TALES FROM THE CRYPT (1972)

Directed by Freddie Francis

Starring Joan Collins and Peter Cushing

One of the greatest horror-anthology film ever made, this was the inspiration for George Romero and Stephen King's excellent "Creepshow" and the late 1980s HBO TV series "Tales From the Crypt."

The stand-out story stars Collins as an adulteress who just murdered her wealthy husband and, while disposing of the body, finds herself unable to call the police when a serial killer shows up dressed as Santa Claus. Cushing stars in a later piece as a beloved old man who commits suicide when he is wrongly accused of molesting the town's children. He rises from the dead to go after the bastard that set him up.

Well-acted and directed, the film was recently reissued on video with a remastered print. A sequel, "Vault of Horror," was made, but doesn't hold a candle to this film.

Highly recommended.
