The first of Amicus’ famed anthology films, this devious little portmanteau remains one of the studio’s most enjoyable productions. On the train home from work, five ill-fated strangers have their fortunes told by a mysterious Tarot reader. While it’s hard to pick a favourite tale among this wickedly humorous quintet, Christopher Lee’s turn as a snooty art critic who gets his comeuppance is an undoubted highlight.
