Ramon Obon directed this Mexican Gothic horror anthology based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe. "Panico" concerns a man (Joaquin Cordero) who schemes with his mistress to frighten his wife into a heart attack. Ariadna Welter is the terrorized spouse, who later turns the tables on her tormentors. "Miedo Supremo" deals with a doctor (Jorge Martinez de Hoyos) who gets accidentally locked in a cemetery crypt with an insane woman who has been buried alive. Obon, best known for writing the screenplays of such Mexican horror standards as El Vampiro and Misterios de Ultratumba, produces some nice atmospherics and manages to avoid silliness in favor of genuine mood.
