100 favorite horror films (100 movies items)

""You have no reason to fear the dead. They sleep very soundly." Mario Bava is the godfather of the Italian horror genre and before he was using color in extraordinary and groundbreaking ways, he directed this decedent Black and white Classic. Mask of Satan (Aka Black Sunday) is a visual masterpiece, with Bava taking cues from the classic Universal Monster movies of the 30's and really running with it in way of shadow and gothic horror atmosphere. This is a movie that is absolutely dripping wit"

"Superb Italian horror by Mario Bava and his first as a director. Beautifully shot in black and white, it's dripping with Gothic atmosphere and very scary. The movie has stood the test of time extremely well with a power to still unsettle and frighten viewers. Some of the special effects are amazing for a movie of this caliber. Barbara Steele is on top form in a dual role - that of a dead evil vampire and her future ancestor. All I can say is that this is a landmark horror movie that deserves to "

Leffatykin arvostelut (108 movies items)

"(14.06.2008) 1600-luvulla Asa-niminen noita kokee Moldaviassa kurjan kohtalon rakastettunsa Javuton kanssa, ja vieläpä oman veljensä käden kautta, paholaisen kätyreitä kun ei paikkakunnalla kaivata. Asa ehtii kuitenkin langettaa karmivan kirouksen viimeisenä tekonaan, ennen kuin hänen kasvoilleen hakataan ikävä, sisäänpäin sojottavilla piikeillä varustettu Saatanan Naamio. Neitonen kuolee, haudataan kryptaan ja arkun yläpuolelle pystytetään iso risti pitämään noita kuolleena"

" So, Halloween isn't really complete with at least one dubbed Italian horror film. It was a bit cheesy and fun. I did save watching the film till the midnight hour."

"Mario Bava's masterpiece. A starting point into his work, and Italian horror in general, which is one of my favorite film genres."

"First viewing - Oct. 4th/5th I've always heard good things about this movie & have been anxious to check it out for some time. In fact, when a collection of Mario Bava's films first popped up on Netflix Instant I added most of them to my queue. Black Sunday wound up being nothing like I'd expected based on the trio of his films I've seen before, but I think for the most part the praise for it is well deserved. Basically what he's done is take influence from the 1930s Universal horror movies & "

"21/8 So here's the thing with me and my relationship with Universal and Hammer -monster movies: They're so damn romanticized. In all connections. Documentaries and books alike always praise them for their atmosphere filled with dread. But I never understood that. To me, those films have lost their edge over time. Occasionally they hit gold (Frankenstein is still a damn good story and directorial effort) but they absolutely under no circumstances manage to give me any number of chills or create "

Movie Reviews (part 4) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Classy atmospheric horror movie with phenomenal sexy Barbara Steele in the dual role as both a witch and as the damsel in distress. Revolutionary bloody for it's time with a spiked mask hammered into one of the most beautiful faces that was on cinema - and this happens after just one minute. A dead man gets burned so his face falls off. We see maggots in a cadaver and other gruesome masks but also beautiful gothic imagery and a great dungeon with hidden passageways, deadly traps and o"

"Asa Vajda Appearance Classy. The imperious anti-heroine of Mario Bava’s spectral masterpiece first appears at her own trial, dressed to kill in a slinky silk number. Unfortunately, the spiked-mask accessory which the revenge-crazed locals insist on adding does spoil the ensemble somewhat. Evil deeds Blood-drinking, corpse-reanimation, demonic possession, worshipping Satan, impersonating the aristocracy – the whole gamut, really. Scare factor 9/10 – if only for the mind-blowing scene wh"
