Kill Baby Kill

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.

Somehow while I was growing up loving Hammer and AIP's gothic horror movies from the 60s and 70s, I never saw this one, probably because of the awful title that makes it sound like an exploitation film. The reality is that it's an excellent gothic horror/thriller from Mario Bava that feels very similar to his classic Black Sunday, so if you like that sort of film, you'll definitely want to check this one out.

Thatsa gooda Bava! If you appreciate strong cinematography and gothic elements like ghosts and rural/traditional settings, you will love this movie. For me, it's right up there with Black Sunday and The Evil Eye.

Great film for its time with some surprisingly inventive kills (although obvs not very gory) and really creepy moments. The ending although a good idea was not played out super well and kinda took me out of it for a moment, but overall still a great flick.
