(2) "I Wurdulak" - Vladimire d'Urfe, a young man, is riding a horse at night and finds a man with a knife in his back. He withdraws the dagger from the man and finds a house close to the place where he found the body. There, he meets a family composed of two brothers, one sister, one sister-in-law and one nephew, and he falls in love at first sight with the beautiful Sdenka. He realizes that the dead man was a criminal, probably killed by the head of the family Gorca, and he is advised to leave that place, before Gorca arrives back at midnight. The family informs him that there is a chance that Gorca might have been transformed in a Wurdulak, a kind of vampire who drains blood from the living persons. A few seconds after midnight, Gorca comes back home, and the afraid family does not know whether he was transformed or not. The family discovers later what happened in a tragic way.

- Mary: [to Rosy] You have no reason to be afraid.
- Boris Karloff came onto the production because he was under contract with American International Pictures who were interested in doing another picture with Mario Bava.
The films title was a homage to 'Black Sunday' the previous film that Mario Bava had made for AIP. The success of that picture made the distributors select a title that was similar to that of the earlier Bava hit.
The segment 'The Telephone' was the first Italian thriller to be shot in color.
Director Mario Bava's father, Eugenio Bava, created and sculpted the head for the ghost in 'The Drop of Water' as well as the served head for the segment 'The Wurdalak.'
There were additional scenes filmed with Boris Karloff introducing the segments, however AIP decided they were unnecessary and cut them from the film. Karloff would later say these introductions were some of the most fun he'd ever had on a film set.
