Baron Blood (Includes DVD)
  • Description

    One of horror giant Mario Bava's biggest hits, Baron Blood returns to the all-stops-out Gothic atmosphere and the central theme of a witch's curse that fuelled his breakthrough film Black Sunday twelve years earlier.

    This time, the curse was placed on Baron Otto von Kleist, Austria's legendarily murderous 'Baron Blood', whose corpse is inadvertently revived when an ancient incantation is read out as a joke by a descendant and his girlfriend. Naturally, the Baron decides to carry on where he originally left off, with the help of an entire vault of elaborate torture devices.

    Joseph Cotten (Citizen Kane, The Third Man) has a whale of a time as the deceptively charming Baron, and is given sterling support from Elke Sommer (Lisa and the Devil), who is chased through fog-shrouded alleyways in one of Bava's most memorably atmospheric set-pieces.

    Special Features:

    • High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentation of three versions of the film: Gli orrori del castello di Norimberga with Italian opening and closing titles and Baron Blood with English opening and closing titles and the European English export version audio, and for the first time on home video, the AIP version with alternate score by Les Baxter
    • Three audio versions: Optional Italian, European English and AIP English re-dub and re-score

Baron Blood - Product Review

It's a Bava film! It's got Elke Sommer with no less than 12 changes of clothing (including hats)! It's got a character called Fritz! It was shot in an Austrian castle named Burg Kreuzenstein! And, you get 3 versions of the film with 2 different scores across a total of 3 discs (1 x Blu-ray and 2 x DVD). Not only a fantastic film filled with bad acting and more Kensington Gore than you can shake a disfigured, black-cloaked Baron at, it's got a 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. But don't let that fool you. It's a wonderful Bava film with all his trademark camera angles, colour palettes, and with 3 versions of the film, it's a definite "value for money" purchase from Arrow Films. Arrived on time, great price, fantastic packaging, and a another great zavvi blu-ray deal to add to my collection. 5 Stars easily!

Baron Blood

Good edition the movie is great too.

Gruesome

This is one of those obscure low-budget Italian Horror's, so I was surprised when it made its debut to blu-ray, thanks to Arrow. A lot of damage has been removed from the video, but not all. Don't expect to see astounding video, but this is as best as it will get, and I am very happy with it. All 3 cuts are presented here; the Original Version, European Export Version and the American International Pictures version which has a different score and is dubbed. The DVD versions of each are in this set too. Not forgetting a load of special features to boot.

Mario Bava - The legend!

I watched this movie at least dozen times but on VHS. For the first time ever, thnx to Arrow, I can enjoy this movie in glorious HD! Great job Arrow, keep 'em coming ;)
