Mario Bava DVD's

In my on-going obcession with all thing's, Bava.

I thought I'd mention that Anchor Bay just re-released the DVD of Rabid Dogs, now under the title Kidnapped.

Anchor Bay also put out a box set of five of Bava's films. Black Sunday, Black Sabbath, The Girl Who Knew Too Much, Knives of the Avenger, Kill...Baby, Kill.

I've never seen Girl Who Knew Too Much, Knives, or Kill, Baby, Kill, so I might pick that up just to check out those films.

Anyway, this new print of Rabid Dogs is pretty good, with a new title sequence. I haven't bothered to check out the other version of this film titled Kidnapped, I understand that Lamberto Bava supervised this new cut with some trimmed scenes, added scenes and new music.

Bava's last three films (Lisa and The Devil, Rabid Dogs, and Shock seemed pretty disurbing, as far as touching on taboo idea's. He certainly seemed to have a very fatalistic point of view towards human nature. Personally, the verdict is out for me which era I liked better of Bava's films, I tend to feel his films from the sixties are better. IMHO.

Rabid Dogs is the kind of film I could see QT making

Anyway, it's a good DVD, check it out. Happy to find Bava is getting more respect now on the DVD market.

Blood And Black Lace/ Kill Baby Kill/ Whip And The Body

Black Sunday / Black Sabbath / The Girl Who Knew Too Much / Kill Baby Kill / Knives of the Avenger

Kidnapped (A.K.A. Rabid Dogs)

The prices are all pretty reasonable too, the newer collection from April 3rd retails for about $45, but Amazon's got a used listing for $29.99

Kidnapped (Rabid) is also pretty reasonable at $17.99

I like Mario too, thanks for the tip on the collection!

Thanks Biscuit for the comments.

So I picked up the Mario Bava Volume 1 box set. You get a pretty good bang for your buck.

Everything on the Black Sunday disc I've seen before. Yet you do get an informative Tim Lucas commentary on Black Sabbath. As well as a decent profile on Mark Damon.

I enjoyed The Girl Who Knew Too Much and you get some decent extras on that disc. Another good commentary and a piece with John Saxon being interviewed about The Girl.

You don't get many extras on Knives of the Avenger, but I enjoyed the film as well as it's Viking take on the western, Shane.

Other than some kinda lame American TV promo's that are grindhouse flavored tripple bills, there's not many extras on Kill, Baby...Kill.

Yet the transfers on all of these films are beautifully done. Another recommend. I hope that Anchor Bay's Bava box Volume 2 has some other interesting gems.

:)

Hello Again,

I see Anchor Bay is putting out a volume two of their Bava collection. Which includes Baron Blood, Lisa and the Devil / House of Exorcism, Kidnapped, Bay Of Blood, Four Times That Night, Roy Colt and Winchester Jack, 5 Dolls For an August Moon.

http://www.amazon.com/Bava-Box-Set-Vol-2/dp/B000UVV23S/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/103-1665154-4816623?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1190848881&sr=1-1

Well, I'm pretty happy they're including some films rarely seen, but I'm a little surprised they're not including Blood and Black Lace or Planet of the Vampires, considering I have never seen any extras of any edition of Vampires that includes commentary, interviews, promo stills, or any 'making of' segments.

They already released Kidnapped (Rabid Dogs) as a separate set, so I don't know why Anchor Bay would add it in.

I remember seeing some spicy sex scenes outtakes from Lisa and the Devil, and so I wonder if that footage will be included in the extras.

Anyway, this might be worth the price, depending on what extras are added into this set. We'll see.[/i]

Planet of the Vampires is must-see Bava.
There's been a great deal of conjecture that Ridley Scott ( or his writers ) were heavily influenced by POTV when Alien was made.
It's an interesting premise, and not without merit, but the film itself is the thing.
Very moody & stylish.
Check it out.

Good call Vicar,

There's a pretty good documentary about Bava.

Mario Bava: Maestro of the Macabe brings up the comparisons between Ridley Scott's Alien and Vampires. It also mentions the fact that Sean S. Cunningham's Friday The 13th borrows a lot from Bay Of Blood.

http://www.amazon.com/Mario-Bava-Maestro-Macabre/dp/B00005OCL3/ref=sr_1_5/103-1665154-4816623?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1190867678&sr=1-5

Scott / Dennis O'Brien and Cunningham would be hard pressed to claim %100 originality on Alien or FT13, me thinks.

Have a good one.
