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.

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...

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!!!

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.

Amicus Productions were a sort of "sister", company to Britain's famed Hammer Studios and in their heyday during the late 1960's and early 1970's had as their speciality these multi-story horror tales that all had a linking element as their basis. In the case of "From Beyond the Grave", made quite late in Amicus' production of these horror tales, this link is a strange little antique store called Temptations Ltd. run by an equally strange and mysterious proprietor (Peter Cushing). Each of the four stories included revolves around various individuals who make a purchase from the shop but in one way or another attempt to either steal or short change what they owe the Proprietor for the items in question. All pay dearly for their attempts to "get a better deal" and find that they would have been better off paying full price.

Story One is titled "The Gate Crasher", and involves Edward Charlton (David Warner), a trendy Londoner who manages to cut down the asking price of an Antique French Mirror by saying falsely that the mirror is not all original. Edward however gets more than he bargained for when once placed in his apartment an evil spirit from beyond the mirror begins to take control of his life driving Edward to even commit murder to satisfy the spirit's lust for blood which will enable him to grow in strength and escape from his confines behind the mirror. Once this is achieved Edward finds himself in an eerie replay of the spirits own situation trapped behind the mirror pane trying to lure other owners into commiting murder for him.
