Schock * Mario Bava (1977)

Posted in horror, thriller and tagged on by .

In the 35 years that have passed since this film came out, countless horrors with similar themes have been made, so the story of “Schock” is clear from the first scene. Dora Baldini (played by the beautiful Daria Nicolodi) moves back to the house where she used to live with her late husband, this time with her new husband and little son. Naturally the house has to be haunted or the boy. I am not going to tell you which is the scenario, but it is needless to say that Dora first is uncomfortable in the new and old environment and the discomfort leads to horror. Bava managed to make a good, pressing atmosphere and actually the predictability adds to the sensation. “Schocker” is not overly bloody, has a few interesting scenes and, like I said, a good atmosphere. A classic worth watching.
