Creating a pervasive, pernicious atmosphere within a film should be akin to experiencing a lucid dream that upon recollection, remains visually familiar, but more or less inscrutable. Such an experience is not extremely rare in cinema, but it is largely uncommon. If one returns to the aforementioned dream-like model of film, that initial and subsequent experience is repeated, the plot and outcome ... read more

Inspector Sylvester is assigned to investigate the violent murder of a fashion house model Isabella, by a masked assailant. As the investigation proceeds all of the house’s various sins, including corruption, abortions, blackmail and drug addiction, begin to come to light. It turns out that Isabella had kept a diary detailing these vices, and now almost every employee becomes nervous.

“Creating a pervasive, pernicious atmosphere within a film should be akin to experiencing a lucid dream that upon recollection, remains visually familiar, but more or less inscrutable. Such an experience is not extremely rare in cinema, but it is largely uncommon. If one returns to the aforementioned dream-like model of film, that initial and subsequent experience is repeated, the plot and outcome becomes secondary, it is the potency of the context that triggers immediate recognition. Even if the narrative and story elements are recognisable, it is the contiguous atmosphere that retains its mesmeric qualities when viewed as a standalone work employing an unsettling ethereal tone. Mario Bava was one of few directors able to attain this intensely meditative, superficial firmament that was eas” read more

"One of the first giallos. It was made early sixties so it's kinda tame when compared to the films that followed this in the genre. But by the 60's movie standards there were some graphic stuff on the screen. The story is really familiar if you've seen giallos before. The killer's look was really great too. The Arrow films bluray was really great in quality and they did nice workbwith the restoration. You can definitely see how influental this film was for Dario Argento and the overall look of gi"

"7.12. Bluray Odotetusti visuaalisesti mieletön kokemus, Arrow:n upea levy antaa tosissaan oikeutta. Tämän lisäksi perillisiinsä verrattuna todella suoraviivainen murhamysteeri pysyy aidosti kiinnostavana."

" Date: 8/20/2019 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-watch Note: Probably Mario Bava's best movie in my opinion. The cinematography, story, music, characters and the atmosphere in this movie is top-notch. There's not a single dull moment in this movie. I can always watch this movie and still be very entertain by it. The thing I love the most about this movie is the colors because the movie is amazing to look at. Mario Bava's style of colors would help inspire film makers like Dario Argento to use his style of"

"Mario Bava’s mixing of emotionally motivated color and object-centric tactility set the visceral template for the giallo. Thematically, Blood and Black Lace offers the giallo an irresolvable obsession with female violation that’s simultaneously cruel and heartfelt. Here, the murders are understood to reflect a debasement that suggests a furthering of the debasement of modeling, a suggestion that’s literalized by the killer’s placement of the bodies in hideous poses, and by a purposefully"

"1.9. Bavan esigiallo on värimaailmaltaan ja visuaaliselta tyylittelyltään todella upean näköinen, mutta sitä katsoessani mietin useampaankin kertaan, haluanko oikeasti katsoa yksityiskohtaista naisten murhaamista. Murhien pääpaino on kuitenkin jopa seksuaalisessa alistamisessa ja orgastisessa hekumoinnissa, mikä tuntuu hieman arvelluttavalta. Tämä on myös yksi niistä syistä, miksi giallo tai slasher eivät anna minulle genrenä kovinkaan paljoa."

Look out world, its 2017 and I'm watching movies! (197 movies items)

"10/24/17 Directed by: Mario Bava Of course it looks great, being a giallo and all (plus some tasty Eastmancolor) and its not nearly as convoluted as other films in the genre, plus the ADR is surprisingly tolerable. Unfortunately, its also very dull and the "whodunit" aspect of the film is not even slightly compelling with all these completely undeveloped characters. "

"First viewing - July 21st Giallo Fest When I found out my neighborhood theatre was hosting a Giallo festival & I could see all 3 films for $25, I jumped on the festival pass & planned to spend time each night over this weekend watching the films. (They did weeknight screenings as well, but my weeknights are busy enough as it is.) They kicked off the festival properly with the film that's considered the first true Giallo film & the blueprint for those that followed, Mario Bava's Blood and Black"
