Directed by Mario Bava
A vengeful witch returns to possess her descendant in Mario Bava's most famous film, which remains beloved by critics, horror historians, and directors like Tim Burton and Francis Ford Coppola (SLEEPY HOLLOW and BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA both feature homages). Bava's major innovation was favoring thrilling visuals and European eroticism (still radical for 1960) over story. Even today, the film is regularly cited as one of the greatest horror movies of all time and scream queen Barbara Steele is still known as one of the most beautiful bad girls in horror history.

Cast: Barbara Steele, John Richardson, Ivo Garrani
Masterpiece of gothic horror that stands the test of time. Love this damn movie!
Excellent movie worth watching
To my knowledge, this was the first Bava film that I have seen. Amazing
the fight scene with the bat rivals when Obi Wan fought Vader. great film.
Barbara Steele is one of the great horror actresses and this is a Bava classic. If you enjoy classic horror give it a chance.
