Edgar Allan Poe’s The Black Cat has been adapted to film many times. There are the classics like the 1934 universal film starring Bela Lugosi and Borris Karloff, the 1941 version starring Basil Rathbone and Bela Lugosi, and the 1962’s tales of terror directed by roger Cornman and starring Vincent Price, Basil Rathbone, and Peter Lorre.

And then we have the Italian versions. Now when I say the best Italian horror directors of all time who are the first 4 that come to mind? For me it’s Mario Bava, Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci and Sergio Martino. Out of those 4, only Mario Bava never worked on an adaptation of The black cat. You have Argento's “Two Evil Eyes”, Martino’s Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key, and the film that we are looking at tonight, Lucio Fulci’s The Black Cat.
