Synopsis

Macabre
The feature directorial debut of Lamberto Bava (son of Italian horror legend Mario Bava), tells the twisted tale of a New Orleans wife whose fragile sanity is about to be shattered. Jane (Bernice Stegers) is swept up in a torrid affair when she leaves her two children home alone as she dashes out to rendezvous with her lover Fred on the other side of town. When Jane's bitterly jealous daughter Lucy (Veronica Zinny) uncovers evidence of her mother's infidelity, she decides to punish the misdeed by drowning her brother in a bathtub. Upon receiving news of the incident, Jane races home and gets into an automobile accident that proves the end of her lover, and leads to an extended stint in a local asylum for the devastated mother. Released a year later, Jane rents an apartment owned by blind landlord Robert. But why is Jane's freezer always locked up so tight, and just what emotional sway does the malevolent Lucy hold over her psychologically vulnerable mother? As the mystery deepens, it soon becomes apparent that Jane has lost all touch with reality, and that even in death she's not willing to let go of her lover. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Shock
This effective occult horror film was the final feature directed by the legendary Mario Bava. Daria Nicolodi gives her most convincing performance as Dora, who moves back into her old house with a new husband, Bruno (John Steiner), after spending time in a mental hospital. Strange things start happening, mostly involving her young son Marco (David Colin, Jr.), who seems to be possessed by the ghost of Dora's first husband Carlo, a heroin addict who committed suicide. Dora suffers from vivid hallucinations, and it soon becomes obvious that she is going completely mad, and that Bruno knows more about Carlo's death than he lets on. Bava stages the hallucination scenes with his trademark visual flair, and his son Lamberto Bava's script, co-written with Francesco Barbieri, Paola Brigenti and Dardano Sacchetti, handles Dora's shifting sense of reality with great skill and a subtlety rare for Italian horror films of the period. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

A Blade in the Dark
This horror-thriller from director Lamberto Bava stars Andrea Occhipinti as Bruno, a composer who becomes involved in a frightening series of murders while staying at an isolated villa. The story turns on a scene in the horror film Bruno is scoring: a young child, taunted by cruel bullies, descends into a dark cellar after a bouncing tennis ball. The kids hear a scream and the ball bounces up to them, leaving bloody tracks on the wall. Pretty Sandra, Bruno's director, explains that her inspiration was the childhood of Linda, the villa's previous tenant, but there is something far more sinister going on. Anyone who has seen Psycho probably has a good idea what that "something" is, but the plot is really incidental. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi
