Blood and Black Lace
Directed by Mario Bava
When young model, Isabella, is murdered by a masked killer, the employees of a chic Italian fashion house find themselves the next targets of the mysterious assailant. A missing diary, a torrid affair, deception and backstabbing are all potential motives for the fashion house slayings. This seminal thriller by legendary Italian filmmaker, Mario Bava, became the blueprint for giallo cinema with its visually arresting colour scheme, set piece murders and convoluted plot. A great influence on fellow Italian director, Dario Argento, BLOOD AND BLACK LACE went on to shape Italian horror, as well as the slasher film of the 1980s. Contains violence and gore.
A masked killer terrorizes a chic fashion house in Mario Bava's seminal giallo.

So stylish, sleek, love the opening, will keep you guessing.
A thrilling caper, putting the slash in slashtastic! Only issue is the screenplay and a couple of performances by smaller roles. But a easy watch and a fun colorful set!
The best giallo ever made.
Excellent movie, beautifully shot, had me guessing who the killer was. The third kill was brutal
The giallo classic. Some of the best sequences ever shot.
