Dir: Kevin Connor
Starring: Peter Cushing and Ian Carmichael
Four customers purchase (or take) items from an antiques shop and a nasty fate awaits those who cheat the shop’s Proprietor
Based on stories by R. Chetwynd-Hayes this was the last in a series of seven anthology films from Amicus, the first of which was Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors (1965) (qv). Originally filmed as The Undead, it is also known as The Creatures, Tales from Beyond the Grave, and Tales from the Beyond. In the third story of this film, The Elemental, Ian Carmichael plays a pompous business man who falls prey to an invisible monster. In one scene, he is on a train home from work, illustrated by a rather good ground level shot of a brand new Class 87 electric loco on an express. There then follows a scene onboard the train itself.
