  • USA Kill, Baby... Kill! (more)


In the early 20th century, pathologist Dr Paul Eswai (Giacomo Rossi-Stuart, The Last Man on Earth) is summoned to a remote Carpathian village to perform an autopsy on a woman who died under mysterious circumstances. With the locals convinced they are being haunted by the spirit of a young girl who died years ago, can the steadfastly rational doctor find a logical explanation to the strange goings-on… or will his rational beliefs be destroyed by the dark secret that lies within the crumbling walls of the ancient Villa Graps?

English Kill, Baby... Kill! is better horror than anything from Corman. Bava’s film has an interesting blend of English and American gothic with the atmosphere of late 70s Giallo, and I have to say that I liked it. The exteriors are very good, I actually don’t know whether it was shot in a soundstage or on location in a real Italian village, either way, it never feels artificial, as Corman films. I’m aware that this is very shallow on my part, but I can’t help it, those painted backgrounds simply bother me. Kill, Baby... Kill! has none of it and I could feel pleasantly scared at times. Thumbs up, for a moment I considered the highest rating, but the annoying protagonist prevented it. ()
