Mondo Bava: The Quad celebrates Mario Bava with a 21-film retrospective plus the 50th Anniversary Restoration of KILL, BABY…KILL! 

Mondo Bava   July 14-25

The Quad celebrates the Italian maestro of the macabre with a near-complete retrospective of his work—21 titles with 13 on 35mm—plus the U.S. Premiere of a new 4K restoration of Planet of the Vampires

The series will be preceded by the World Premiere of a new 50th Anniversary restoration of Kill, Baby…Kill!, opening on July 7

Over the course of more than two dozen features, Mario Bava’s distinctive style developed from baroque manipulation of chiaroscuro into spectacular use of color, with his reach extending into spy films, Westerns, sex comedies, and a series of benchmark horror films that laid the groundwork for the giallo and the modern slasher movie. A master stylist with a flair for lurid visuals, Bava’s imprint on contemporary cinema is incalculable: Fellini, Scorsese, Carpenter, Dante, del Toro, Tarantino, Francis Ford Coppola, Dario Argento—all were influenced by the so-called maestro of the macabre.

Mario Bava, 1966, Italy, 83m

In a fin-de-siècle Transylvanian village, a doctor arrives to investigate a young maid’s mysterious death, only to learn the legend of a deceased girl whose ball-bouncing ghost may be driving the locals to suicide… With its hallucinatory colors and sinister moods, this is the pinnacle of gothic Euro-horror and the ideal entry point into one of the great bodies of work in Italian cinema. Restoration courtesy of Kino Lorber.

“Arguably Bava’s greatest achievement.” – Slant
