User Reviews

 
Excellent Mario Bava's shocker.
17 September 2003 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Mario Bava's "Schock"(1977)is an exceptional film.It's not only suspenseful and stylish,but its impact on the later Italian horror movies is clearly visible.The acting is pretty good-Daria Nicolodi gives a sympathetic performance as Dora Baldini,a victimized woman on the brink of lunacy.Some of the nightmares that Dora has are sort of psychedelically strange and disturbing.The film was co-written by Mario's son Lamberto,who also served as the assistant director."Schock" isn't as good as "Bay of Blood" or "Blood and Black Lace",but it provides some genuine chills.Highly recommended.
