Kill Baby Kill
Directed by Mario Bava
An 18th century European village is haunted by the ghost of a murderous little girl in Mario Bava's greatest and most visually stunning horror film. Bava pulled out all the stops here, mixing gothic horror and a dreamlike story about an evil Baroness in the thrall of her undead daughter. Scorsese called it Bava's best film, Fellini used it as inspiration for his famous TOBY DAMMITT, and David Lynch referenced it directly in both the series finale of TWIN PEAKS and the big screen follow-up FIRE WALK WITH ME. If you only watch one Bava film, make it this one.

If you can handle the usual cheese of gothic horror, this is a great movie. Super melodramatic, with a good mystery plot, and several cool twists. Well-made and quintessentially Bava. Highly recommended.
Absolutely one of the best horror films ever made. Bava was an amazing auteur in his time.
I gave it 5 skulls because I thought the movie was terrible. Get it? I'm the people that suck at these reviews!
I wish these werent overdubs--it kind of ruins it for me...
An incredibly simple tale told with technical brilliance. Bava proved himself again as one of the finest horror filmmakers out there. The guy can build atmosphere like nobody else, nowhere is that more prominent than in this one. The entire film hinges on the creepy psychedelic vibe and it works perfectly.
