CFQ Post-Mortem: More on Black Sunday and Mario Bava

Following up on the Cinefantastique Podcast 1.26, Dan Persons, Lawrence French, and Steve Biodrowski delve deeper into the mysteries of director Mario Bava and Black Sunday, not to mention the distinction between giallo and Gothic horror.

Black Sunday was Bava's directorial debut, and its reputation is so grand among fans that many think he never topped it; however, the CFQ Podcast crew suggest a few subsequent titles worthy of standing side-by-side with Bava's black-and-white masterpiece, including Blood and Black Lace, Danger: Diabolik, Bay of Blood and Lisa and the Devil.

Plus: General natterings and a discussion of the potential merits of Piranha 3D vs. The Last Exorcism.
