A Carpathian village is haunted by the ghost of a murderous little girl, prompting a coroner and a medical student to uncover her secrets while a witch attempts to protect the villagers.

Daphne picked this Bava classic and she loves Kill, Baby… Kill! right from the opening scene in which a distraught woman impales herself on wrought iron fence spikes. From the costumes to the atmospheric village, she’s all in. Chad was never drawn in by the title or the poster, but now that he’s seen Kill, Baby… Kill!, he thinks it’s a beautiful movie. It has that Bava look and feel with almost a Hammer, gothic sensibility. Jeff’s first thought is, “Not another Italian horror movie with a creepy kid,” but now, Kill, Baby… Kill! is one of his favorite horror movies. He loves everything about it – story, cinematography, acting, set design – and it’s scary as well.

In a strange marketing ploy, Kill, Baby… Kill! was given a new title, paired with two other films, and the resulting retitled trio was billed as Orgy of the Living Dead.” As promised on the podcast, here is a link to the “Orgy of the Living Dead” Trailer. 

The Classic Era Grue Crew strongly recommends Kill, Baby… Kill! At the time of this writing, the film is available to stream on the Classic Horror Movie Channel, Wicked Horror TV, Shudder, and Kanopy, and on physical media as a Kino Classics Blu-ray.

This is the ninth Mario Bava film covered by Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror Grue Crews. You can check them out here:

While he now qualifies as an old fart, he strives to be an Old Boy. Paraphrasing Robert Bloch, he has the heart of a small boy. He keeps it in a jar on his desk.
