The Evil Eye

The Evil Eye

Directed by Mario Bava

This influential early giallo follows a tourist who witnesses a vicious murder. But when no body is found, nobody believes poor Nora Davis. Nobody except love interest John Saxon (Heather Langenkamp's father in A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET) of course. But could he be the killer? Mario Bava's last film in black and white is nonetheless as chilling and creepy as his later efforts. Widely credited for helping spawn the genre that directors like Dario Argento and Sergio Martino would turn into high art, Bava's film is an important film in the director's oeuvre.

It's pretty as you want in a giallo but quite boring for the majority of the film.

Very suspenseful Argento type movie. I LOVE Giallo movies.

A thoroughly enjoyable Hitchcockian murder mystery, filmed with the same elegance of Bava's masterpiece Black Sunday.

Ok for it’s time, certainly one of the lesser Bava movies. Kept my interest though but there is a lull in the middle. However the beserk ending is worth the price of admission here.
