Black Sabbath speaks to the vastness of Bava’s abilities in the realms of the terrifying and the supernatural.
There's a little bit of everything in Bava's best-known film, the three-part anthology Black Sabbath.
Back when anthology TV shows such as The Twilight Zone and Thriller were in their heyday, the movies, too, entertained a spate of horror/supernatural multistory features that fans still regard with affection. Director Mario Bava, whose earlier single-story satanic yarn Black Sunday picked up a wide following, turned Sabbath into one of the best. [11 Aug 2000, 8E]
Even with Boris Karloff providing a lighthearted introduction and sign-off, Black Sabbath is fraught with fatalism.
