A Blade In The Dark

La casa con la scala nel buio

1983


At a remote Italian villa, a young composer works on a score for a new horror movie for his female director; but her reluctancy to show him the final reel makes him confused and suspicious. Whilst he works, a series of gruesome killings take place in the grounds by a knife-wielding stalker.
Another one of those low-budget, badly-acted cheesy horror slasher movies from the 80s.

Filmed in Italy with an Italian cast, however the DVD is dubbed into English. Previous versions of the film were heavily censored due to a particularly nasty 'bathroom murder' (which I have included in the stills section), but the 2007 Vipco DVD was released Uncut and in its original anamorphic widescreen presentation.
