Blu-ray Review – Kill, Baby… Kill! (1966)

Kill, Baby… Kill!, 1966.

Directed by Mario Bava.

Starring Giacomo Rossi Stuart, Erika Blanc, Fabienne Dali, and Piero Lulli.


In the early 1900s a remote village is cursed by the ghost of a little girl.

Set in the year 1907 in a remote village deep in the Carpathians the film begins on a dark and gloomy note as a distressed woman appears to throw herself onto some spiked railings and it doesn’t let up as determined doctor Paul Eswai (Giacomo Rossi StuartThe Last Man on Earth) arrives to perform an autopsy.
