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.

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

A really good anthology. The subtitles were fine by me. I would say the third story is the best as it the best showing of director Mario Bava's style, but also the best with it's pacing. I will say the second one with Boris Karloff was the weakest in my mind as it just on far too long. The first actually felt like the most Bava as it's a Giallo-styled story and is kind of rushed, but still good. Definitely worth a watch.

Great movie, classic suspense , horror . Those people that complaint about subtitles well, you don’t know what you are missing , but we don’t really care . Why don’t you go to the corner of your street and see if it’s raining while I enjoy other great subtitled movie.
