BLACK SUNDAY. Martyn Conterio. Auteur Publishing, Leighton Buzzard, 2014. Devil's Advocates. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Columbia University Press, New York. 110 pp. with 20 ills. ISBN 9781906733834 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Despite its reputation as one of the greatest horror films, there is surprisingly little literature dedicated to Mario Bava's Black Sunday (1960), and this study is the first single volume dedicated to the work. Martyn Conterio positions the film as one of the first sound Italian horror films and describes how its success kickstarted the Italian horror boom. He considers the film's particular perspective on the gothic, which it pioneered, and its innovative approach to horror tropes such as the vampire and the witch. He also considers how the casting of British "Scream Queen" Barbara Steele was crucial to the work's success.
