“What interests me is the fear experienced by a person alone in their room. It is then that everything around him starts to move menacingly around, and we realize that the only true ‘monsters’ are the ones we carry in ourselves.” – Mario Bava
Our “Mario Bava Mondays” invite you into the beautiful horror worlds created by the “Master of the Macabre” each Monday throughout October: THE WHIP AND THE BODY; BAY OF BLOOD; KILL BABY, KILL; FIVE DOLLS FOR AN AUGUST MOON; BLACK SABBATH. Featuring all new 2K restorations!
Mario Bava films are magical experiences, touching and haunting, fun and terrifying. The grandfather of Italian horror cinema who ignited the giallo movement and the subsequent American Slasher films, his innovative cinematography and directorial style have influenced generations of filmmakers as seen in Martin Scorsese’s Cape Fear (1991), Sean Cunningham’s Friday the 13th (1980), Ridley Scott’s Alien (1979), and Roman Coppola’s CQ (2001). The films of Mario Bava are touching and haunting, fun and terrifying, and not to be missed.
