Blood and Black Lace

Blood and Black Lace

“I’d like to believe that color cinematography was developed just so this movie could exist. Director Mario Bava ensures that every frame is a lurid, trippy stunner. I don’t care if it’s dubbed in English or Italian, either way it’s an absolute favorite.” —Curtis T, Production

Directed by Mario Bava • 1964 • Italy, West Germany
Starring Cameron Mitchell, Eva Bartok, Thomas Reiner

Director Mario Bava cemented his reputation as the master of Italian horror with this deliriously stylized thriller, one of the foundational works of the giallo genre and an influence on directors ranging from Dario Argento to Martin Scorsese. The Christian Haute Couture fashion house is a home to models . . . and backstabbing . . . and blackmail . . . and drug deals . . . and, now, murder. The saga begins when a beautiful model is brutally killed, and her boyfriend, a known addict supplying her drugs, is suspected of the crime. But is he guilty, or is someone waiting in the shadows setting him up?
