Black Sunday

Directed by Mario Bava
With Barbara Steele, John Richardson, Andrea Checchi
1960, 87min, 35mm 

 

“A rich draught of vampire's blood. With it's crypts and cobwebs and eerie old castles set in batty, steamy forests, it's sumptuous enough to have acquired a considerable reputation.”
The New Yorker

Bava commenced his career-long exploration of perverse sexuality in this delirious and flamboyantly romantic adaptation of a ghostly folk tale by Gogol. Widely considered his best film, it also stars a wickedly sensual Barbara Steele as a witch who’s killed and returns from the crypt two centuries later to wreak revenge—launching her career as the ultimate horror actress.

 
The Witch’s Cradle

Directed by Maya Deren
With Marcel Duchamp, Parjorita Matta
1944, 12min, 16mm 

 

Avant-garde visionary Maya Deren directed Marcel Duchamp in this unfinished surrealist riot of occult symbols and dark rituals.
