This underrated film is among Bava's best. And I'm sorry, but I've seen both the AIP version (the one dubbed in English) and this version (dubbed in Italian, with subtitles).

Please Kanopy, get the version with English speakers speaking English. I can read the lips and see they're speaking English. What's up with having an Italian overdubbed version of an English speaking film that is THEN subtitled? It's simply absurd.

BLACK SUNDAY gets Mario Bava all the attention, and while it's a masterpiece in visuals, BLACK SABBATH is a masterpiece in actual horror. "A Drop of Water", the third story in this anthology feature, is one of the scariest things ever committed to film. A brilliant work for fans of horror.

One of my favorite horror movies of all time! I prefer the Italian subtitled version to the AIP version. The sequence of the stories is better and it's not edited down.

This is a wonderfully realized horror film that is a great deal of fun to watch. It is one of Mario Bava's best creations and filled with frightening and memorable images.
