Watched this again a few nights ago. Certainly a fantastic film. Pacing is PERFECT.

Officaly watched my first Bava film last night, Danger: Diabolik! was an interesting ride. Definitely a little bit odd, but extremely entertaining and lavish; and by the end of the film i was almost totally absorbed. Worth a watch but definitely not a horror film, full of hilarious lines and awesome visuals.

I doubt i'll be able to forget about that Diabolik laughter any time soon.

Expect to see awesome visuals in any of Bava's films. There are srill more I need to see, but so far Black Sunday and Kill, Baby...Kill! are my favorites.

Lisa and the Devil isn't all that good, but The Girl Who Knew Too Much is great!

Twitch of the death nerve" although it was called "Bay of Blood" and that was a while back. I have to Netflix some of these titles.

watched "Blood And Black Lace" yesterday for the first time and I'm still astonished of how good this film is

I've only seen the following from Mario Bava:

1. Blood and Black Lace (1964)
2. Black Sunday (1960)
3. The Girl Who Knew Too Much (1963)
4. Kill Baby, Kill! (1966)
5. Planet of the Vampires (1965)


And I liked all of those to certain degree, with Blood and Black Lace being the best of the bunch. He truly has style, and I don't mind that he usually sacrifices acting and plot for unique and creepy atmosphere and stunning visuals.

I love Mario Bava tough to choose a fave but I went with Kill Baby Kill it was tough with Blood and Black Lace, Black Sunday and A Bay Of Blood close behind
