Bava set the standard for the Italian horror genre with the classic BLACK SUNDAY (1960), a film that defined the gothic thriller. Later HATCHET FOR THE HONEYMOON (1969) established the template for the "stalk’n’slash" genre.
His baroque visual style continues to educate, impress and heavily influence horror filmmakers to this day. His two most famous "pupils" are Dario Argento (SUSPIRIA) and Tim Burton (SLEEPY HOLLOW).
This collection contains four signature titles from Bava. They are presented for the first time in Australia UNCUT and in pristine new WIDESCREEN transfers.
BLACK SUNDAY (1960)
Once every 100 years the undead demons of hell terrorize the world in an orgy of stark horror!
Stars cult horror actress BARBARA STEELE.
BLACK SABBATH (1963)
Horror legend BORIS KARLOFF stars in this story that goes beyond the boundaries of the supernatural to the half-world of the living dead. BLACK SABBATH is the most gruesome day in the calendar of the undead!
HATCHET FOR THE HONEYMOON (1969)
In this classic psychological horror movie, Bava reworks the "Psycho" plot – a young man kills to erase the childhood trauma of having witnessed his mother’s murder.
Argento's last film stars Argento regular Daria Nicolodia as a young woman conducting a beyond-the-grave sado-masochistic relationship with her dead husband.
