    Sorry to say it was not the great Cush mate and why was Francis not available?

    I'm puzzled about Cushing. Who was it who played Grayson?

    Francis was contracted to direct something else--can't remember exactly what, but it fell through in the end.

    In my opinion, humourous segments should be relegated to the middle of a film, or better yet, excised altogether.

    Joss Ackland played Grayson. A good actor who did not get enuff work imho.

    I will accept the Freddie Francis one. It was an American film that just happened to fall thru. A big blow for his career he would have felt.

    Excised all together.

    In my mind I was sure it was Cushing that played Grayson. I checked various sources and they all listed Grayson as being played by Cushing. I re-watched the Waxwork segment and it was indeed Cushing.

    Tales from the Crypt

    1. Who plays the tour guide at the start of the film.

    2. What is the character name of the man killed by Joan Collins' character in the first segment?

    3. How many segments make up the film? (ignoring the framing story)

    4. In Blind Alleys, what do the blind people line the narrow corridor with that they construct?

    5. In Wish you were Here, what does the Richard Greene character see just before his car crash?


    Good luck...

    My mistake. So sorry. Ackland played Neville Rogers.
