Black Sabbath (1963)

Arrow Blu-Ray. A three story anthology from Italian maestro Mario Bava.

Superb direction, editing and photography. An absolutely stunning use of colour that would influence Dario Argento's films. Boris Karlof hamming it up. What more could you want from a Sunday evening movie?

If you get the chance make sure you watch the "Twice the Fear" comparison between the Italian and US versions of the film. Very interesting.

Amendment; "The Telephone" makes an interesting giallo short.
