For the fourteenth day of the B&S About Movies April Movie Thon, it’s time to you to enjoy my favorite movies. No giallo, no Eurospy, no peplum, no post-apocalypse or rip-off movies, just Italian horror.

April 14: Viva Italian Horror — Pick an Italian horror movie and dig into the pasta sauce and gore.

All April long, we’ll have thirty themes as writing prompts. If you’d like to be part of it, you can just send us an article for that day to bandsaboutmovies@gmail.com or post it on your site and share it out with the hashtag #BSAprilMovieThon.

Here are some films that we can recommend to watch today:

Black Sunday (1960): I really don’t know if a better horror movie has ever been made. Stare into these eyes!

The Beyond (1981): Lucio Fulci also made The Black CatCity of the Living Dead and House by the Cemetery all in the same twleve months, which is incredible. This would be the best of those films, a movie that is at once horror and a surrealist journey into incomprehension.

Demons (1985):  A near-perfect assault, Demons is everything people warned you about horror movies, all within one non-stop barrage. One of the greatest horror movies ever made, it oozes, it bleeds and tears through the screen.

What are you watching?
