Black Sunday (1960)

****
Italy

A delicious low-budget mix of wooden acting, cheesy vampire mythology, cheap though effective Gothic sets, clever bits of gore and very exciting high-contrast visuals. The plot is reportedly derived from a Gogol story and evidently it was deemed absolutely necessary that the original 1830's Moldavia setting should be retained.
