This chapter discusses Black Sunday's influence that was not only felt in the movies. It mentions Marvel man Jack Kirby that used the central Mask of Satan image and the character Javuto as inspiration for Doctor Doom, including the backstory of being the son of an Eastern European witch. It also talks about Black Sunday's influence on Tobe Hooper's Lifeforce in 1985, which featured a gorgeous and completely naked female vampire that is awoken from her slumber. The chapter emphasizes how the Mario Bavian imagery can be detected in a range of contemporary movies and television shows, such as Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer, that was aired from 1997 to 2003. It cites Francis Ford Coppola's 1992 feature, Bram Stoker's Dracula that could be retitled 'Mario Bava's Dracula'.
