A Bay of Blood (Digital) @ 5th Avenue Cinema | Free Popcorn, Violent Italian Horror, Pioneer of American Slasher Films, Free Admission for Portland State University Students

A Bay of Blood (Digital)
All Ages
More info: 5thavecinema.com

A Bay of Blood (Digital)
Dir. Mario Bava (1971); Italy, 84m
Starring: Claudine Auger, Luigi Pistilli, Laura Betti
Programmed by: Sam Schrader

A Bay of Blood, directed by Mario Bava (“the Master of the Macabre”), is a brutally violent masterpiece of Italian horror. The plot follows the murderous exploits of a host of characters as they employ whatever gruesome means necessary to ensure their claim to an inheritance. However, in true giallo fashion, the plot is secondary to the erotic, frenzied, and ultimately game-changing kills depicted on screen. A Bay of Blood (also known as Carnage, Twitch of the Death Nerve, and Blood Bath) was recognized at the time for its achievement in special effects makeup. It’s little surprise that the film is considered to be the foundation on which the American slasher genre would emerge almost a decade later — as well as Bava’s most violent film.
