Editorial Reviews

When a rich countess is murdered, it's a race to see who'll inherit her estate and you can bet that the body count is going to rise rapidly in the process as the plot twists spin wildly out of control. The pile of bloodied corpses is going to get higher and higher as each one of the mangled victims are hung, speared, stabbed and macheted. One by one, the horrific murders turn the screen crimson with blood… A Bay of Blood! English Dubbed Version.

SPECIAL FEATURES: Alternate Italian language version (with differing footage), Audio Commentary by Tim Lucas, Original movie trailers for Mario Bava films

Customer Reviews

Picture quality is great!
Brigit Ryan
It (to me) seemed like there was too much going on, and it was hard to watch the movie, enjoy the kills and think about the story.
J. Cook
If you're a fan of slasher films or giallo horror, then this is well known as a masterpiece.

Bay of Blood/Twitch of the Death Nerve is a legendary horror film from director Mario Bava. In the Arrow Video region-free release, the picture quality is great but the sound is average. There is a decent amount of supplements for the film believed to have inspired Friday the 13th and its first sequel. The Kino Classic release is fairly similar with the same problems but contains much less bonus content. Many Bava fans consider this film a must own for their collection.

Arrow Video Special Features:
- Reversible sleeve with original and newly commissioned art work
- Double-sided fold-out poster
- Collector's Booklet by Jay Slater, critic and author of Eaten Alive!
- Brand new high definition transfer of the English version of the film (1080p)
- 2 versions of the film including the Italian cut
- Original Mono Audio
- Twitch of the Death Nerve Radio Spots
- Argento! Bava! Fulci! The Giallo Gems of Dardano Sacchetti (1080p)
- Joe Dante on Mario Bava (1080p)
- Shooting a Spaghetti Splatter Classic: Cameraman Gianlorenzo Battaglia on A Bay of Blood (1080p)
- Audio discussion with Tim Lucas, author of Mario Bava: All the Colors of the Dark
- A Bay of Blood Trailers: `Carnage' and `Twitch of the Death Nerve' with commentary by Edgar Wright, director of Shaun of the Dead.

Kino Classic Special Features: Audio Commentary, Alternate European Cut (85-Minute), Trailers

Buy the Arrow Video imported release of Bay of Blood on Blu-ray. It has managed to hold its value.

Simitar video's transfer to DVD of this classic slasher film is nothing short of an abomination. The picture quality is inferior to my VHS print. Amazon have the aspect ratio as 2.35:1.It is 1.77:1 at best!

This is more a review based on the quality of the Blu-ray than an overview of the film. If you're a fan of slasher films or giallo horror, then this is well known as a masterpiece. It is a giallo classic, and it is a precursor to the slasher film. It's also one colorful, strangely motivated trip of a film. It is also available in the 2nd Bava boxed-set, in DVD format, and as a single disc release. As a horror film, the work is genius. Bava was a master, and this is one gory murder expose. The kill scenes were instant classics in their time, and the film has aged as well as Bava's earlier works like the beautifully gothic Black Sunday, or the giallo masterpiece, Blood and Black Lace. Yet, it remains incomparable to them in certain ways, and is more comparable to those he influenced including Argento and Fulci, and it's clear that his camerawork in this film helped take the stalker viewpoint into the slasher perspective, something that influenced his future counterparts in America during the late 70s and 80s slasher advance.

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.

Terrible picture and audio quality on this DVD mar Bava's pioneering effort. The transfer is just the pits, I'm sorry to say, and takes away from the film's enjoyment.
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.

if you are a horror fan like myself and love the early friday the 13th movies especially pt 1-2 you will immediately notice the influence of Bava Bay of Blood(AKA Twitch of the Death nerve) You will see the heavy influence of the kill scenes throughout this movie. Bava to me is the most talented out the holy trinity of Italian horror directors that came on the scene the movie still hold up to today standards of horror and in some cases surpassed it ..A must have if you're a Bava fan..

Apparently this is the best transfer out there, reportedly better than the UK Arrow blu ray, but I think it could still look better. It's a bit dupey, and colors could pop a more. It could also sound better, even though it's a huge improvement over the awful Image DVD. The Italian version looks similar to my old Italian Raro DVD - dark, soft and a bit beaten up. All previous releases look like they've been at the mercy of the available elements, so, until someone finds the negatives... . Anyway, it would be really nice if the Italian version (the English version, too, but the Italian version, with different dialogue scenes, is better) got a proper restoration someday. The Tim Lucas commentary is good, as usual. For now, this will have to do.

I was a bit bummed about Kino Lorber doing the releases for a lot of these Bava films. The Lorber name has been bad news since the Fox Lorber VHS days when they were doing HORRIBLE releases of some of the most respected films in the world (many of which have lately fallen into the more caring hands of The Criterion Collection, thank god). Kino also has traditionally had a respectable catalogue of classics, but they seemed to have always settled for just adequate, and the UK editions of many of their titles (Eureka! Masters of Cinema) tend to be far superior to the American releases. So my expectations are low, and I do my homework before buying Bava on blu. Most of the Arrow editions seem to be superior in terms of both the transfers and the extras. Kino will finally be releasing the AIP versions of 'Black Sunday' and 'Black Sabbath,' but 1080p versions of these are included as extras on the Arrow discs, and the transfers (at least of the versions familiar in digital formats) appear to be better, to boot.
