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.

Mario Bava at his wildest.
This movie made me cry real tears and not because it was tragic. Please watch this.
Great history lesson. I wanted to check it out as it’s considered the first “slasher” and I can totally see how it influenced generations of movies that came after it. Honestly, it’s a little hard to follow what’s going on, but it makes sense in the end. Worth watching at least once.
Today marks the 50th anniversary of this movie's release. Of corpse I was going to be watching this bad boy
I really liked it.
