The Evil Eye

The Evil Eye

Directed by Mario Bava

svg-play Trailer

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.

This influential early giallo follows a tourist who witnesses a grisly murder.

Pretty good early Giallo. I pretty much guessed who the killer was early on, but Leticia Roman is a fetching heroine, and studly John Saxon is always nice to have around. Bava's direction is solid, if more tame than it would soon become. The lighthearted coda at the end is kind of weird.
