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.

What a classic. Boris Karloff creates such interesting characters. I enjoy the format that this movie uses, like a monthly magazine consisting of short stories, only these have Boris Karloff. The way the stories are approached allows the stories to be set apart from the rest of the Hollywood b-horror lineups. Not that they're a bad thing.
Classic schlock... I loved every minute of it. The middle tale, with Karloff, was the best of the bunch.
The first segment doesn't really work, but the second and third segments are amazing. Boris Karloff is so much fun to watch, and the epilogue is hilarious!
very entertaining...the last story reminded me a little of poe's tall tail heart
