A Blade In the Dark (1983)

 

 A Blade In the Dark (1983) Heavily indebted to Psycho, this Gallo abandons logic to flow through dreamscapes of horror, imagery that evokes the full trauma of gender, culminating in an unexpected knifeblade every time a woman appears. Originally intended for Italian television, its gore proved so disturbing that it was released as a feature film. Lamberto Bava directs Andrea Occhipinti as Bruno, who has rented a retreat in order to compose the soundtrack for a horror movie. Of course, that horror movie is the one we are watching. What makes this film notable, however, is the fact that Michele Soavi, hired to be Assistant Director, found himself suddenly cast as the villain.

Perspicacious serrated fronds

Shiver, dripping blood

In B-flat repetitions.

 

A retractable blade

Flashes waves of sunlight

Across the swimming pool.

Has caught in wire mesh

As if wrenched from a scream.

Music is everywhere now,
