Eerie ! Horriffic !! Blood Curdling !!!
Mario Bava’s Kill, Baby… Kill is an eerie gothic ghost-story. A small Transylvanian village is haunted by the specter of a homicidal adolescent girl, believed to be “Melissa” the murdered daughter and vengeful ghost of Baroness Graps’, who wants to collect all of the souls of the hapless villagers. A creepy vision in white whose little-girl giggles become chilling as she randomly chooses her victims and sends them to their gory deaths. When a city coroner arrives to examine the latest victim in a long string of “suicides,” he discovers a town of deserted
streets, suspicious and terrified townspeople, and a conspiracy of silence. The victims are being found with coins planted in their hearts. Bava sets a moody stage of empty streets blanketed nightly in a swirling mist and flooded with lights of red, blue, and green. He has created a film full of fear, terror, murder. You won’t find a lot of gore in Kill, Baby… Kill, but you do get a great eerie atmosphere and surprisingly enough, horror sex-icon Erica Blanc keeps her clothes on.
The assistant director on Kill, Baby… Kill was Mario’s son Lamberto Bava, who later went on to become a filmmaker in his own right, with A Blade In The Dark, Demons and numerous other horror movies.
