Capital Celluloid 2022 — Day 349: Sun Dec 18

Black Sunday (Bava, 1960): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 6.30pm

This film is part of the In Dreams are Monsters season (and also being screened on December 9th) at BFI Southbank. Full details here.

Time Out review:
A classic horror film (from a story by Gogol) involving Barbara Steele as a resurrected witch who was burned to death in a small medieval town and seeks revenge on her persecutors. The exquisitely realised expressionist images of cruelty and sexual suggestion shocked audiences in the early '60s, and occasioned a long-standing ban by the British censor.
David Pirie

Here (and above) is the trailer.
