A Blade in the Dark

A Blade in the Dark

Directed by Lamberto Bava

In Lamberto Bava’s second contribution to the giallo genre, a psychopath stalks a composer who’s writing the score for a horror film. After the film’s director sets Bruno up in a stylish house, he begins working on the Goblin-esque score, not realizing that a real maniac is slicing up women all over the property. Bruno soon learns the film holds the key to catching the killer, and that he and his girlfriend are in grave danger. Bava follows the footsteps of his famous father, serving up a stylish slasher filled with memorable murders and a Hitchcockian finale.

Italian horror films are surpsingly really good! I enjoyed this one, although the plot was a little slow to start off.

It was a delightful, atmospheric mess until the extremely dated and over explained ending. The dubbing is hilariously bad in parts, frustratingly stupid in others.
