From Beyond the Grave Review

I first saw From Beyond the Grave in 1975 (at Co-Op City Cinema) when it played in the Bronx.  I saw it with my then bride to be and an old friend who was also a seasoned horror film buff. Naturally, we enjoyed this Amicus film and my future wife thought we were both crazy. Actually, this film was a cut above other Amicus productions since it featured Peter Cushing as the owner of the curio shop (Temptations) and the common link between the tales.  The first story was pretty weak, but the next two were really fine. This DVD is a good buy for any fans of Amicus films.

Briefly, Peter Cushing, who plays the owner of Temptations wants to tempt you with some curio in his shop. If you secumb he provides a "surprise gift with every purchase".  Customers who switch pricing labels, shoplift or some other similar act are dispatched with their special surprise ending.
