Black Sunday: Remastered Edition (1960) Lorber Films Blu-ray and DVD Available Now
One of director Mario Bava’s most acclaimed works, Black Sunday is a strikingly photographed “old dark castle” thriller revolving around witchcraft and possession. Barbara Steele (Piranha) gives a hypnotic performance as Katia, the unfortunate look-alike descendent of a witch who intends to possess her. This highly influential film, also shot by Bava, was the precursor to countless American and European gothic horrors. This is the uncut European print with a few extra minutes of footage, a different English track and Robert Nicolosi’s haunting original score. After years of ugly public domain releases, Black Sunday is finally being presented in its original aspect ratio with a high definition transfer struck from a pristine 35Mm archival print.

If you didn’t grow up during the late-80′s/early-90′s, you may not remember the Barbarian Brothers. Peter and David Paul were muscle-bound body builders known for their extreme dedication to their craft. One look at their impossibly chiseled physique and you knew you were dealing with a different breed of weight-lifter. In 1987, someone got the bright idea to cast the siblings in a fantasy flick called “The Barbarians”, a film I vaguely recall during the late-night Cinemax escapades of my youth. The film must have been a moderate success, as the brothers found themselves in a small batch of like-minded action/comedies which focused on the fact that they were big, they were strong, and, more importantly, they were twins. Enter John Paragon’s 1992 epic “Double Trouble”, a buddy cop flick which finds the two brothers joining forces to take down the dastardly son-of-a-bitch behind a high-stakes jewel smuggling operation. »
