    Description

    Black Sunday (Unidis, 1960). Folded, Very Fine-. Italian 2 - Fogli (39.5" X 55") Giuliano Nistri Artwork.
    Generally considered to be the foremost example of Italian Gothic horror, this darkly atmospheric black and white chiller put director Mario Bava on the international map and made the bewitching Barbara Steele a star. Steele plays Princess Asa, a high priestess of Satan who is gruesomely executed in 1600s Moldavia by having a spiked mask hammered into her face. Before she dies, Asa vows revenge on the family who killed her and returns from the grave two centuries later to keep her promise. Indications of handling found in this poster include slight fold wear and separations, soft creases, pinholes, and some minor tears and chips. Also seen is a faint scuff through the title and light toning at the edges. Chilling artwork by Giuliano Nistri.


    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
