Black Sunday was such a huge hit that a follow-up was swiftly demanded, and horror maestro Mario Bava duly devised this three-part horror anthology blending modern and period stories.
In the giallo-style 'The Telephone', a woman is terrorized by her former pimp after his escape from prison, and tries to escape him with the help of her lesbian lover, who has a dark secret of her own. In the Victorian-era 'The Drop of Water', a nurse steals a ring from the corpse of a dead spiritualist, which naturally tries to get it back. But it's the 19th-century Russian story 'The Wurdalak' that comes closest to Bava's earlier classic, with the great Boris Karloff as a much-loved paterfamilias who might not be entirely what he seems.
Bava's direction is as stylish as ever, and Black Sabbath is almost a compendium of his favourite themes.

“There's scarcely a scene in this film that doesn't deserve to be a poster” – EyeforFilm
“the best showcase yet for his uniquely visual cinematic talent” – DVD Savant
