Director: Mario Bava
A woman and her lover are executed for witchcraft, and before she dies she lays a curse on the family of her killers. 200 years later, she comes back for her revenge as promised.
The movie stars Barbara Steele as Katia and Asia, John Richardson as Andre, and Andrea Checchi as Thomas.
"Black Sunday" is a beautifully filmed Italian gothic horror movie with a great atmosphere and score to add to the intensity. While it runs dry at times, scenes like the ending make it a very watchable film. The blood and violence were quite brutal for the time, foreshadowing how unrelenting the Italians of the genre have been since. I really liked Barbara Steele in the movie(as I usually do), because she can go from being calm to scary in the blink of an eye.
"Black Sunday" is an important film of horror history, and it is definitely worth a watch for its style and notability. While it's not one of my all time favorites, it is definitely recommendable.
