"Vintage Bava."
‑ , Time Out
"Only one episode [of this anthology] reaches the critical mass that explodes into the kind of absolute terror that will satisfy skeptic and fan alike, but that is more than enough to make this essential viewing."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"I'm not easily scared, but this one gave me chills."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Later Karloff features him in name only"
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Boris Karloff serves as the cheerful host for this anthology flick, which progresses in story terms from good to better to best."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"An exemplar of expressionistic visual storytelling."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"... chilling horror story anthology."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Uneven, but the 'Drop of Water' sequence is about the creepiest thing ever filmed"

‑ Noel Murray, The Dissolve
"...a trilogy of sporadically chilling yet ultimately ineffective horror tales..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A Drop of Water is definitely the most atmospheric and creepy of the three tales."
