Black Sunday

Black Sunday

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.

As the official directorial debut for Mario Bava it is a strong one. It's a good if slow Supernatural Gothic Horror more about atmosphere than full on frights. The cinematography is splendid as to be expected from a Bava film
