It is comprised of three very different tales: The Telephone, based on a story by F. Snyder, The Drop of Water, based on a story by Anton Chekov, and The Wurdalak, based on a 19th century Russian story by Ivan Tolstoy.
There are two different introductions by Karloff one for Black Sabbath, the English-language version of the film which was distributed by American International Pictures, and one for I tre volti della paura, the Italian-language version of the film.
Also worth pointing out is that the three tales appear in different order on each version, as well as the fact that the Italian version of the film is slightly longer and more graphic.
