You can usually rely on those Frightfest guys to bring a classic back to the big screen at their shindigs, and boy have they picked a doozy for their Glasgow event.

For screening on the Saturday morning will be iconic director Mario Bava’s trilogy of terror, Black Sabbath.

An anthology flick that truly works, the movie stars Boris Karloff as both host and player, along with the likes of Mark Damon and Michele Mercier.

Also known as The Three Faces Of Fear, the trio of stories centre on a woman terrorised by threatening phone calls, a family battling to destroy a line of vampires and a theft from a corpse that has deadly consequences.

Originally released in 1963, the great news for fright fans is that this will be a screening of a brand spanking new restored version, shown for the first time in English.

If you fancy checking out a true horror master at work, Bava’s vision screens on Saturday, February 23.
