"the love of money is the root of all evil"
20 October 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

if you like anthology collections like Tales From the Crypt and Creepshow,you should like this movie.i think it's better than both.basically it's five separate stories dealing with the occult.all five stories though separate,begin with an antique shop which hold many strange items.in each story, someone comes int possession of an item thinking the cam away with bargain.but the get much more than the bargained for.this is one of the better horror anthologies i have seen.each story is genuinely eerie and suspenseful and i got shivers down my spine more than a few times.there is even a bit of humour in in of the stories.the only downside is the readily apparent low budget.still,the stories are effective enough and the acting superb.so the low budget isn't really a a huge problem.for me, From Beyond the grave is an 8.5/10
