    Can anyone think of any other horror anthologies besides the ones I will list here. I love a good anthology, but I've run out of ones to hunt down.

    Creepshow 1,2,3
    Tales From The Crypt
    Vault of Horror
    Dead of Night
    Body Bags
    Trilogy of Terror 1,2
    Tales from the Darkside
    Asylum
    Tales That Witness Madness
    From Beyond The Grave
    The House That Dripped Blood
    The Twilight Zone
    Cats Eye

    Thanks for any suggestions :)

    Trick R Treat would be one from the last couple of years.

    Bizarre (sort of, I guess?)
    Kwaidan
    Black Sabbath
    Dr. Terror's House of Horrors
    Nightmares
    The Monster Club

    Actually, Horrorhound did an issue devoted to anthologies last year. That one would give you a fairly comprehensive list.

    There's a micro-budget one called "Grave Mistakes" made by a local filmmaker from my area named Chris LaMartina. I still haven't seen it, but I hang out with him every now and again and did sound and other production work on one of his films over the summer, so if it's anything like the one I worked on, it should be jolly good fun. It's available on a DVD double feature with another one of his films "Book of Lore," which I think is more of a slower paced supernatural murder mystery.

    Terror Tract.

    With the exception of the first story which I found blah I thought this one was a blast to watch.

    Two Evil Eyes? i know its almost more of a double feature, but it might be considered an anthology...
    Twice Told Tales
    Tales of Terror
    An Evening of Edgar Allan Poe
    Spirits of the Dead

    EDIT: whoops, looks like wesreviews got here first. i'd add an evening of edgar allan poe, though. it may be a one-man show, but its several different stories, so i think it counts. and it's really quite good.

    Yeah, we debated that one too, but I think the only reason we didn't count it was that it's not exactly a "movie". More like, a televised reading of Poe's works. It definitely fits as its own anthology, though.

    Does anyone know anything about WITH FRIENDS LIKE THESE (1981)? It somehow ended up on my amazon wishlist but I have no idea *why* I added it. I feel like I must have seen it mentioned here or on another forum. Anyway, it's a very low-budget anthology film - on DVD but out of print.

    Awesome, thanks for the replies, there's lots in there I have heard of but didn't realise they were anthologies. Special big thanks to WesReviews, that list is excellent and will keep me busy hunting for a while :)
