What's the last classic Gothic that you read?
#5
Family of Vurkodlak (vampire) by Aleksey Tolstoy, second cousin of Leo. Atmospheric vampire story set in early 19th century Serbia, filmed (beautifully) in 1963 Italian anthology I Tre volti della paura (The Three Faces of Fear), directed by Mario Bava. Boris Karloff, who also hosts, stars in this segment in his only vampire role. Michele Mercier, gorgeous heroine of gorgeous Angelique film series (1960´s bodice-rippers based on the novels by Anne Golon) stars in another segment as a high-class prostitute. American version was heavily edited and censored that segment with Mercier became a totally new story! This version was called Black Sabbath to connect it to Bava´s hit La maschera del demonio (1960), which was called Black Sunday in English-speaking countries.
