Charlie Largent was knocked out by the terrific transfer on this dazzling restoration of Mario Bava’s most psychologically-sound terror show — the story of Christopher Lee tormenting the dark beauty Daliah Lavi rises a step or two in Il Maestro’s filmography of gothic greatness. We don’t know what to look at — the compelling, haunted Ms. Lavi, or the delicate web of colors that Bava drowns her in. Now in release for our domestic Region A. On Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
