What Lies Beneath
11 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

'Pickman's Model' - Bradford Dillman plays Richard Pickman, who is a reluctant art teacher to wealthy society women who shocks them when he unveils a gruesome portrait of a legendary ghoul in a graveyard. One woman in particular is fascinated by him, but he has a dark secret that prevents him getting involved, though her life will still be in danger... Worthy filming of the H.P. Lovecraft story is one of the best, with a memorable monster and ending.

'The Dear Departed' - A phony séance act gets a shock when one of them is killed, but despite being betrayed by them, still wants in on the act... Marginal story is unremarkable but passable time-filler.

'An Act Of Chivalry' - Pointless, though good for one chuckle.
