Its one of those slightly corny ones whre a bunch of strangers meet, and some old guy tells each one in turn how they're going to meet their doom, so it's like 5 mini-movies in one.

there's a few films tht follow this format, but the title I need is the one where one of the sub-stories involved a guy looking after a bunch of blind people and being nasty to them, so they eventually get revenge on him by constructing a maze with razors and guard dogs in it, so he can't escape.

this might be very obvious to someone, but I cant find any info...

This is a tricky one. There's a horror author who had a couple of films based on a bunch of short stories of his, I'm struggling to remember but...

First thing that popped into my mind is "Tales That Witness Madness" (horrible title that sounds wrong coming out of your mouth) but it's not that.

It's not "Torture Garden" either, although it sounds very similar to what you're after. Nor is it "Dr. Terror's House of Horrors"...or "The House That Dripped Blood"...damn, there's a lot of these. "From Beyond the Grave"...found it!!

"Tales from the Crypt"

It was on British TV the other day so if I'd known I'd have done you a copy.

Thanks for that, and good luck finding it. Problem will be all the other "Tales from the Crypt" titles out there.

It definitly has been released ,as I have a VCR Tape of it.It  was released by 20th Century Fox Selections in 1993.Just look for the 1972 version with Peter Cushing as a zombie and a skull faced biker on the box.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
