Six hour-long films based on stories by 19th century horror/fantasy authors

WORLDWIDE DISC PREMIERE OF THE ACCLAIMED ITALIAN TV ANTHOLOGY



In 1981, RAI-TV presented six hour-long films based on stories by 19th century horror/fantasy authors from such directors as Giulio Questi (DJANGO, KILL!), Marcello Aliprandi (A WHISPER IN THE DARK) and Giovanna Gagliardo (STREET OF MIRRORS), starring actors that included Veronica Lario (TENEBRE), Saverio Vallone (ANTHROPOPHAGOUS) and Stefano Madia (THE DEVIL'S HONEY). But it was the mini-series' second episode that remains its most celebrated: The final work of legendary director Mario Bava - and the debut of his son Lamberto Bava as co-director - LA VENERE D'ILLE/THE VENUS OF ILLE stars Daria Nicolodi (DEEP RED) and Marc Porel (DON'T TORTURE A DUCKLING) in an elegantly chilling tale of supernatural love. Five episodes have been sourced from broadcast masters, with Bava's swan song restored from a 16mm print discovered in the RAI vault by film preservationists Simone Starace and the late Michele De Angelis.
