When I found out this film influenced one of my favorite bands to take the films title as it’s name, i had to watch it, and it did not disappoint.
Black Sabbath is a film anthology created by the famous Italian horror director, Mario Bava.
It consists of three tales; “The telephone”, “The Wurdalak”, and “The Drop Of Water”.
Each story has a plot vastly different from one another; from a thriller to a creature feature and then to a haunting tale. They have their own unique sense of suspense and tension, and they all manage run a good pace and know when best to conclude.
The practical effects were impressive for its time, to the point where one sequence in “The Drop Of Water” creeped me out, and I don’t spook easily.
I can see why this film makes the list of an iconic horror classic. If you’re a die hard horror fan, definitely check this one out.
