This British production looks handsome enough under Freddie Francis's direction, and for those who say they'd watch Ralph Richardson in anything, well, here's your chance.

Of the five tales "Poetic Justice" and "Blind Alleys" are the standouts.

It's put together something like the comic books, with the old Crypt Keeper acting as host and narrator. In the movie version, he is played with suitable ham by Ralph Richardson.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

A fun anthology movie, helped along by an all-star cast and the direction of Freddy Francis. Much better than a lot of the horror anthologies that followed.

| Original Score: 3/5

Not as enjoyably over-the-top as the subsequent HBO series would be, but a decent British horror anthology.

| Original Score: 3/5

The tales vary on the fright front, with highlights including Collins as a psychotic housewife, horror menace Cushing on the receiving end for once, and a genuinely surprising ending.

Schlock dressed up with fine acting is still schlock.

Unfortunately, the only style exhibited by Freddie Francis, who directed the film, and Milton Subotsky, who wrote it, is in their dumb appreciation for ancient plot devices, and especially in their high-handedness with other people's stories.
