First viewing/Netflix rental
This is OK horror, stylishly presented by Mario Bava.
There are a trio of stories here, all introduced by Boris Karloff. “The Telephone” concerns a call-girl whose calls turn threatening. Are they from a man she helped put in jail? In “The Wurdulak”, the head of a large family (Boris Karloff) may have been transformed into a vampire. In “The Drop of Water” a corpse returns to take revenge on a woman who stole a ring from its dead finger.
This didn’t grab me in any way but is nice to look at thanks to the talented Bava.
I watched a sub-titled version. There’s an interesting commentary on the DVD.
