This was the one I always skipped in Black Sabbath, but since coming to DVD a few years back,The Telephone is slowly becoming my fave!..

I love this segment too...it's been a while since I watched the English language version, but I don't remember it having the lesbian subtext of the Italian version.

Michelle Mercier certainly leaves a strong impression though.

Michelle Mercier certainly helps matters..and its all very sensuous..But in its short time ,it builds real suspense and those Bava CoLoRs are no less dazzling..I haven't seen the English version in so long I honestly can't compare which is the best..I'm used to the Italian movie tho...even Karloff! :o))
