cushing counts the money, a demon from the Blue Room (created when the door is put up in Ogilvy's room) attacks both him and his wife (Lesley Anne-Down). Also, a robber tries to steal money from Cushing's shop, but is killed in a box of spikes. This film is one of 6 made by Amicus, each film having short stories within them. The other films are Dr Terror's House of Horrors, Tales From the Crypt, The Vault of Horror, The House That Dripped Blood, and Asylum.

5.0 out of 5 stars Needful Things... September 28, 2007
FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE is another great anthology movie from Amicus (Tales From The Crypt, Vault Of Horror, Asylum, Dr. Terror's House Of Horrors, etc.). This time out we get Peter Cushing as the owner of an antique shop named "Temptations", where customers get far more than they bargained for! Each patron is presented w/ the opportunity to somehow swindel Cushing's character, and walk out w/ some item. In THE GATE CRASHER, David Warner gets a priceless, 400yo mirror, by pretending it's a piece of junk. Once he gets it home, Warner finds out that his prize possession comes w/ a costly, bloody catch! In AN ACT OF KINDNESS, a man takes a medal from the shop in order to prove his military valor to a street-merchant (Donald Pleasance), who invites him home for tea. Pleasance introduces the man to his daughter who is nothing like the sweet gal she appears to be! THE ELEMENTAL concerns a man who cheats Cushing for a snuff-box, and ends up w/ a tiny, invisible, and quite homicidal demon on his shoulder! A medium offers to help him out, and both comedy and terror ensue! Finally, THE DOOR has a man who buys an ancient, ornately carved door from the shop. He takes it home to put on his supply room. Little does he know, that someone now lives on the other side! Someone very old and extremely evil! FBTG is solidly entertaining throughout it's running time, and delivers good shivers! Add it to your horror-anthology collection...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! September 27, 2007
By Robert
Nice print and uncut. With all the big disappointment lately about the awful Fox cut version of 'Vault of Horror' (which preceeded this in the Amicus horror anthology series), this is a pleasant release to cheer us all up! Trailer in good shape too. Well done Warner!!!

Down an unassuming little side street, lies an unassuming little shop, called Temptations Ltd.
It is advisable upon entering this shop to be honest, and not to lie or cheat the proprietor (Peter Cushing),
no matter how much you may be tempted.
For if you do, something life threatening or at least life changing will happen to you.
Shoplifting here carries a very high price indeed.
With this interesting and highly original premise, I think what follows are some of the best Horror short stories ever committed to film.
"The Gate Crasher" - a rather blood thirsty tale, in the literal sense, with David Warner and involving an Antique Mirror. One of his friends has the idea of holding a seance in the same room as the mirror, a very bad idea..... FEED ME....BLOOD.
"An Act of Kindness" - a man with an unhappy married life tries to impress a down on his luck army veteran, by stealing an important medal from Temptations Ltd. A very bad move, which leads to severe family discord.
"The Elemental" - Ian Carmichael plays a fastidious and devious civil servant, who cheats Cushing out of the full price of a snuff box by substituting a cheaper price tag for the real one. As Cushing amusingly says as Carmichaels character leaves the shop. "I hope you enjoy snuffing it", Carmichaels wife soon corrects his devious habits, permanently.
"The Door" - A young couple purchase a 16th century door, one night the young man opens the door and finds not the stationery cupboard that should be there but a mysterious blue room. And the room's owner isn't the kind of person you would like living next door to.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've always loved horror anthologies, and Amicus produced some true classics (Tales from the Crypt & Asylum are also personal favorites of mine). This one is a fore-runner to TV shows like "Friday the 13th-The Series" and Stephen King's novel Needful Things (which, incidentally, was also clearly inspired by Richard Matheson's short story "The Distributor").

The film revolves around Temptations Ltd., a London antique shop run by a mysterious proprietor (Peter Cushing) whose motto is "Offers You Cannot Resist." The shop provides the wrap-around story for the other 4 tales, each involving a different customer.

Each story involves some element of the supernatural, but unlike "Friday the 13th-The Series" or King's Needful Things, the supernatural aspect is not always linked directly to the item purchased from the antique shop. In 2 of the stories, the customer encounters the supernatural (albeit unknowingly) even before he sets foot inside Temptations, Ltd. In the other 2 stories, the item purchased from the shop is tied directly to the supernatural, as the item is "haunted" or "cursed" of some malevolent being or spirit.

However, the OUTCOME of each story is very much related to the manner in which the customers deal with the shop's proprietor. Cheat the proprietor, steal from him, or attempt to deceive him, and your future becomes very grim, for as Cushing laments in the final scene, "The love of money truly is the root of all evil."

Very highly recommended for classic horror film enthusiasts.

A fun way to spend a rainy afternoon. Peter Cushing just gets better as I get older. In my opinion, the material is very adult.
