#GETTHECUSHIONITSCUSHING: The final moments of the Amicus film 'FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE perhaps represent the neatest of endings of any Amicus film. Nothing works better than a series of scenes involving a character that we just can't wait to get his or her 'just deserts'. The climax of the last scene, does just that, and even leads us into a just as neat wrap to the end of the film, 'Drop in anytime, I am always open . . .' An invitation to come again. Sadly, as an idea of a sequel or television series, that invitation was never followed up. The wind had finally gone out of the sails of the UK film industry, and finding finance for any project, was getting tough, even though 'FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE' was one of Amicus films top money earners. We've sang the praises of it's tight stories, not fat on the bone of this one, the performances, the whole package. With the exception of Amicus films first portmanteau film, DR TERRORS HOUSE OF HORRORS, and 'TORTURE GARDEN' 'FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE' is one of the series, that didn't take it's title or source material from the comic books that inspired Amicus films, ' TALES FROM THE CRYPT AND VAULT OF HORROR.
WITH EACH STORY in 'FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE' we see the bad guys come unstuck. The liars, the cheats, the unsavory. A sticky end brought about the kindly old man in the that shop!
