From Beyond the Grave
A British anthology horror movie, not dissimilar from Tales From the Crypt and Vault of Horror. This one has Peter Cushing running an antique shop, where strange, supernatural fates befall the customers who try to screw him over or rob him or whatever. The best story is a more comedic one where a dude is followed around by an "elemental," a nasty little invisible creature that becomes very territorial. Some decent atmosphere, nice production design, and excellent cast (also including David Warner and Donald Pleasance) make From Beyond the Grave a decent one of these movies, but far from the best.
