Fast forward to the 21st Century and we have a new anthology film to watch - Grave Tales.
The film opens with a researcher looking into gravestones and coming across a grave digger (the excellent Brian Murphy, probably best known for George & Mildred) who proceeds to tell her tales about the inhabitants of the plots...
Watching the four stories (featuring old Hammer hands Eduard de Souza and Damien Thomas) I had a strange sense of deja vu and then another connection dawned on me: three of the tales were based on short comic strips from the 70s magazine House of Hammer
One Man's Meat sees a butcher disposing of a body with unforeseen consequences.
Callistro's Mirror has a collector taking extreme measures to acquire a valuable mirror which has a dark history.
The Hand tells of two convicts on the run - one of which is determined not to go back to prison, at any cost.
the fourth story (and in my view, the weakest) features Norman J Warren (director of Satan's Slaves) as a pop video director with a band willing to pay any price for success.
At only 75 mins it's a short running time and nips among quit nicely. It's worth catching up with (despite some dodgy dubbing) but I'm surprised Dez Skinn hasn't sued them yet!
