Okay, this was a decent picture of anthology horror. Four stories here, possible futures .
The first is one where a greedy nephew kills his uncle, only to unleash an ancient horror.
The second, a young starlet does anything to get ahead, to her tragic demise.
The third, a grasping girlfriend confronts her boyfriend's haunted piano. This is the silliest of the four, really.
The fifth involves a Poe fanatic who discovers a fellow Poe fanatic has resurrected the writer, with horrific results. Probably the best story, but Jack Palance looks silly trying to affect an effete British accent.
