A Bay Of Blood
Mario Bava’s Giallo classic A Bay of Blood is widely considered as the blueprint for the Slasher genre. When a rich countess is murdered, members of her family and the surrounding community engage in a killing spree, each with his own secret agenda. In addition to the string of creative murders, a group of hippies arrive on the premises, engage in promiscuous sex and find themselves dying one by one. The pile of bloodied corpses gets higher and higher as one by one the mangled victims are hung, speared, stabbed and macheted.
