I also forgot THE UNCANNY with Cushing.... another worthy edition.
Grismsdyke's resurrection in Poetic Justice,for me was one of the most creepy and effective screen zombie's ever...

Doctor Terrors House Of Horrors is a much cherished tv memory from my childhood. Dead Of Night is superbly creepy ( with a truly nightmarish ending ). Tales From The Crypt wins it for me, though. Great stories, superb performances and real comic book horror. Brilliant.

As well as THE MONSTER CLUB & TALES THAT WITNESS MADNESS though they are hardly classics they have their fans.You've also forgot one of my favourite Italian anthologies (If they count here) BLACK SABBATH which is highly recommended.

Yes it seems rather out of place in the movie & is dull.

Out of place, dull and anti-climactic. A definite mis-fire in Black Sabbath. The "Drop of Water" segment is awesome.

Bloody scary as well that segment & "The Boris Karloff segment "The Wurdalak" is beautifully atmospheric.

As I said,apologies for those I forgot.....
Anyway,had an anthology and Hammer weekend-TALES FROM THE CRYPT,TORTURE GARDEN,VAULT OF HORROR,FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE.....
Torture Garden,unfortunaltely,is the poorest Amicus anthology I've seen,it's okay,but not a patch on the rest.....

I agree Torture Garden is poor with some of the weakest stories of any Amicus anthology.

Peter Cushing in the Edgar Allen Poe segment was the only saving grace....Jack Palance and Burgess Meredith were like fish out of water.
That old Hammer stalwart,Michael Ripper was also grossly underused....
