“Luchino Visconti purportedly led a standing ovation of the film at its Italian premiere…often plays out like Bava’s answer to Visconti’s equally artificial, sensuous, and deliriously campy SENSO.” — Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine

The laughter of a spectral child freezes a Transylvanian village with fear, as the eerie, mirthless sound foretells yet another horrible death of one of their own. The apparent suicide of a servant brings the no-nonsense Dr. Eswe to the scene for the autopsy, but all the tools of science provide no insight into the mystery of a little girl’s vengeance from beyond the grave. With lighting reminiscent of the rainbow colors of Jello, baroque art direction, and an imagination that plumbs the surreal, Bava transforms the horror genre into his own carnival of supernatural delights. The bizarre finale has a hallucinogenic, down-the-rabbit-hole quality that both evokes and transcends the spirit of the '60s. In Italian with English subtitles. DCP digital.
