For fans of Hammer Horror films, Amicus was another studio that felt comfortably close to its style, yet just different enough to bring more diversity to your horror taste. With The Skull, Amicus brought together horror icons Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee in yet another story of the dangers of the darker side of life…

Dan: I love hearing Bobby Ewing preach values. An eye for an eye just makes both people blind. He's so wise.
Sean: Bobby throwing that great punch. Stay away from Annie!
James: I really liked the one with John Ross and Bobby. There's a real crackle between those two actors. John Ross's visit to Sue Ellen was good too,
