Double Feature with EVIL EYE (7:00)

BLOOD AND BLACK LACE (1964) dir Mario Bava w/Cameron Mitchell, Eva Bartok, Thomas Reiner [84 min; DCP]
Mario Bava’s seminal giallo touchstone, about a murder spree in a high-end fashion house was profoundly influential on Argento, Craven, Tarantino and Scorsese. Between its excessive use of color, hothouse tone and pioneering proto-slasher set pieces, BLOOD AND BLACK LACE is an ultimate embodiment of the giallo genre. – American Genre Film Archive

“Part painting, part tango, the picture is meticulous depravity and rapture, from its Mod-fab tableaux vivant opening credits through to its escalating abomination.” – Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
