THE WHIP AND THE BODY
LA FRUSTA E IL CORPO
1963, Kino Lorber, 87 min, Italy/France, Dir: Mario Bava
Demonic aristocrat Christopher Lee returns from the dead to whip his brother’s wife, Daliah Lavi, into a sexual ecstasy in this chilling essay on the ties that bind. Amour fou is taken to its ultimate conclusion in a deliriously romantic study in perverse psychology, widely censored at the time of its release and our choice as the most sumptuous, atmosphere-drenched Gothic chiller from the last 50 years! Carlo Rustichelli provided the melancholic score, rife with haunting love themes for the damned. “Lee once said that this inspired sadomasochistic fantasy is the best of his Italian films … Bava creates an uncannily sensuous atmosphere, especially when he trains his camera on Lavi, obsessively detailing her face as desire, pleasure and pain mingle in a hallucinatory erotic delirium.” – Phil Hardy, Overlook Film Encyclopedia of Horror.

BARON BLOOD
GLI ORRORI DEL CASTELLO DI NORIMBERGA
1972, Kino Lorber, 100 min, Italy/West Germany, Dir: Mario Bava
Lovely Elke Sommer is menaced by Joseph Cotten, a 400-year-old sadistic nobleman bent on restoring his youth in Bava’s gruesome, Grand Guignol Gothic. With Massimo Girotti, Rada Rassimov. “… an almost Technicolor richness that encompasses a wide range of styles, from an enameled hardness that recalls the work of Douglas Sirk to a luminous, painterly vividness based on Bava’s fondness for color gels and his endlessly churning fog machine … ultimately a heady exercise in style, with several brilliantly mounted sequences; a convincing, insistent air of horror; and some unforgettable imagery.” – Gary Morris, Images Movie Journal.
