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.

Very middle of the road for me. Has some interesting shots, but besides that not particularly my cup of tea.

Wow! This is a great gothic horror. The sets and atmosphere shine in that gorgeous old technicolor. Creepy with well done practical effects and an interesting cast. Visually appealing at every angle and the story is compelling. This is my new favorite Mario Bava film!
