Hello Pulp Friends

Meanwhile enjoy one of the scariest movies of this horror marathon: the Italian LA MASCHERA DEL DEMONIO! :)

La Maschera del Demonio
Italy, 1960
directed by Mario Bava
starring: Barbara Steele, John Richardson, Ivo Garrani

In the 16th Century, in Moldavia, a princess is killed for practicing witchcraft and buried in the family tomb. After two centuries, two Russian doctors who are travelling by bring her casually back to life. The witch tries immediately to possess the body of her descendant.
This is Bava’s first movie as director.

Beautiful rendition of the beautiful Barbara Steele.

I'm dying to see what your October 31st piece will be if all these were preludes!

BTW, the film is better-known (in a somewhat edited form) as Black Sunday. See the uncut version, if possible!
