A Bay of Blood

4 months ago at Jun 14 17:00
Is this Mario Bava’s most violent film? It seems entirely possible as it contains thirteen deaths, each a series of escalating gore and slaughter until it all culminates in a sick joke. Bava’s particular brand of giallo was built upon nihilism, but A Bay of Blood feels completely unconcerned with narrative coherence in favor of shocks, titillation and splatter.   If Psycho was the first ste... read more

"6.10. Mario Bavan esislasherissa on piristävää nähdä, miten lähestulkoon jokainen lahdella pyörivä tyyppi on murhaaja sen sijaan, että joku jahtaisi kaikkia. Bavalle tyypillisesti nähdään idioottimaisen herkullisia juonenkäänteitä ja repeilyttävän törkeitä ja täysin puskista tulevia murhia. Kaunistelemattoman arkipäiväinen värimaailma tukee elokuvan juonta lahden luonnontilassa säilyttämisestä. Kaikesta tästä huolimatta kyse on slasherista, joten pisteet tulevat sen "

“Is this Mario Bava’s most violent film? It seems entirely possible as it contains thirteen deaths, each a series of escalating gore and slaughter until it all culminates in a sick joke. Bava’s particular brand of giallo was built upon nihilism, but A Bay of Blood feels completely unconcerned with narrative coherence in favor of shocks, titillation and splatter.   If Psycho was the first steps of the slasher genre then A Bay of Blood went a long way towards hardening the template. It plays like a dry-run of Friday the 13th at several moments, not only in its segue of horny teenagers in the woods getting hacked to pieces with a machete but in its several lingering shots of the shimmering, simmering body of water that becomes a repository for several secrets.

"October 25 "Man should live and let live, and without any interfering." I actually tried watching this one earlier this month, but wasn't in the right mood, so I stopped watching 20 minutes in with the intent of trying again before the month ends. With that said, this was a solid b-movie. Not only that, but it's one that is important to the slasher film as it's one of the earliest of its kind. The story is kind of lacking by today's standards and the acting can be cheesy at times, but it's s"

" LAST WATCHED: 6/1/2017I can now say that I've seen an Italian giallo film. This had limited time left on Shudder, so I gave it a try. Compared to today's films, this was quite tame, but I quickly found out what makes an Italian giallo what it is. "
