Film Fanaddict News : Kino Lorber Releases The U.S. Release Version of Mario Bava's Black Sunday on Blu-ray
Posted by David Carter on 2015/2/8 10:18:28 (75132 reads)

Open in new windowKino Lorber is proud to announce the Blu-ray release of the U.S. release version of Mario Bava's cult classic BLACK SUNDAY, the groundbreaking and highly influential Italian horror film starring the great Barbara Steele as a witch condemned to death who unleashes a horrible curse upon the ancestors of those who killed her.

As a companion to the original Italian release version, which Kino Lorber previously released on Blu-ray, this U.S. release version of Mario Bava's film gives viewers the chance to see how this now-legendary genre classic was originally presented to U.S. audiences on its initial release here.

The U.S. release version of BLACK SUNDAY is set to street on Blu-ray on February 24, with a SRP of $19.95, mastered in HD from original 35mm elements and including Mario Bava theatrical trailers as bonus features.

This version of the film represents the changes made by American International Pictures, the studio that distributed the film in its initial U.S. release.

In addition to re-editing the film, AIP created a new English-dubbed track and introduced a new musical score by Les Baxter, today recognized as a master of Ultra-Lounge music, and who was instrumental in popularizing the Exotica sound.

Widely recognized as one of the true masters of the genre, for his distinctive visual style and his talent for atmospheric horror, Bava created a strong and enduring body of work that continues to entertain new audiences. Kino Lorber is proud to offer Bava's impressive directorial debut in an edition that does justice to the incredible visual power of his cinematic style.

In one of the most auspicious directorial debuts in movie history, Mario Bava bridged the gap between the gothic horror picture and the European art film with BLACK SUNDAY (aka La maschera del demonio or The Mask of Satan). Made in 1960 and now considered a cult classic, it continues to reverberate through the cinema inspiring and
influencing new generations of filmmakers.

In an absolutely mesmerizing performance, BLACK SUNDAY stars Barbara Steele as Asa Vajda, a beautiful woman tortured and executed as a witch -- but not before pronouncing a curse upon those who have condemned her, a curse that is fulfilled 200 years later.
