“That’s how it is. Night after night we have to retell the stories of the evil we did…for all eternity!”

Five different men go into an elevator. When they come out they’re in a locked room with a table, five chairs and something to drink. One by one they talk about their frightening and recurring dreams. As in the “Tales from the Crypt”(1972) 5 scary short stories is connected by 5 doomed people.

I decided to continue on this flick, after watching “Tales from the Crypt”. Also based on the comics from the 50’s. It’s a double-billed blu-ray. Even though the shock effect is pretty mild, it’s good graveyard fun. I’ve started loving these Amicus-productions and find them better than many Hammer-productions from the same area. A fine British cast again, and a movie well worth checking out!
