Black Sunday Released in High Definition

Great Britain Received Movie in 2 Different Cuts

In early February 2013, Arrow Video released the Mario Bava movie Black Sunday (AT: The Mask of Satan, OT: La Maschera del demonio) in the UK. The film was made in 1960 and was considered so brutal that it was banned in Great Britain and heavily censored in the US.

The Blu-ray now features both the European and the American version of the film, which might be interesting for fans because it has a different soundtrack (even though it's censored). A scene is missing in the EU version, as well, but it is included in the bonus section. Some reviews say that this scene was included in the Italian DVD.

 Bonus features:

  • High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentation of two versions of the film; The Mask of Satan the European version with score by Roberto Nicolosi & Black Sunday the re-edited and re-dubbed AIP version with Les Baxter score, on home video for the first time
  • Three audio versions: Optional Italian, European English and AIP English re-dub and re-score
  • English SDH subtitles for both English versions and a new English subtitle translation of the Italian audio
  • Audio Commentary with Bava biographer and expert Tim Lucas
  • Introduction to the film by author and critic Alan Jones
  • Interview with star and horror icon Barbara Steele
  • Deleted Scene from the Italian version with notes by Tim Lucas
  • iverse TrailerI Vampiri (1956) Italy s first sound horror film directed by Riccardo Freda and Mario Bava
  • US I Vampiri Trailer The Devil's Commandment
  • Trailer reel trailers of all the major works by Mario Bava including rarities from the early part of his career
  • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Graham Humphreys
