Editorial Reviews

A story that goes beyond the boundaries of the Supernatural to the half-world of the living dead. Where a woman's soul inhabits a fly's body, where Vengeance is only a voice and where vampires suck only the blood of those they love dearest. Not Since 'FRANKENSTEIN' Have You Seen Such Horror!

Format: VHS Tape
Black Sabbath is one of those movies that made a horrifyingly-indelible impression on me when I first saw it. In "The Drop of Water", I can still see the contorted visage of the dead spiritualist as she fixes her malevolent stare on the woman who has robbed her in death. "The Telephone" was the weakest of the trio. But the third segment--The Wurdalak--gave me insomnia for days. As a lover of the vampire genre, I was struck by the twist in the old legend: a Wurdalak returns from the dead to attack those whom he loved best on earth. Boris Karloff plays the title character, a paterfamilias who sets out to destroy a local bandit-turned-Wurdalak. If he has not returned in exactly three days, the family will know that he has been victimized, and must be destroyed. Of course, he returns just after the three day mark. The sheer horror comes from the fact that the family knows the truth, but can't admit it. The scene of Karloff cuddling and stroking his young grandson is enough to make you want to call Child Protective Services! Really good stuff, and a clarion call to those who insist that one needs massive special effects or blatan, on-screen gore to succeed. Kudos!

Buyers be forewarned. Unlike the "also from" Anchor Bay trailers showing the American AIP version of "Black Sabbath", what is on the disc is NOT that version. Instead this is the European Italian language version with subtitles and even Karloff's voice is dubbed in Italian. Their advertising is very misleading for the unaware.

Due to some sort of contractual differences with AIP, this is all that is currently available to the public.

You know I have never seen a DVD that is more ambiguous in its description and based on Amazon's reviews I am not alone. I purchased this DVD fully thinking I was getting the U.S. version and not the Italian version that I already own. The movie is in Italian with subtitles and a commentary track. For those of you who think I am a pan and scan knucklehead who does not appreciate films in their true uncut version you are wrong- the American Version is actually a different cut with alternate footage. Why not release both versions on one disc. If you are a Bava fan check it out but if you own the Image DVD you do not need to purchase this disc.

27 of 28 people found the following review helpful By Greg Blu Ray HD on May 26, 2013
Format: Blu-ray
I ordered the Arrow Blu Ray version of Black Sabbath from Amazon uk. It has both the US Version in English AND the Italian version with English Subtitles. Watching the English US Version, in High Def was a pleasure I never thought I'd see. To make this even better, there are Special Features; one of them A Tale of Two Versions, that shows the differences with the US and Italian version. It has clips from both comparing the various changes. The story lines are a little different and so are some of the camera angles. However, be warned....this is a Region 2 PAL Blu Ray. It won't play on a US Blu Ray Player (Region 1). I own a multi-region Blu Ray player (you can find some on ebay). One of the reasons I purchased one was to own this title. So, until whatever legal issues are sorted out in the US, this is the only way you will have the English US version. As an additional bonus, Arrow includes the Standard DVD of these movies as well. If you are a fan of this movie, order it from Amazon UK, and get a multi-region player. You won't be disappointed.

My headline is what watching this movie will be like for you with this shoddy Bluray release - SUBTITLED!! Kino Lorber once again has gone on-the-cheap with another Bava release. Their last offering was "Black Sunday" which like this one DOES NOT include the American Version of the Film!! The version we all grew up on playing on TV and before that at the drive-in was a recut, rescored, and most importantly ENGLISH version which included Boris Karloff's real voice. This version will ONLY feature the Italian Version of the movie WITHOUT Karloff's inimitable intonation AND SUBTITLES (unless you speak Italian). Now, admittedly the Italian Version is the stronger of the two - the 3 stories appear in a different order and slightly different cuts than they do in the American Version, which softens the horror and dumbs things down a little for the US Market. But for the Bluray release BOTH versions should most definitely have been included. A very small label from the UK recently released this title with BOTH versions as well as a SLEW of mouth-watering extras that are also not present in this lame release! Kino Lorber is a bigger label with more funding at their fingertips but has just decided to sloppily slap the same Italian version released on DVD a decade ago onto a Bluray and reel in the cash with the least amount of effort. Say NO to these slapdash releases and demand that Kino Lorber treat these iconic classics with the care and respect they deserve!

Format: DVD
Mario Bava's BLACK SABBATH (original Italian title--THE THREE FACES OF FEAR) is easily one of my favorite DVD releases this year, both in terms of the new transfer and the film itself.
Like Bava's earlier BLACK SUNDAY, this film was re-edited by AIP for its American release, and it is that version which we've always seen in the US. The original Italian version plays the episodes in a different order: "The Telephone," "The Wurdalak" and "The Drop of Water." The lesbian content of "The Telephone" was of course toned down for American audiences. It also has a prologue and epilogue which are different from those shot for the American release. You may find that the comic epilogue doesn't fit with the rest of the picture, but I enjoyed its self-deprecating humor. The original score by Roberto Nicolosi supports the mood of the film better than Les Baxter's AIP score and it subtly ties the three episodes together through recurring thematic material. If you've only seen this film in the AIP version, you really owe it to yourself to see the original Italian version-there IS a difference.
The letterboxed DVD transfer looks beautiful. The print is worn in places, but the colors are vivid and the rich details of the set design come through. Having known the film only from a cropped VHS transfer, watching the DVD was like seeing a new film altogether. Indeed, Bava's masterful use of lighting, color and camera movement, his eye for dramatic detail, only confirms what a brilliant director he was. From a purely stylistic standpoint, this is one of the great horror films. Tim Lucas, as usual, provides informative liner notes.
