Shock

Shock

Directed by Mario Bava

A woman becomes convinced her son is possessed by his father’s spirit in this fearsome finale to horror master Mario Bava’s brilliant career. After a breakdown, Dora (SUSPIRIA’s Daria Nicolodi) returns home. But her son’s unusually bad behavior leaves her terrified. Is she losing it - or is her ex-husband’s ghost trying to kill her? Unlike the film’s awful offspring, Lamberto Bava coaxed his dad out of a deep depression by writing a script bursting with jump-out-of-your-seat scares he knew Mario would love. The result is a must-see for fans of both father and son.

A woman becomes convinced her son is possessed by his dead father’s spirit.

Cast: Daria Nicolodi

Pretty pain-by-the-numbers until the last 10 minutes, then you get a classic gonzo Italian horror film ending.

I sit right in the middle on this one. Not Bava's best by a long shot, but not the worst thing.

I gave it one extra skull because the final 10 minutes were pretty effective :|
