A fascinating entry point into Bava's filmography, Kill, Baby... Kill! exudes all the visual thrills of the director at his extravagant, atmospheric best.

An undeniably beautiful entry in [Bava's] canon, marking perhaps one of his most stunning visual achievements, turning classical horror into something akin to poetry.

It's utterly convincing, a reminder that cinema had all the tools it needed before computers.

A perfect Gothic horror film, and a kind of sign-off from the "classic" phase of the genre.

a story of collective guilt & implacable vindictiveness, as the past keeps returning to prey vampirically on the present - but also a story that travels through darkness to the dawn, ushering in a new epoch, exorcised of all diabolical vestiges.

Restored version of Italian horror icon Mario Bava's eerie 1966 ghost story burnishes the elegant use of color often blurred on DVDs and older prints.

Kill, Baby... Kill! is more than just a pretty picture. At its heart is a wickedly cool Euro-horror story that's sure to stick with you long after the lights have been turned out for the night.

This conflict between modern medicine and superstition lends Kill, Baby...Kill! a moral volatility that's noticeably absent from other films in Bava's canon.
