Dario Argento. When I’ve started to pay attention to movies more closely, to learn about actors, directors, producers, what have you, I’ve read (and to this read I am reading) a lot of press and web stuff – reviews, monographies, biographies…you know, the usual stuff and that’s how I’ve learnt a lot about movies I’d normally don’t watch or don’t have desire to pick up. And, on the other side, learnt a thing or two about stuff I love and prefer.
OK. Yesterday was the day I sat down and watched A Bay Of Blood (a.k.a. Ecologia del delitto, a.k.a. Reazione a catena), the Mario Bava’s movie hailed as a proto-slasher and by many regarded as a cult classic, and one of the former Video Nasties of the 1980s era.
Sometimes it’s nice to not rush things and just enjoy them in the right moment. I had the 3-disc version of this movie (containing the original Italian version and also AIP American version under the title “Evil Eye”) from Arrow Video for some time now, but I haven’t had the opportunity to watch it.
