Black Sunday (DVD)
Directed by Mario Bava
Directed by Mario Bava
In one of the most auspicious directorial debuts in movie history, Mario Bava bridged the gap between the gothic horror picture and the European art film with BLACK SUNDAY (aka La maschera del demonio or The Mask of Satan). Made in 1960 and now considered a cult classic, it continues to reverberate through the cinema, inspiring and influencing new generations of filmmakers.
In an absolutely mesmerizing performance, BLACK SUNDAY stars Barbara Steele as Asa Vajda, a beautiful woman tortured and executed as a witch — but not before pronouncing a curse upon those who have condemned her, a curse that is fulfilled some 200 years later.
This newly mastered HD edition is the original Italian cut of the film, complete with Roberto Nicolosi's expressive score and three minutes of footage deleted from the U.S. Release version.
DVD Extras Include:
- Mastered in HD from an archival 35mm print
- Audio commentary by Tim Lucas, author of Mario Bava: All the Colors of the Dark
- Original theatrical trailers
- Original trailers of other Bava films
- Official Selection AFI Fest
