THE FILMS

Hatchet For The Honeymoon (Redemption) (1970)

614r0j5qLnL._SL160_.jpg

Seven years after innovating the grisly Italian genre known as giallo, Mario Bava returned to the form to create one of its deliriously frightening examples: Hatchet for the Honeymoon (Il rosso segno della follia ).

Stephen Forsyth stars as John Harrington, the head of an affluent fashion house, who harbors an uncontrollable bloodlust for women in bridal veils. Only by murdering a succession of them, each in a grisly manner, can he delve deeper into his subconscious and bring to light the primal scene that spawned his very specific homicidal fetish. With its director doubling as cinema- tographer, Hatchet is one of Bava's most visually sumptuous films.

Special Features:
1. Mastered in HD from the 35mm negative
2. Audio commentary by Tim Lucas, author of
3. Mario Bava: All the Colors of the Dark
4. Original theatrical trailers from this other Bava films
Italy 1970 Color 88 Min. 1.78:1 1920 x 1080p 2.0 Mono



Black Sunday (1960)

In one of the most auspicious directorial debuts in movie history, Mario Bava bridged the gap between the gothic horror picture and the European art film with Black Sunday (aka La maschera del demonio or The Mask of Satan). Made in 1960 and now considered a cult classic, it continues to reverberate through the cinema, inspiring and influencing new generations of filmmakers.

In an absolutely mesmerizing performance, Black Sunday stars Barbara Steele as Asa Vajda, a beautiful woman tortured and executed as a witch--but not before pronouncing a curse upon those who have condemned her, a curse that is fulfilled some 200 years later.

Special Features:
1. Mastered in HD from an archival 35mm print
2. Audio commentary by Tim Lucas, author of Mario Bava: All the Colors of the Dark
3. Original theatrical trailers from this other Bava films

Italy 1960 B&W 87 Min. 1.66:1 1920 x 1080p 2.0 Mono



Lisa and The Devil / The House of Exorcism (1973)

Regarded as Mario Bava's most personal and unconventional film, Lisa and The Devil (Lisa e il diavolo) is a diabolical thriller flavored with the dreadful imagery and tormenting logic of an endless nightmare.

Elke Sommer stars as a tourist in Spain who, upon seeing the image of a bald, grinning devil in an ancient fresco, wanders away from her group and finds herself drawn into a confounding labyrinth of mystery--lured ever deeper by a mysterious figure (Telly Savalas) who may in fact be the fresco's Satan made flesh.

After some distributors found Lisa and The Devil too mystifying for release, producer Alfredo Leone (with Bava's uncredited assistance) hired veteran actor Robert Alda, shot additional scenes, and transformed Lisa into The House of Exorcism , capitalizing on the popularity of demon possession films. While sharing much of the same material, the films have come to be looked upon as two distinct entities, beautifully illuminating the stylistic diversity of the Bava/Leone partnership.

Special Features:
1. Audio commentary on Lisa and the Devil by Tim Lucas, author of Mario Bava: All the Colors of the Dark
2. Audio commentary on The House of Exorcism by producer Alfredo Leone and actress Elke Sommer
3. "Bava on Bava: An Interview with Lamberto Bava" (by Daniel Gouyette)
