User Reviews

A masterpiece in imagery
8 February 1999 | by (NC) – See all my reviews

Mario Bava was above any star he could ever put into a film for he was the star of the film behind the camera. With the possible exception of Barbara Steele in Black Sunday, Bava's films are noted mostly for Bava's direction and Baron Blood is no exception. The acting in the film is competent, but what makes this a great horror film is the visual landscapes Bava paints for us, whether it is a sadistic caped killer rampaging the tiny streets of a dark European night filled with fog or the stately grandeur of the animated dead within the confines of the castle, Bava is an artist using colours like a Rembrandt or Picasso. Baron Blood is a gruesome film filled with genuine terror and it will scare because it is scary in both content and with its heavy mood looming throughout.
