Although the film was granted a '15' certificate for video in 1987 by the BBFC in the UK, there is no evidence that Warner Home Video actually released this film on any media in the UK until the DVD release in 2007. Indeed, the film was once slated to form part of Warner's 1995 UK 'Terror Vision The Crypt Collection' with a proposed release date of 30 October 1995 quoted in some release catalogs inserted into the collection's earlier releases but this release never materialized until in 2007 it was released in the UK on DVD.

"From Beyond the Grave" is a typical horror anthology from Amicus.It's not very scary or frightening,but it still manages to raise a few chills and a few thrills.Cushing's performance as a creepy shopkeeper is simply fantastic.All the stories are intelligent,well-written and seriously memorable stuff-my favourite is the first one with David Warner,who buys an antique mirror.Anyway the mirror is haunted and demands blood,so Warner brings home a couple of women and proceeds to stab them to death!Eventually the spirit behind the mirror is released,and changes places with hapless Warner.To sum up,if you like British horror give this one a look.8 out of 10.
