This is one of Bava's more fully realized films, with its coolly slinking camera movements, rich color schemes and virtuoso murder sequences. The dialogue is not on the level of Tonino Guerra, perhaps, but there's a real intelligence at work behind the camera. Modern horror films owe an incalculable debt--for better or worse--to Bava's masked and gloved killer who targets beautiful, vulnerable women. No less influential is the surreal, atmospheric lighting. A key horror film, and an absolute must-see for anyone interested in the cinema as a self-conscious art form. Compatability problems aside--which only affect a handful of player models anyway--this is a terrific DVD package. First, the transfer is from a German print and it looks sharp, with terrific color considering the age of the film. I noticed all sorts of visual details that escaped me before thanks to the excellent video transfer. Tim Lucas' audio commentary is engaging, as to be expected from the #1 Bava expert. The other extras, including alternate language tracks, trailers and interviews, round out the package nicely. VCI home video put a lot of effort into this DVD and it really paid off. The only thing I didn't like was the look of the subtitles, which is a minor complaint in the face of all the great things this DVD has to offer.
