What a quality film!!! Three stories The Telephone, Wurdalak and Drop of Water. Arrow here present a glorious hd master of two versions of the film, The Italian version with English subs and the American International Pictures dubbed release. The stories run in different order depending on which version of the film you watch, with different introductions by Karloff, different editing, different scores (as usual Les Baxter takes the helm on the AIP release), also with the story "The Telephone" the versions differ in the sense that the AIP version offers a more supernatural take as opposed to the more giallo flavour of the Italian version. There are also different colour gradings on each of the versions which were undertaken by the studios themselves. I cant recommend this film (and edition) enough. The extras here are good also, although not a comprehensive list are split over 3 discs which is a little annoying but I understand why that is done. The best of these imo is the side by side comparison of the two versions of the film. Its easy to see what the differences are and believe me there are plenty. The "Telephone" and "Drop of Water" work very well as short stories, but its "the Wurdalak" a Russian vampire tale by Tolstoy which would have deserved to have been a film to itself. I loved it. Arrow presents the bd/hd with an extremely good hd master, the Italian version slightly better in terms of clean up as the AIP has a few specks and scratches occasionally. Reversible sleeve art too. Overall another excellent release by Arrow.

Arrow are doing a magnificent job of restoring old movies up to hi def picture & sound.Especially on blu-ray which most are.Black Sabbath is in that category.The one i bought is the 3 disc SE.containing the film in SD on DVD & bonus disc & booklet.The main feature in 1080p HD on Blu-ray.Sound is 2.0 Mono PCM. Any good Home Theatre should decode that to acceptable surround sound. Although originally made in foreign language,there is a dubbed english speaking option. The film contains 3 short stories. Which are all very good. Highly recommended.

Black Sabbath is a stunning horror anthology from Mario Bava (Black Sunday).

Boris Karloff presents three stories of the macabre which are all shot in luscious colour with beautiful set and costume design.
'Telephone' is a tense giallo thriller where a call girl is hounded by threatening calls from her ex pimp. This is a scary economic thriller with a good twist.
'Wuldavak' is an excellent twist on the vampire genre with Karloff at his most menacing. The photography is beautiful and the horror is really melodramatic in this one. It's lovely.
'Drop of Water' is about a nurse who tries to steal the ring off a dead witch's finger. This is scary and nicely builds to a shocking climax.

Arrow's release has 3 discs: 1 blu-ray and 2 DVDs.

On the blu-ray: Italian and rare American versions of the film both in 1080 HD. They look brilliant, much better than ever before. LPCM mono, optional English subtitles. Audio commentary by Tim Lucas and half hour featurette on the differences between the two films.

On the DVDs: all of the above plus interview with co star Mark Damon, trailers and introduction by Alan Jones.

Also includes double sided cover and collector booklet with archive interviews.

A superb purchase for any horror fan.

Blu-ray is region B. DVDs are region 2.

This is my first Mario Bava film and I have to say it's just brilliant. Included are the American International version and the Italian version. The great thing is that because of sensor edits the two versions are quite different and both worth a watch. The picture quality was fantastic for both, as was the sound. My favourite of the three pieces was The Wardulak with Boris Karloff, it was really quite scary near the end. Most people talk about the final film The Drop Of Water, and I can see why as late at night this really got to me. Anyway, a great film, well remastered by Arrow. A worthy film for you horror collection.

Three good short films of murder, mystery, suspense with English subtitles. Boris Karloff wicked and cruel. Actors and actresses, in three separate films of old and modern times.
