A killer stalks a composer staying at a posh Tuscany villa while writing the score to a horror film which has an incriminating clue to the killer's identity.
Director Lamberto Bava worked as an assistant to Dario Argento on the film Tenebre two years before making A Blade in the Dark. As many critics noted, Tenebre was an influence on this film in terms of both plot and visual style.
Near the beginning of the movie the blade is seen cutting an adult magazine across the woman's right breast (from our point of view). Shortly afterwards when the composer examines the mysterious cuts in the magazine the slice marks appear across the left breast (from our point of view).
