Five strangers board a train and are joined by a mysterious fortune teller who offers to read their Tarot cards.

The first of the “anthology” horror movies to be made by Amicus. Co-Producer Milton Subotsky is quoted as saying he was inspired to write a multi-story horror movie by his admiration for “Dead of Night (1945),” which used a similar format.

Actor Donald Sutherland also appeared in Hammer’s 1965 thriller “Fanatic”.
