Baron Blood

  • USA Baron Blood (more)


One of horror giant Mario Bava's biggest hits, Baron Blood returns to the all-stops-out Gothic atmosphere and the central theme of a witch's curse that fuelled his breakthrough film Black Sunday. This time, the curse was placed on Baron Otto von Kleist (Joseph Cotten), Austria's legendarily murderous Baron Blood, whose corpse is inadvertently revived when an ancient incantation is read out as a joke by a descendant and his girlfriend. Naturally, the Baron decides to carry on where he originally left off, with the help of an entire vault of elaborate torture devices. (Arrow Films)

English The more I watch old Italian horror, the more I like it. In Baron Blood  I was even able to overlook the fact that young Peter returning to his native Austria is to blame for all his troubles. He’s an idiot that wants to mess with an ancient curse and thinks that a possible clash with a bloodthirsty undead sadist is a interesting experience. All the scenes with the ugly resurrected baron are very good and atmospheric, one even caused a hint of fear, but I had a little problem with everything else around it. For the standards of old Italian films, the performances are at least very decent, so 7/10 with a clear conscience. ()

English Baron Blood is a respectable horror production with a stellar cast and nice camerawork. Though it looks very good, however, it is unfortunately not scary and lacks the inner strength that similar horror movies about haunted castles and mutilated castellans usually possess. ()
