Bay of Blood is pure Bava with interesting camera work and impeccably controlled lighting. This cast includes everything from a group of "carefree kids" spending a weekend of debauchery to a "crazy" tarot reading woman who steals just about every scene she's in. Melodrama abounds! It's the kind of thing you expect with Italian horror.
While Bava is not for everyone, one has to admire his passion for filmmaking and his ability to create an atmosphere that's slightly hyper-real and a bit "off." While this is not my favorite Bava film, it is definitely well made and is well worth your time.
RATING: Very Good.
