Movie Review: "A Bay of Blood" (1971)

Image Source
Movie: "A Bay of Blood"
Director: Mario Bava
Year: 1971
Rating: R
Running Time: 1 hour, 24 minutes

A wealthy heiress who refuses to sell her land to real estate developers is murdered by her husband. This starts a chain of murders at the bay she owns.

Before even one word of dialogue is spoken, two people are murdered. Now THAT'S my kind of movie! It is kind of a slasher grindhouse style gorefest, one of those Italian horror movies that has been re-dubbed in English. Poorly. It's sort of a mystery, but not really a "whodunit," but a "who didn't do it" since this movie has a whooooole lot of guilty people in it. The plot is pretty thin, but it suits its purpose enough to drive itself from one murder to the next. It's a low budget, bares bones horror that's not too complicated but still entertaining.

My Rating: --
BigJ's Rating: 7/10
IMDB's Rating: 6.7/10
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 80%
Do we recommend this movie: Sure, why not?
