Dare you strare into the eyes and discover deep within them the unspeakable terrifying secret of.... Black Sunday
BLACK SUNDAY - the one day in every century when satan is allowed to walk freely on earth. As the spiked mask of the demon is hammered onto the face of the evil Princess Asa, she curses the House of Vadja. Two centeries later her rotting corpse is still craving the drop of blood that will revive her demented hatred. Then two doctors stumble on her tomb and it isn't long before the night echoes with chilling invitation - "Come to me, kiss me, you will die but you will bliss beyond the reach of mortals..." Based on Nikolai Gogol's short story, "The Vigg", BLACK SUNDAY is one of the most universally acclaimed horror films of all time. With BLACK SUNDAY, Italian director Mario Bava claimed the title of "Master of Terror" and Barbara Steele became the First Lady of Horror.
