    1. Black Sabbath is a personal favorite. I feel the same way about losing Karloff's voice, but the Italian version is the better version of the two. The order of the sequences (Telephone, The Wurdalak, then The Drop of Water) is more effective. I have both the English and Italian versions for whichever mood I am in.
