Editorial Reviews

For Master Of The Macabre Mario Bava (Black Sunday), ''Rabid Dogs'' was to be the most startling film of his entire career: After a botched payroll heist, a trio of vicious criminals take hostages in a desperate getaway that explodes with cruelty, degradation and shocking violence. But when the film's financier was killed during the last stages of production, his entire estate - including the sole unfinished work print of ''Rabid Dogs'' was seized and impounded by an Italian court. Mario Bava's final masterpiece - and one of the most intense EuroCrime thrillers of all time - would remain locked away for nearly 23 years. In 1997 Alfredo Leone and Mario's son (and longtime assistant) Lamberto Bava finished the film, adorning it with the title ''Kidnapped'', and features new footage added, overseen by Leone and Lamberto Bava in order to complete the film. Movie only edition. In Italian with English subtitles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Desperate car ride Bava-style November 2, 2013
By orvuus
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
First of all, Kino's recent run of Bava on blu ray has been a dream come true for me. I resisted watching this until I got this blu ray -- and I'm glad I did. Apparently there are two different versions of this film, as once again Bava had just about finished the movie when they pulled out the rug from under him. This blu ray version has flawless picture and sound, and the story will take hold of you from the start and never let go. If this had been released at the time it was made, it would have been considered a classic, but now that it is out, it is still lingering in obscurity. A fine film, and the final film with Bava firmly in the director's chair. Kudos to Kino for this quality release. (Now please somebody release Blood and Black Lace, Kill Baby Kill, and Planet of the Vampires on blu ray!).

5.0 out of 5 stars A Stunning Departure February 23, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
"Kidnapped" is Lamberto Bava's re-titled completion of his famous father's 1974 film "Rabid Dogs" which is such a departure for Mario Bava, if the famed director had lived longer, I think this film would have brought him even more recognition. Lamberto had already coaxed the director out of early retirement and the result was Mario Bava winning an award for his screenplay for the 1977 final film "Shock," but I think the more aptly re-titled "Kidnapped" definitely threw me off with its unexpected brilliance. I really do not want to give any spoilers here by talking about the plot, but it is stunning, well acted, and I don't think Lamberto had to do very much to it to finish the effort, which credit should lavished on his father, who began so many trends in the horror film business by creating the blueprints for the first giallo ("Blood and Black Lace") and the first slasher movie ("A Bay of Blood") and was always on the edge of increasing his genius. Kino's Blu-ray remastered edition is excellent, however, the only extras are other Bava trailers. Color.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hijacked March 18, 2014
Q: Why do you need "Kidnapped" when you have "Rabid Dogs"?
A: You don't.

If someone was to suggest that a Rembrandt painting
be touched up here and there, that individual would
be vilified.
I guess film art has been compromised
by an opinion that it is only mindless entertainment
and therefore subject to mutilation.
nb: I like mindless entertainment :-)

If Mario Bava is the great genius of cinema that he is nearly
universally claimed to be, and he is, why alter his work?
Both movies are on this DVD, so you don't need to decide
which one you want before making a decision to get a copy.
That is as it should be in the world of DVD's and Anchor Bay
does it right, as usual.

*** contains spoilers***
"Rabid Dogs" is a great and relentless action movie,
from start to finish.
Very cynical.
One of the ancestors of "Reservoir Dogs" of more recent fame.
If you want happy endings and answers to the meaning of life,
look elsewhere.
"The Last House On The Left" (original)
is a philosophical meditation compared to "Rabid Dogs".

The cover insert states that "Rabid Dogs" has been given
a newly created opening credits sequence.
It is great, but what was the original one?
This movie fan wants to see it.
The music for "Rabid Dogs" is amazing. Just right.
Tense, edgy rock music with distorted "fuzz" guitar
that starts at the opening credits and underlies the movie's action.
"Kidnapped" uses generic atmospheric symphonic music
appropriate for a ladies tea party. WTF?!
