Double Feature with BLOOD & BLACK LACE (5:00 & 9:00)

EVIL EYE (1963) dir Mario Bava w/Letícia Román, John Saxon [86 min; DCP; English dub]
In this deliciously deranged mystery, pulp fiction enthusiast Román becomes entangled in a game of cat-and-mouse with a killer after she witnesses him committing murder. Finding drama in every shadow, this is Bava at his most Hitchcockian – with voyeurism to spare and a characteristically supernatural twist. – Quad Cinema

“Bava, who’d once shot films for Roberto Rossellini and Raoul Walsh, used black and white for the last time on this project, and with its mastery of the noir vocabulary it helped establish the giallo.” – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
