Buy the Arrow Video imported release of Bay of Blood on Blu-ray. It has managed to hold its value.
A summary of the film... people trespass at the wrong place at the wrong time, and the title holds true to the film, as there is a vicious and multi-seeded land dispute going on as the backstory. Bava elevated the disturbance of the audience through dedicated violence and dread-based suspense, rather than the atmospheric suspense he relied upon in his films from the 60s. This film was a turning point for Bava, in ways, this work really let him stretch out.
The quality of the DVD was good, a lot better than the VHS recording I grew up with. However, when the Blu-ray came out, I knew it was one of the few films from the 70s that I was interested in purchasing.Read more ›
There's rumored to be another release of this coming from the same folks who recently released "Black Sunday", with which they did an excellent job. Wait for that, and pick up "Black Sunday" or "Baron Blood" in the meantime.
The simple gist for the those that are new to it is: An elderly wheelchair bound woman named Countess Federica is seized and throttle with a noose by her husband, Filippo Donati. Donati places a supposed suicide note on a table and in a short time some unseen other killer stabs Donati and drags his corpse off to the bay. The police just runs with the countess's death just being a suicide and somehow are never aware about Donati's death. It isn't long before multiple murders soon ensue by one or more people that have a high desire to claim ownership of the Countess's bay property. Our possible suspects are: Countess Federica's beautiful daughter Renata, her husband Albert, sleazy real estate agent Frank Ventura, Frank's sexy secretary and lover Laura, local fisherman Simon, entomologist Paolo Fassati, and Paolo's psychic wife Anna.
The camera work is incredibly detailed showing the full environment outside and inside the houses.Read more ›

This movie was equal parts maddening and fascinating as an early excursion into slasher flicks. Maddening in that cameraman Mario Bava didn't seem to know which way was up. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Einsatz

This is the beginning of the evolution of modern horror. It isn't a horror movie, but it is horrific. Bava was way ahead of the curve.Published 15 months ago by James
This is a great slasher defining film. This Mario Bava classic is one of three movies that defined the slasher genre, the others being Peeping Tom and Black Christmas. IMO. Read morePublished 15 months ago by D. Nice
