A BAY OF BLOOD (bloodbath; twitch of the death nerve; last house on the left 2; reazione a catena; antefatto- ecologia del delitto) (1971 ITALY) D/W: MARIO BAVA W: CARLO REALI/FILIPPO OTTONI/DARDANO SACCHETTI/FRANCO BARBERI W/P: "JOSEPH McLEE" (GIUSEPPE ZACCARIELLO)
A bunch of teens at a holiday resort get killed off one-by-one in this, the original and still the best body count slasher flick with gory deaths as set-pieces. The ever-stylish Bava is at his best here, and the ending is great. I had the pleasure of seeing this on the big screen, and i recommend that you forget all about Camp Crystal Lake and do so too if you get the chance. With Claudine Auger, Luigi Pistilli, Leopoldo Trieste, Laura Betti and Isa Miranda.
