this film club choice is awesome

Hmm, what a bold statement to make in my post title, no? NO! Because for the next round of Film Club joy, I want to watch Black Sabbath (or, as the Eye-talians call it, I tre volti della paura). Those of you who have seen it know that it is indeed an awesome movie. Those of you who will be seeing it for the first time- well, you're in for a treat.

This 1963 anthology film by Mario Bava stars Boris Karloff. That is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.

Netflixers, it's available so get ta queuein'! I'm so ready!

The film: Black Sabbath
The dude date (typo that stays): Monday, January 25...2010! So futuristic.

Black Sabbath: The Karen Carpenter Story.

All I remember about "Black Sabbath" is that it was very good, very Bava-esque, and made a great companion piece to "Black Sunday". (It was Theme Night.)

I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks anything 2010 sounds futuristic.

I've been meaning to review this for ages, so this is serendipitous to say the least...but I suppose one can't use "serendipitous" and "to say the least" effectively in the same sentence. Anyway, yay!

Mario Bava? Boris Karloff? Anthology film? Sign me up!

Personally, I prefer Dio over Ozzy.

Oh, my! What a fine choice. I've only ever seen the American edit of this and have been looking for an excuse to see it in its original form.

The dead lady in the bed scared me when I was a child, and it still creeps me out today. Very, very eerie stuff.

Also, there are lots of inexpensive copies available from Amazon! This is a film that horror fans should own.

Anyone else wonder why Helena Bonham Carter is laying in that bed, looking all hungry?

I am all over this.

I just received my Bava Box Set #1, and I'm so pleased to confirm that it includes the "original uncut International version" in Italian with English subtitles. The American version (by AIP, or American International Pictures) of Black Sabbath can currently be viewed for free on HULU.

HULU has Black Sunday, as well. (Now wouldn't you have bet anything those were two alternate titles for the same movie?!)
