Bava is King!

Blood and Black Lace posters are like lurid paperback novel covers.

Third one from the top - perfect artistic rendition of Barbara Steele's unique physiognomy.

BS is a goddess. Love those spooky, protuberant eyes, cheeks, and lips.

I think my favorite is the French 6 femmes pour l'assassin.

Not much to translate this week that's not obvious, but at the bottom of the Dutch La Baie Sanglante (what a euphonious title, that!) it says "Blood in the Sea."

And for Bavaisti, I highly recommend the documentary reviewed here.

I love the fourth poster from the top, which is for Black Sunday but seems to borrow the image of Jacqueline Pierreux screaming from "The Drop of Water" episode of Black Sabbath.

Pure goodness--thank you for sharing these! I've never seen the fourth one before. It looks a little like some of the Thai horror film posters I've seen with its wild colors and eye-catching layout. Wish I could find a gallery of these, but here's a nifty article on the topic:

Fun Fact: The image on the first I Vampiri poster later popped up on the cover to a Sexton Blake paperback:
