Maybe I should take back those compliments I gave Mario Bava in my Black Sabbath post. Outside of maybe a few cool visuals and Daria Niccolodi's naked butt, this one bored the shit out of me. Of course, this was his last film and I don't think his later works are considered to be very good, so maybe I should still give one of his earliest movies a shot. Shock actually felt more Argento-y in tone, with the funkier score and graphic violence and Daria Niccolodi, but like an indifferent, shitty Argento.
Of course, this wasn't terrible like Five Dolls For an August Moon, so I'm still no longer convinced that Bava is the worst director ever. I'm just probably not ever going to become an actual fan of his.
