being stuck in a train car with Donald Sutherland, Peter Cushing as a spooky gypsy, and Christopher Lee as a fussy art critic and magic skeptic would be a slice of heaven for me so anytime the movie leaves them I'm a bit disappointed. lacks terror. plant segments dumb;broke down when a character is menaced by off-screen crew member poking him with a leafy stick. . Sutherland and of course Lee really shine in each of their turns.

Decent horror anthology from the reliable Amicus stable, bolstered by a strong cast; a young Donald Sutherland looks like he's from a different planet next to the Brit stalwarts. I remember Roy Castle from Record Breakers back in the day; he should've been in more films. The stories aren't brilliant (the final one is probably the highlight), but they're executed with enough talent and enthusiasm to make this worth a look.

Brit horror titans Cushing and Lee are in top form in Francis's fun fright anthology. Sutherland puts in one of his earliest screen appearances as a doctor.

60's horror anthologies have such charm that it's impossible to dislike any of them. Especially when they've got a cast like this one!

Vividly shot and lots of great acting (Sutherland, Lee, Cushing), but it felt made for television.

If I were 13, I'd probably give this a 100 but there've been so many stories since then. As a Hammer fan it's always nice to watch Cushing & Lee (despite Cushing's awful eyebrow makeup), but not only are these tales predictable, but except for the first & last, they don't even have a twist. The plant kills; Damballah shows he's not to be trifled with; & the evil art critic gets his comeuppance, the end. Am I being too harsh when Rod Serling regularly pulled off way better shorts before this?

Quality horror anthology from Amicus Studios. Strong cast with e.g. Lee, Cushing, Bernard Lee and young Donald Sutherland. Solid direction by Freddie Francis. No weak parts, but my clear favorites were the most traditional Gothic ones (1st and last stories). Killer plant segment offered plenty of unintended(?) hilarity.

Had some great ideas for the short stories that were all handled quite well but Peter Cushing is under used here. Much more of Twilight Zone / Outer Limits feel with horror twists, which I really enjoyed. Very fresh.

A top-flight example of British genre moviemaking.

Boring, crappy effects, the framing device made no sense. The Christopher Lee story was amusing enough but the rest of the other stories, and there were so many of them, didn't feel worth it at all.

I loved this, I generally like anthologies and give extra points for good wrap-a-rounds and this one had a great wrap-a-round. Everything about this movie was on point.

Lee's segment was really fun but all the others were middling.

Some stories deserved to be longer, some should have been cut. Amicus has better anthologies than this one, yet I still found some enjoyment here.
