Directed by Mario Bava

Italy 1960 87 mins. In Italian with English subtitles

Italian Horror Master Mario Bava’s official directorial debut Black Sunday (or The Mask of Satan) follows a murdered witch’s curse on her treacherous brother’s descendants. A shock to critics and censors at the time, this gothic horror still packs a brutal punch.

Content Warning: violence and grotesque imagery.

 



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
