Black Sabbath (1963) Mario Bava, Italy- 5/10-  three horror stories are narrated by Boris Karloff. A prostitute stalked by the ghost of a former lover, a ring haunted by its owner and my favorite story - the elderly vampire who seeks to get revenge on his family. This Bava film is a fun way to spend a couple hours. A fun fact too is that the band got their name from this film.
