Lisa and the Devil
Directed by Mario Bava
Mario Bava's most unusual film follows a tourist pulled into a hellish mystery. Elke Sommer (BARON BLOOD) stars as a tourist in Spain who, upon seeing the image of a bald, grinning devil in an ancient fresco, wanders away from her group and finds herself drawn into a confounding labyrinth of mystery "” lured ever deeper by a mysterious figure (Telly Savalas) who may in fact be the fresco's Satan made flesh. Will she escape? Or become Satan's bride? Bava's diabolical thriller is flavored with the dreadful imagery and tormenting logic of an endless nightmare. Contains strong language, sexual scenes, violence and gore.

One of Bava's better films.
Absolutely brilliant. A new favourite from the era.
My favourite Mario Bava, if I have to choose! Beautiful atmosphere, strange and melancholic.
Quite a moody & surreal film from the great Mario Bava.
Telly Savalas and the camera work are the highlights of this one. I love Mario Bava...but this one didn't do it for me.
