ReviewSource The SF, Horror and Fantasy Film Review
Review From Beyond the Grave was one of the best horror anthologies to come from Amicus...From Beyond the Grave was the directorial debut of Kevin Connor who would go onto become a modest name in genre cinema. It was actually one of Connor's best films and he demonstrates exceptional directorial style. Particularly good are the seance scenes in the first episode where Connor conducts some inventive 360 degree pans with a candle that explodes between a flickering flame and a jet in the foreground. The murders in this segment are vividly staged with Connor creating some marvelously sinister images of David Warner standing about in bloodstained clothes and a totally wrecked apartment...The second and third stories go for a much more tongue-in-cheek tone. The second is a veritable EC Comics tale - in fact is a more successful EC-type story than Amicus's two actual EC adaptations, Tales from the Crypt (1972) and The Vault of Horror (1973), were.
