Directed by Mario Bava

svg-play Trailer

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.

By today’s standards it’s a little slow, and hard to follow. But put into context it’s an excellent spooky, and atmospheric film. Great to watch Getting toasted with friends. Or getting spooky and hot/heavy with your partner. Only downside is the pro witch burning aspect. A wonderful movie for background ambiance. What it lacks in our modern, in your face horror vibes; it makes up for in a truly classic, spooky, atmosphere, that one can only get from those teenage late nights gathered around the screen with $5 pizzas and sandwich baggy dubscaks
