Considered by many (including Martin Scorsese) to be Mario Bava's best film, Kill, Baby, Kill (1966) is a visually gorgeous, hypnotic, Gothic/psychological ghost story, with tons of atmosphere and style. As with most of Bava's work, the story doesn't make a hell lot of sense. But you don't watch Bava for his plots, you watch him for his mastery of atmosphere and his ability to create true terror on screen. Highly recommended.
