This anthology features three chilling horror stories. "Il Telefono" is credited to Guy de Maupassant, although he never wrote such a story, and concerns a woman (Michele Mercier) receiving telephone calls from beyond the grave. "Wurdulak", by Alexei Tolstoi, stars Boris Karloff as an aging vampire who can only feed on those he loves. Co-starring Mark Damon and Susy Andersen, it is clearly the best story of the three. The final tale, "La Goccia d'Acqua," is falsely credited to Anton Chekhov. It

Boris Karloff serves as the cheerful host for this anthology flick, which progresses in story terms from good to better to best.
Even with Boris Karloff providing a lighthearted introduction and sign-off, Black Sabbath is fraught with fatalism.
Only one episode [of this anthology] reaches the critical mass that explodes into the kind of absolute terror that will satisfy skeptic and fan alike, but that is more than enough to make this essential viewing.
...a trilogy of sporadically chilling yet ultimately ineffective horror tales...
A Drop of Water is definitely the most atmospheric and creepy of the three tales.
Uneven, but the 'Drop of Water' sequence is about the creepiest thing ever filmed
