    Interesting you mention Bava, since his Black Sunday aka Mask of the Demon was intended to be an adaptation of the same story (although it has hardly anything in common).

    Yeah, funny enough that was a coincidence. I was fortunate enough to see the original Italian language version of Black Sunday which was awesome, the Anchor Bay DVD set is (of course) the AIP cut which is fine but the original cut is fantastic. I can’t see any of the same story in Viy or Black Sunday, must be like the countless iterations of Dracula over the years?
    Bava is a masterful director though, have you seen any of the Kino Blu Rays? I’m not clear if they include both AIP, and Italian audio tracks, or one or the other based on what I’ve seen online.
