A beautiful witch is sentenced to death for her evil deeds by her own brother, condemned to die by having a metal mask hammered onto her face before being burnt at the stake. As she passes, she puts a terrible curse on all her future descendants as the spikes of the death mask pierce her flesh... But when two unwitting travelers discover her final resting place and worse, drip blood on her resting corpse, they unleash her once again in all her stunningly beautiful, terrifying glory....
Banned in the UK on its release, Black Sunday is a groundbreaking film that opened the door for Spaghetti horror in all its gory glory.

Special 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 and 'Black Sunday' – the re-edited and re-dubbed AIP version with Les Baxter score, on home video for the first time

Lisa and the Devil

Street Date: January 28th.

Lisa (Elke Sommer) - an American tourist travelling in Spain - loses her tour party and seeks refuge in the tumbledown mansion of a blind countess after being guided there by the distinctly satanic butler of the house, Leandro (Telly Savalas, Horror Express, Kojak). The Son of the Countess notices Lisa's striking resemblance to his dead lover and pursues her as a night of murder, strange eroticism and dark hallucinations begins. Re-cut in the US to cash in on the popularity of William Friedkin's The Exorcist and released as The House of Exorcism (included in this special edition) the original Lisa and the Devil is Bava at his abstract and delirious best, delivering a 70s horror classic and a masterclass in cinema as feverish nightmare.

Street Date: March 25th.

When Martha marries into a close knit sect she finds herself shunned as an outsider by its fanatical members, but when her husband dies mysteriously while riding a tractor expressly forbidden as a tool of the devil, things take a darker turn. Marked as a incubus by her neighbors, time is running out for Martha and her visiting friends, as plagued by nightmares and fearing for their lives, they face the violent fury and retribution of old time religion. One of Hollywood's masters of terror presents a tale of rural horror and simmering evil from the golden age of video terror.

  • Optional English SDH Subtitles
  • Audio commentary with Wes Craven (Blu-ray only)
  • Brand new UK-exclusive interview with Wes Craven (Blu-ray only)

Once again, none i have heard of or have any interest in.

C'mon, were Battle Royale and the Romero zombie films really the best catalog titles they could get?

Maybe you should start watching a bit more and expand your horizons a bit so that you can get excited when such great releases are announced. Because these really are some of the best announcements to come out of Arrow since they started releasing on Blu-ray.

I would think that as a horror fan you should have at least been familiar with Black Sunday, an essential film, really.

When there's a specific title that's been rumored, I can get a bit impatient. Generally, I'm pretty happy anytime a catalog title gets announced. Even if I know I don't have any interest, others will. I've also lived long enough that I've actually changed my mind about a few things. When that happens, its great to have the releases available instead of locked away in some vault.

Excellent line-up, too bad some of them have already been released state-side. Let's hope Arrow stays around for a long time unlike Blue Underground that are showing all the signs of a distributor running on fumes and it saddens me; they were my favorite horror label

The only dilemma I face with Arrow Blu-rays - and it's a pleasant one really - is that most of their titles are available from US distributors, with different transfers and different extras. So which to get? I end up buying both, usually.

Quite excited about "I Vampiri" - I do hope it's in HD.

@Philly Q

I was wondering the same thing about I Vampiri; somehow, something tells me it will be like a bonus feature and only in SD. I wish they would specify...

Whoa, the Bava releases sound like hugely better offerings than the US counterparts. I hope the transfers live up to expectations, because Black Sunday and Lisa & The Devil are my 2 favorite Bava films and I want them in the best possible presentation.

Shoot! didn't think I would need to re-buy the Bava titles so soon after the Kino BDs. Two of my favorite films so the extras are worth it. Also hoping against hope that I-Vampiri is in HD. At least I sold my DVD copy some time ago, so not a total waste.
Like, others I just wish Arrow would drop that white border format on their cover designs, it really ruins the artwork. They should just let the artwork fill the frame of the covers (including the alternate ones), or even a black border would be less ugly.

why Have I bought the US release of Bava's films !!! Kino did it fine, but those release seem far superior...

I wish Arrow released them in digipack tough... oh well, they are great release anyway (and I'm very happy that italian language is included)

"Score" is not the full uncut version I suppose... so I think it's better the american uncut release of this That I already have, unless you don't fell the need of a long all-men explicit scene in order to enjoy the movie.
