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.

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.
Fun giallo romp Seems Hitchcockian in its blend of humour and terror, but uniquely Bava in visual flair and all the better for it.
It's Mario Bava, an automatic 5 skulls. his cinematography is some of the best ever. All of his films are worth watching.
