“If only one-hundredth of the films it influenced had one-hundredth of its perfection, the horror film would be a much less reputable and more wonderful thing than has been the case.” — Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy

The British black comedy KIND HEARTS AND CORONETS was reputedly the inspiration for the humor-tinged A BAY OF BLOOD, which adopts a similar theme of murder-for-greed. In terms of artful murder methods, this is one of Bava’s most lavish and imaginative productions. In terms of body count, it’s a story on the scale of a Shakespearean tragedy, but the carnage is more likely to amuse than repulse. The estate of an invalid countess is coveted by ruthless relatives and hangers-on, who scheme to kill each other off. Splendidly satirical and bursting with color, this film features Bava’s excess at its best. In English. DCP digital.
