HATCHET FOR THE HONEYMOON
IL ROSSO SEGNO DELLA FOLLIA
1970, Kino Lorber, 88 min, Italy/Spain, Dir: Mario Bava
Wealthy psychopath and wedding dress designer Stephen Forsyth is perfectly aware that he is crazy, and he skillfully covers his tracks as he stalks and murders potential brides before their nuptials. He’s also tormented by a childhood secret that he can’t quite remember, an overwhelming force that sucks him ever deeper into the maw of madness. His own bitter wife (Laura Betti) finally pushes him over the edge to where he can no longer distinguish between fantasy and reality. The deliciously macabre script was co-written by Spanish genre specialist Santiago Moncada (A BELL FROM HELL) and an uncredited Bava. “… one of Mario Bava's … most playful thrillers, a demented black comedy that pokes fun at the murderous psychos which were littering the European cinema screens during the late '60s … a beautifully filmed drawing room murder tale which unexpectedly leaps midstream into a bizarre and wholly original ghost story.” – Mondo-Digital.com.

FIVE DOLLS FOR AN AUGUST MOON
5 BAMBOLE PER LA LUNA D’AGOSTO
1970, Kino Lorber, 88 min, Italy, Dir: Mario Bava
A clique of the idle rich gathered for a swinging weekend at an island beach house is murdered one by one in this ultra-groovy, Pop Art giallo. Soaked with a glamorously sleazy ambience and an absurd lounge music score by the great Piero Umiliani, FIVE DOLLS emerges as one of the pinnacles of 1970s Eurotrash cinema! Supremely entertaining, with more of Bava’s unique imagery that seems poised on that intangible borderline between sensual dream and inescapable nightmare. With William Berger, Edwige Fenech and Ira von Furstenberg.
