|This giallo-slasher hybrid is among the best of the films of Mario Bava and certainly a huge influence on Dario Argento.
Beautiful young fashion models are being violently dispatched by a sadistic black-gloved killer. Seems the killer wants to recover a diary left behind by one of his victims. But what secrets could the diary hold, and is there a larger evil at work here? How many must die before the carnage ends?
Gruesome murders, lavish setpieces, striking photography, and Bava's trademark use of color all merge to make Blood & Black Lace a true classic of the genre. The lush atmosphere is spellbinding from beginning to end, there's eye candy galore, and it's all boosted by a great score from Carlo Rustichelli. A must see.
Also known as Six Women for the Murderer.
