The Top 400 Horrors #400 - 'From Beyond the Grave' (1974)
400. From Beyond the Grave (1973; Kevin Connor; Film)
Amazing, dark, campy horror from England. It shows its age marvelously. I found it on Amazon Instant Video. The story focuses on a dingy, dusty curio-shop off the hustle and bustle of a main street in any-town, UK. Peter Cushing runs the shop, chewing on a pipe and the scenery like a pro. People enter, people steal, cheat or rip-off this clever codger and then we see the results. The eeriest story involved a little girl getting revenge on her parents. Yikes!
It also stars David Warner (a favorite of mine) and Donald Pleasance.
