mario bava

there's a pretty great documentary on IFC this week on italian horror maestro mario bava; a man who i knew nothing about until i watched the superb special on bravo these past coupla days - 'the 100 scariest movie moments.' there are some films noted in there that, jesus, just in the 30 second clips they show, build up more tension and have a bigger scare payoff than most feature full-lengths i see nowadays. i gotta see the changeling and the sentinal. holy crow. if any of you dear readers have seen either of these please tell me about em in the comments below. also, if anyone got a chance to see the sadist film saw, i'd like to hear about that one too.

can't say i've seen any mario bava films. although, i've heard his name many a time. i know he's worked with dario argento (one of my favorites) on at least one of his films. his son, lamberto, worked with argento on some films as well. you need to see suspiria if you haven't already. that film is a masterpiece. the soundtrack by the italian prog rock band goblin is enough to creep you out just on its own.

i think matt has seen saw. might want to ask him. the trailer looks really good, but i've read tons of reviews that say it is horrible. i think i will wait and rent it.

The Changeling is very good. Haven't seen The Sentinel. I'm looking over the Bravo list. Black Christmas is awesome (I'm presuming it's the Bob Clark one they picked). As far as Bava goes, I think he's really uneven. Black Sunday is pretty good (not that scary, but has cool parts). Planet of the Vampires is totally boring and sucks. Danger: Diabolik is one of the most fun movies ever made (but ain't available on dvd).

The Changeling is scary for the low-budget 70's. George C. Scott can play that suspense card too. There are some scenes where you know exactly what's coming, and you are scared as crap anyway! That's what I'm talkin' about.
