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 wish there were an English audio version without the cuts and changes that were made for the US release. Without his voice, we're only getting half of Karloff's performance. Still a good anthology, but it def could have been better.

Well that was a tad different from the AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL version i grew up watching through the decades yet still flowing with the menacing nightmarish resonating terror of Bava, Karloff and the rest of the magnificent cast. Thanks to SHUDDER for bringing such classics into the timeless depths of the internet.
