Black Sabbath (1963)

“With three short stories defining its running time, campy Boris Karloff introductions marking the beginning and end of each piece, Black Sabbath is a work of unsettling macabre combined with ghost story playfulness.  Though it never quite meshes together as well as we’d like it to — such is a problem with movies made of vignettes — the film has long stretches and flashes of horrific brilliance that only [Mario] Bava could have helmed.”
