From Beyond the Grave (1973)
96 min.
Directed by Kevin Connor.
With Peter Cushing, Ian Bannen, Ian Carmichael, Diana Dors, Margaret Leighton, Donald Pleasence, Nyree Dawn Porter, David Warner, Ian Ogilvy, Lesley-Anne Down, Jack Watson.
Good Amicus anthology feature adapted from four short stories by R. Chetwynd-Hayes.

The antique shop Temptations Ltd. is run by owner Cushing who exacts revenge upon any who steal or cheat him.

Good performances buoy the four stories, including The Gate Crasher where David Warner (from The Omen, et al) unleashes an evil spirit trapped inside a mirror.

Look also for Pleasence in the solid segment An Act of Kindness.

The remaining stories include The Elemental and The Door.

The whole thing is known alternately either as Creatures or also as Tales from the Beyond.
