Vault of Horror

1973

Roy Ward Baker
Director
Amicus
Production Company

Portmanteau of mini-horror tales in the Amicus fashion.

1. Murderous fellow finds himself in a strange restaurant.
2. Neat freak husband antagonizes his wife.
3. Collector of magic tricks bites off more than he can chew.
4. Insurance fraud goes awry.
5. Artist revenges himself on greedy patrons.

The second best, after Tales from the Crypt, of these compendiums, the Terry-Thomas episode is a fav of mine. Alas the US DVD has segments 1 and 2 slightly trimmed, which ruins the punchline on the first, oddly the most violent, part 5 seems intact.
