Kill, Baby…Kill!: Mario Bava’s classic supernatural mystery coming from Arrow in September
In 1966, after a three-year hiatus, maverick Italian genre director Mario Bava (Black Sunday, Twitch of the Death Nerve) returned to his preferred stomping ground of horror, conjuring up a spine-tingling tale of Gothic terror whose influence would resonate within international horror filmmaking for decades to come. Now, Arrow Video is bringing that masterpiece back in a DVD/Blu-ray combo pack on September 11th. We’re talking about the immortal Kill, Baby…Kill!
In the early 20th century, pathologist Dr Paul Eswai (Giacomo Rossi-Stuart, The Last Man on Earth) is summoned to a remote Carpathian village to perform an autopsy on a woman who died under mysterious circumstances. With the locals convinced they are being haunted by the spirit of a young girl who died years ago, can the steadfastly rational doctor find a logical explanation to the strange goings-on… or will his rational beliefs be destroyed by the dark secret that lies within the crumbling walls of the ancient Villa Graps?
Kill, Baby…Kill! stars the unforgettable Erika Blanc (The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave, The Devil’s Nightmare). Kill, Baby…Kill! arrived at the tail-end of the golden age of Italian horror and is regarded by many as Bava’s masterpiece.
