"You will never escape my vengeance, or of Satan's! My revenge will seek you out, and with the blood of your sons, and of their sons, and their sons, I will continue to live forever! They will restore me to life you now rob from me!"
This may be disgraceful to say as someone who claims to be a horror fan, but I had never seen anything directed by Mario Bava. I've even been meaning to see this particular one last year, but never got around to it for whatever reason. Better late than never though, I guess. Anyways, this was a good one to start with. It's a very interesting story and it has this chilling atmosphere to it. Barbara Steele delivers a really good performance as well and the technical aspects like the cinematography was just stunning. While it didn't reach that line of greatness for me, I still think it's a classic horror film and I'm now curious to see what Bava's other work is like.
