5.0 out of 5 stars At The Earth's Core, June 27 2000
This review is from: Earth's Core [Import] (VHS Tape)
This film is set in the Victorian period, where scientist Peter Cushing and his assistant Doug McClure use a large drilling machine to travel from one side to another of a Welsh mountain, but instead drill it the Earth's core where they discover a world ruled by flying men-reptiles and their soldiers over human slaves. They find large monsters and insects. Both men are captured by monster soldiers and after Doug escapes during a rebellion, he returns with a fellow warrior, Ra, to destroy the monster rulers. Both are captured by the soldiers, but Doug kills a large hippopotamus and frees Peter, Ra, and Gak, a old warrior, together with a female warrior, Te'a (Caroline Munro), and a cowardly warrior, Ugal. Ugal tells Jubal, an ugly warrior, to kill Doug so that Jubal can marry Te'a, but Doug kills Jubal and helps unite the divided tribes to destroy the monster rulers. The tribes destroy the rulers' city, but Ra dies and Ugal is killed whilst trying to escape in the city. Te'a tells Doug she cannot go with him to his world, and when Peter and Doug return, they end up outside the US White House.

This film describes 4 stories told to psychologist Robert Powell by patients at a remote English countryside house. Powell is invited to be interviewed as house doctor by psychologist Patrick Magee, who promises Powell that he will get the job if he can recognise which one of the 4 patients is the former Dr B Starr, who was previously the house's chief psychologist but now a patient himself/herself. Powell meets Reynolds (played by Geoffrey Baldyon) who looks after the patients. The first story describes a woman, Barbara Parkins, who became crazy after she discovered both the dead remains of a woman whose husband Parkins was to be married and the dead husband himself. He killed his voodoo-trained wife and cut her into small pieces, but she later killed him. The second story describes Barry Morse as a tailor who needs money to pay his rent and makes a suit for Peter Cushing's dead son, hoping to be paid well. After the suit is made, Cushing tells Morse that he has no money and demands the suit. Morse kills Cushing with a gun and uses the suit to bring Cushing's son alive. His son kills Morse's wife, and Morse becomes made. The third story describes Charlotte Rampling having an imaginary friend, Britt Ekland, who kills and makes Rampling the murderer. The last story describes Herbert Lom as a scientist who makes toy mannekins and wills his soul into one of them. Powell leaves to tell Magee he is not interested in working at the house, and Magee is killed by a knife from a toy mannekin. Powell crushes the mannekin with his foot, and finds human remains in the toy. Lom screams, and Powell sees Reynolds, who tells Powell that Lom's body was crushed. Powell tells Reynolds that Lom was Dr B Starr and goes to Reynolds' office to telephone the police. Reynolds tries to stop him but Powell discovers a dead body in his office, whom Reynolds tells him to be the real Reynolds. The fake Reynolds is actually Dr B Starr, who strangles Powell to death. The film ends with Dr Starr posing as another doctor at the home and inviting another person to interview. This is the one of 6 Amicus films consisting of short stories. The other films are Tales From The Crypt, The House That Dripped Blood, The Vault of Horror, From Beyond The Grave, and Dr Terror's House of Horrors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tales from the Crypt (1972), June 22 2000
This review is from: Tales from the Crypt (VHS Tape)
This film describes how 5 people get lost in an English countryside monastry and later meet a monk, Sir Ralph Richardson, who tells them stories. The first story describes Joan Collins killing her older husband and stealing from his safe, only to be killed by an escaped killer dressed up as Santa Claus. The second story describes Ian Hendry leaving his wife and two children so that he can stay with a friend, only for their car to crash and Hendry come back from the dead to find his wife remarried, his mistress blind, and himself as corpse. The third story describes Richard Johnson who is forced to sell his items due to over-spending and his wife who makes three wishes from an ancient Oriental statue. The first wish is for more money, after which, Johnson's solicitor, Roy Dotrice, tells him of more money. While Johnson is driving to meet Dotrice, he dies and his car crashes. Dotrice visits his widow, who makes a second wish that Johnson return before the car crash, resulting in coffin-carriers returning Johnson's body in a coffin. The lead carrier explains that Johnson died of a heart attack before the car crash. The last wish is for Johnson to live forever, which makes him in agony, as his body is filled with embalming liquid. His wife cuts him up to stop his agony, but he is still living. The fourth story tells of Robin Philips, who wants his house to have a higher market price, and is persecuting retired Peter Cushing because he will not sell his house - this is keeping the market price down. After Philips makes the police take Cushing's dogs away (for not having a licence, although one later escapes and returns), tells the neighbours to keep their children away from Cushing, and sends him hate mail, Cushing commits suicide, and returns exactly a year later from his grave, killing Philips by cutting out and wrapping his heart. The last story describes how ex-Army Major Nigel Patrick forces his blind hospital patients to suffer from cold and lack of good food, so that he can use the money for himself in buying paintings. The patients, lead by Patrick Magee, kidnap Patrick's dog first and later Patrick, starving them of food, and then build a maze with razors on the walls. Both Patrick and his dog are let free, and his dog eats him as a result of its hunger. Afterwards, all 5 people ask the monk who he is, and he tells them they are already dead. The film ends with all 5 falling into a pit of fire. This is one of of 6 Amicus films consisting of short stories. The other films are Dr Terror's House of Horrors, The House That Dripped Blood, The Vault of Horror, From Beyond The Grave, and Asylum.

This review is from: From Beyond the Grave (VHS Tape)
The film's plot is good, with Peter Cushing as a London antiques shop keeper, whose shop is theived by customers. These customers are killed by the items they stole. David Warner cheats Cushing to get a mirror for a lower price, but is himself killed by a ghost demon living the mirror after the demon has forced Warner to kill women for him. Ian Bannen steals a war medal from Cushing's shop, and later meets a witch and her war crippled father (Angela and real-life father Donald Pleasance) who kill him in answer to Bannen's son's prayers. Ian Carmichael puts a lower price on a snuff box, cheating Cushing of the real price, but is himself killed when a demon from the box possesses his wife (Nyree Dawn-Porter) to kill him. Only Ian Ogilvy gives Cushing the real price for an old door, and while Cushing counts the money, a demon from the Blue Room (created when the door is put up in Ogilvy's room) attacks both him and his wife (Lesley Anne-Down). Also, a robber tries to steal money from Cushing's shop, but is killed in a box of spikes. This film is one of 6 made by Amicus, each film having short stories within them. The other films are Dr Terror's House of Horrors, Tales From the Crypt, The Vault of Horror, The House That Dripped Blood, and Asylum.

The film's locations are very good - the Arab cafe and desert scenes. The film's plot is well done, with Peter Cushing, John Richardson, and Bernard Cribbins starring as three ex-British Army soldiers who travel from Palestine in 1918 to the lost city of Kuma because John is believed to be Kuma's High Priest. Christopher Lee also stars as a priest from Kuma.

This film has a very good plot of HG Wells (Malcolm McDowell) following former friend John Stevenson alias Jack the Ripper (David Warner) from 19th century London to 20th San Francisco via Wells' time machine. The scenes were Wells copes with 20th San Francisco culture are funny, and both actors perform well.
