A Bay of Blood

A Bay of Blood

Directed by Mario Bava

When a rich Countess dies, strange murders befall people trying to claim her property in Mario Bava's gruesome giallo, which many credit with giving birth to the slasher genre. Combining his famously rich cinematography style with increasingly bizarre murders, Bava's film became a favorite of directors like Joe Dante and horror historian Stephen Thrower. It also found many detractors, including horror icon Christopher Lee, who found the extreme violence revolting. Controversial, disturbing and incredibly influential, A BAY OF BLOOD is a total must-see. Contains sexual scenes, violence and gore.

Good movie! I enjoyed the story but like several commenters said, it was a rather unexpected ending. I have always been fascinated with Italian horror films!

Great movie. I love Bava's movies. My only problem was the silly ending. They should of done something better then that.

Fun and beautifully shot but disjointed with a goofy ending.
