Mario Bava! MARIO BAVA! Yes, the Italian master of horror, who really brought some real gore to the genre, gets his due at the Trylon this month. We’re launching our new series Mario Bava: Pioneer of Italian Horror tonight (and yesterday), with Black Sunday, one of the creepiest vampire flicks ever made.
Turns out a vampire lady (Barbara Steele) is burned to death at the hand of her brother. But before she goes up in flames, she puts a curse on her bro’s descendants–200 years later, all hell breaks loose!
For those of you for whom Halloween is a month-long affair, come check out Black Sunday, and the whole pack of Mario Bava splatter masterpieces!
Black Sunday screens tonight at 7:00 and 9:00. Buy tickets here!
