BLACK SUNDAY (aka THE MASK OF SATAN) sees Steele and Bava at the peak of their powers, a pivotal film in the ensuing cannon of great Italian gothic horror pictures. Steele essays two roles, that of a delicate maiden and centuries old witch in a gruesome, atmospheric tale photographed in silver-toned black and white and filled with violence and genuine terror. A masterpiece of golden-age European horror…
Steele is one of many guests at HORROR-RAMA’s weekend-long fan party. Also appearing are pioneering shock rocker Nivek Ogre, of the industrial performance-art band Skinny Puppy; psychosexual horror author Michael Slade (HEADHUNTER, GHOUL), filmmaker and author Jovanka Vuckovic; FX legend, actor and filmmaker, Tom Savini, British born, Toronto based FX artist Paul Jones (NIGHTBREED, SILENT HILL, NURSE 3D); FRANKENHOOKER starlet Patty Mullen; costume designer Alex Kavanagh (SAW, GINGER SNAPS, LAND OF THE DEAD, REPO!) and Tim Burton’s former muse, actress model Lisa Marie (SLEEPY HOLLOW, ED WOOD, MARS ATTACKS).
The brainchild of Toronto cult cinema institution SUSPECT Video and its owner Luis Ceriz and FANGORIA editor Chris Alexander, HORROR-RAMA is a niche convention, bringing together legends of horror cinema and dark pop culture for an intimate and interactive couple of days in the heart of the city at expansive gallery space 99 SUDBURY.
And YES, we’ll be announcing ticket sales soon too so stay tuned!
