Danza Macabra Vol 1 The Italian Gothic Collection 04/18/23
Severin’s latest deluxe collector’s box gathers a quartet of ‘Gothic holdovers,’ Italo productions that persist with spooky castles, strange noblemen and aggressively passionate leading ladies. They range from the B&W ’60s to the more permissive screens of the early ’70s, when contemporary-set Giallos took over. The group includes an oddity, a rarity and a garish pair of titles imported for U.S. drive-ins — in their original versions and multiple languages, of course: The Monster of the Opera, The Seventh Grave, Scream of the Demon Lover and Lady Frankenstein. On Blu-ray from Severin Films.
