Visually very impressive - colour drips from the screen, and the camerawork is terrific. The plot is slight (and slightly ludicrous), and perhaps a bit predictable; this may not have been the case back in the day, of course. That said, the pacing is good and there is enough tension and interest to keep you involved throughout. Its influence on the giallo and slasher genres is pretty clear. I've yet to see a Bava film I didn't enjoy to some degree. Worth checking out.

(Viewed on May 15 2015): Blood and Black Lace wasn't the first giallo, but it set the standard, laying the foundation for others to follow. It's style over substance--the plot is a passable who done it about a masked killer killing beautiful models--but the use of colour is bold and dreamlike, and the tracking shots prowl across opulent floors with extreme menace. While Bava lacked Argento's neuroticism, his style was infinitely more elegant, so the ropey acting can be easily overlooked.

Lush and richly styled film, featuring wonderful mise-en-scene, lighting and camera-work. The story is as formulaic as it gets. Even though Bava can be credited largely with cementing the genre's tropes, if you've seen even a couple of giallo films in your time this is best appreciated for it's superficial qualities.

The vivid colors, interestingly cluttered sets, cool camerawork, characters with a wide variety of weaknesses; it all adds up to one of the most (visually) entertaining giallos I've seen. Everyone lives in a tacky semi-gothic mansion for some reason, so good. The moment someone goes "Oh, it seems victim #1 had a diary in her purse here" and about eight characters all look up nervously in close-ups, I knew I'd be in for a good time.

A film of two halves: bask in sublime sets, luscious lighting and clinical camera work; eventually tire of the somewhat directionless plot. Bava's cinematographic experience certainly shines through in making this a visual treat. It's up there with the best of Hollywood. There are some intriguing and tension-filled scenes but the plot needs to do a bit more than asking us to count slowly from 1 to 6 in search of meaning. Still, above average entertainment levels for a giallo.

A pretty solid giallo, even if it suffers a bit from characters being idiots and dying as a consequence. It's gorgeously shot, which helps a lot for me.

Defining early giallo with outlandish self-contained setting & twisty plot about human perversion. A group of fashion models & their directors are engulfed in a vortex of blood & need as complex character relations form a murderous web of desire, greed & addiction. Music stayed with me & I have to say the visuals are absolutely exquisite. Succeeds almost entirely through stylistic coherence that manages to recontextualise the silly or problematic content. Intriguing tone, atmosphere & pacing.

Visceral, brutal, and genuinely suspenseful. The storyline and performances never really catch up with the vibrant visuals, but as the countless scores of movies inspired by Bava's work would prove, that stuff was never the point.

I really enjoyed this. Although the dialog was cheesy at times (which wasn't helped by the poor audio syncing problems), the movie was beautifully shot. I loved the use of colors and the confident camera movements. The story was pretty decent too. Things really clicked along smoothly without ever hitting a lull (like many Italian horror movies). I was also pleasently surprised at how violent the movie was. I guess I was expecting it to be pretty bloodless considering it was released in 1964.

An elegant, expertly paced and tension filled classic that helped to redefine and further influence the "Slasher" subgenre of horror. One of Bava's best movies, fuled by its jazzy score and utilizing its handful of kills to craft something creepy and entertaining. Even though its as much a mystery film as it is a giallo/horror movie.

Out of the Bava films I've seen, this one is probably the closest to my understanding of what giallo is... kind of a whodunit thriller/slasher flick (often with a killer who wears black gloves) with a sense of grand guignol. I thought all the elements were well done, especially the score, and the movie was a bit of fun. But it didn't really push any of my buttons. My favorite is definitely still Black Sunday.
