One of Tim Burton's all-time favorite film's, Mario Bava's Black Sunday is a haunting, unforgettable film that merges gothic horror with European art. Barbara Steele plays a young woman who is tortured and executed in a very disturbing opening scene. Before she dies, she places a curse that comes to fruition two centuries later. Gorgeously shot and wonderfully directed, Black Sunday is a must for all horror fans. The Italian version (which is still most commonly available dubbed into English) is vastly superior to the shortened American International Pictures version, which was tailored to cater to American audiences of 1960.
