Image from the movie Mask of Satan
An elegant throwback to an earlier mode of horror storytelling, The Mask of Satan aka Black Sunday recalls the Universal horror films of the 1930s. Director Mario Bava’s celebrated Grand Guignol style is on full display in this gothic tale of two hapless doctors who awaken a vampire-witch desperate to take her revenge on the descendents of the brother who had her put to death 200 years earlier. As the hypnotizing, diabolical Asa Vajda, Barbara Steele is by turns silkily sinister and demonically ferocious, perfectly suited to Bava’s lush yet ominous settings. (2K DCP presentation)
