Dr. Eswai is called by Inspector Kruger to a small village to perform an autopsy on a woman who has died under suspicious circumstances. Despite help from Ruth, the village witch, Kruger is killed and it is revealed that the dead woman, as well as other villagers, have been killed by the ghost of Melissa, a young girl who, fed by the hatred of her grieving mother, Baroness Graps, exacts her revenge on them. Dr. Eswai, along with Monica, a local nurse, are lured into a fateful confrontation at the Villa Graps.Written by

The original Italian main titles of the film list both Giovanna Galletti and Giana Vivaldi. "Giana Vivaldi" is, however, the pseudonym of Galletti herself. See more »

In the United States, an edited version of this film was released as "Curse of the Living Dead" as part of "Living Dead" triple feature aimed at drive-ins. Other releases, including home video, under the title "Kill Baby, Kill" are the more complete version. See more »
the movie starts off wonderfully, a woman gets chased through the grounds of a villa, and jumps to her doom. Then a doctor shows up to do the controversial new medical procedure, the autopsy. The film pace suffers at this point, where the film is introducing characters. Once the film moves into the baroness's mansion, the film runs at full speed. The film gets insanely bizarre, with wonderful creepy imagery, such as graps' ghostly daughter, the repeating room, and the disturbing portrait of the daughter with a skull. The movie is gloomy, and downbeat, but the pace is wonderful at this point. This is one of the best movies bava made.
