Comprising a cascade of clips (61 movies are plundered) that's supposed to illustrate different sorts of suspense-creation, this compilation seems more interested in the pay-offs (when the axe descends, the head explodes). With Allen and Pleasence as hosts, you can be sure nothing very original is going to get said; and the organisation of the extracts is never especially meaningful. But it's undeniable that these Jack Horner movies - stick in your thumb, pull out a plum - do collar the attention, no matter how bland the presentation.
