Black Sabbath

Black Sabbath

Directed by Mario Bava

Horror icon Boris Karloff hosts and stars in Mario Bava's classic horror anthology. Bava's only foray into short-form scares features three chilling tales rendered in his trademark visual lushness: "The Telephone", about a woman who's menaced by threatening calls; "The Wurdalak", starring Karloff as a patriarch whose family realizes he's been bitten by a vampire; and "The Drop Of Water", about a woman who steals a ring from a body, then gets haunted by the owner. Ozzy Osbourne's iconic hard rock band Black Sabbath famously took the film's title as it's name. (In Italian with English Subtitles) Contains sexual scenes, violence and gore.

The atmosphere, the lighting, the cinematography, the camera placement, the use of light and shadow, the soundtrack, the Karloff! Great classic, extremely fun watch.

I'd give the middle story (the one with Karloff) four or five skulls, but I found the others downright tedious.
