A pure and simple, viking-themed, western. [Full review in Spanish]

Has some appeal in its earnest story.

Grand Viking opera

The colossally incompetent vibe will undoubtedly turn off all but the most ardent Bava follower...

Audience Reviews for Viking Massacre (I coltelli del vendicatore)


Very minor Mario Bava. It's basically an old-fashioned western revenge plot re-imagined as a Viking adventure. It's remarkable only for the unusual relationships of the central characters; a Hollywood movie of the same era would certainly not expect us to sympathise with a rapist!

I wasn't blown away by Knives of the Avenger but it picked up for the last act. A majority of the action took place outdoors, which doesn't lend well for Bava's signature lighting. Still, it's a lot better than Bava's later work, but don't knock yourself out looking for an out of print copy. Although, the flashback scene seemed to be the basis for half of Terry Gilliam's work.
