Default Black Sunday - Specs Thread

Black Sunday (Arrow Video) Dual Format Edition



STARE INTO THESE EYES... discover deep within them the unspeakable terrifying secret of BLACK SUNDAY... it will paralyze you with fright!


Legendary Scream Queen Barbara Steele (Shivers, Caged Heat) stars in this classic slice of gothic terror from the father of fantastic Italian cinema Mario Bava (Lisa & the Devil).


A beautiful witch is sentenced to death for her evil deeds by her own brother, condemned to die by having a metal mask hammered onto her face before being burnt at the stake. As she passes, she puts a terrible curse on all her future descendants as the spikes of the death mask pierce her flesh... But when two unwitting travellers discover her final resting place and worse, drip blood on her resting corpse, they unleash her once again in all her stunningly beautiful, terrifying glory....


Banned in the UK on its release, Black Sunday is a groundbreaking film that opened the door for Spaghetti horror in all its gory glory.

Back after it was announced, Arrow stated on FB they still hadn't looked at the sources being supplied. Has this changed at all? I'm curious how the AIP version is being handled - whether from a print or a reconstruction from the Int'l version.

According to Arrow on Facebook, it will be in SD because no HD master is available, otherwise it would've had a separate release

So is this version dual format as well?

Great film. One of Bava's best. Good to see Arrow handling it properly.

Apparently Barbara doesn't know anything about being interviewed by Arrow for this. Is this extra still "planned?"

Its probably the interview done for the US release but was never included on the disc (for some weird reason) I bet Arrow thought 'your loss' and snagged the rights immediately. No-one from arrow will have done the interview themselves. (Theres some older posts on redemptions facebook page about it)

The limited editions of this and lisa are the last two major releases I will be buying until I have a budget sorted or found a new job. I was hesitant about ordering given the recent debacle (where my stuff got shipped to the wrong address, still no apology btw) but I want the slipcase to look right with all my other stuff and if I havent found a job by the time their released it'll be something nice for me coming through the post.

As for transfer, its always a risky proposition with arrow. For every Demons 1+2, Zombie flesh-eaters (yes even with the missing 6 seconds) maniac cop ect, we get tenebrae or House by the cemetary with italian lab screw ups. I also own the KINO discs and if this looks anything like their releases (and I presume they will use the same source material) then it should look a treat.

Also a quote from tim lucas via facebook...


"As for BLACK SUNDAY, Arrow has access to the original negative, which was not available when Kino was doing their release; it will also contain the AIP version of the film for the first time on DVD or Blu-ray, which has only just become available to the rights holder."


Sounding better and better. The kino black sunday looked amazing, hopefully this will look even better!
