Can you believe this is the 4th year of 31 Days of Halloween? This year I am taking the reins with some help from Susan Harris. Things might look a little different but I guarantee one thing - Lots of "different" Halloween options!
Day 22 - Black Sunday (1960)
Melanie Says -
I'm swapping in this one that we just watched from Greg's list as the other one I had isn't available anywhere so that was annoying.
I have to say I can't believe this was a 1960s movie! Although it's black and white and hits all the cheesy notes you would want in a classic, the story is unusual (it talks in the description about a witch - but she is a witch/vampire), that comes back to curse her family (which seemed strange until you find out her brother was the one that had her killed in the first place).
I would literally sit this up there with any of the black and white classics and I have to say, as I said to Greg on more than one occasion - her eyeliner was fabulous. I mean this look was probably achieved
with some substance that is now banned because it's likely to kill you - but still - you can't argue with the result.
If you like classics, you should check this out. I can't believe I never heard of it before!
**Note to add - Apparently, this was released originally in Italian with this name and then dubbed for an English version released as "The Mask of Satan". The version we watched on Plex was labelled as Black Sunday and I didn't notice it was dubbed - just thought the sound was off at times. Greg says it is quite obviously dubbed but doesn't take away from the movie.**
