KILL, BABY… KILL (1967) dir Mario Bava w/Giacomo Rossi Stuart, Erika Blanc, Fabienne Dali, Piero Lulli [83 min; DCP; Italian with English subtitles]
In a fin-de-siècle Transylvanian village, a doctor arrives to investigate a young maid’s mysterious death, only to learn the legend of a deceased girl whose ball-bouncing ghost may be driving the locals to suicide… With its hallucinatory colors and sinister moods, this is the pinnacle of Gothic Euro-horror, an influence on Scorsese, Lynch, Fellini, Argento, del Toro, and countless others. – Quad Cinema

“This conflict between modern medicine and superstition lends Kill, Baby…Kill! a moral volatility that’s noticeably absent from other films in Bava’s canon.” – Ed Gonzalez, Total Film
