Abstract:

"The grand master of Italian horror, Mario Bava, captivated audiences around the world with his dreamlike, horrifying, and visually breathtaking films, all of which relied on creativity and visual trickery rather than big budgets. Though marketed as B-movies during the 1960s and 1970s, Bava's films have earned a large cult following for their artistry and their ability to chill viewers with uncanny skill. From his classic first feature, Black Sunday, to rapturous color favorites like Black Sabbath and Danger: diabolik, Bava's work is discussed in depth in this program, which also reveals how much he influenced later horror/sci-fi films, not to mention future generations of directors like Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese, Ridley Scott, and Brian DePalma"--Container.
