Discussion following BLACK SUNDAY with actress Barbara Steele (schedule permitting)

International Version
BLACK SUNDAY (1960)
LA MASCHERA DEL DEMONIO
1960, 87 min, Italy, Dir: Mario Bava
Mario Bava’s first full film as a director stars Barbara Steele in a double role as a deathless witch and her own virginal descendant. With John Richardson and Ivo Garrani. “Still the No. 1 film of the Italian Horror renaissance, startlingly original and genuinely creepy.” — Glenn Erickson, DVD Savant.

LISA AND THE DEVIL
LISA E IL DIAVOLO
1972, Kino Lorber, 95 min, Italy/West Germany/Spain, Dir: Mario Bava
First released in the USA in an alternate edit with some different footage as THE HOUSE OF EXORCISM (to phenomenal success), this is one of Bava’s masterworks. Tourist Elke Sommer is lured by devil Telly Savalas into a household of white lilies and rotting corpses. Caught in a time warp of decadent, aristocratic decay and horrifying, half-remembered memories of a fatal amour fou, Sommer tries desperately to find her way out of the nightmare. But there may be no escape. Elegiac and dreamlike, with Bava’s own poetic brand of morbid, melancholic lyricism. “Beautifully filmed and exquisitely scored by Carlo Savina … as much a dreamy art film as it is a European horror opus. Many of the images rank among Bava's best … with a strange and haunting finale that offers several levels of interpretation.” – Mondo-Digital.com; “…a hauntingly beautiful poem about decay and death.” — Phil Hardy, Overlook Film Encyclopedia of Horror.
