Sinister Cinema: Black Sunday and Others

For the second offering in his latest Trilogy of Terror, Brian Leno provides a glimpse of the signature of Barbara Steele. Horror icon. Lots of movies, from Black Sunday on down.

One of that relatively small group of actors where you must admit that you’re watching the movie if for no other reason than that it is a Barbara Steele movie.

Here’s Brian with his remarks: 

Roger Corman’s The Pit and the Pendulum (1961) is usually one of those flicks that hits the television screen every Halloween, and I make a point of watching it, if only to catch the performances of Vincent Price and Barbara Steele.

One movie not shown so much is Black Sunday (1960), and that’s a pity because it is Steele’s greatest role. If you’ve never seen it, check it out — it’ll haunt you.

Her autograph is not too rare, but a signed photo from Black Sunday won’t be cheap — me, I settled for a index card signature.
