His beautifully-photographed, artfully-crafted films are the worthy legacy of this talented director, whose work is seen at its very best in this digital age on DVD and Blu-ray, as a triumph of visual design.

Destination Terror tells his story.The son of a special effects pioneer, Mario Bava began his film career as a cinematographer, before moving into directing, almost by chance. Those who worked with him maintained that he regarded himself as first and foremost a cinematographer and only secondly as a director. His horror films include the groundbreaking The Mask of Satan (also known as Black Sunday), the three-part demonthology Black Sabbath, the murderous Blood and Black Lace and the archetypal bodycount thriller A Bay of Blood (or Twitch of the Death Nerve).

He also made Kill, Baby...Kill!, The Whip and the Body, Baron Blood and Lisa and the Devil, which ensure him a place in the pantheon of great horror film directors. But Bava worked successfully in a variety of genres, making the comic book crime caper Danger: Diabolik, the fantastical sword-and-sandal epic Hercules in the Centre of the Earth (also called Hercules in the Haunted World), Viking adventures like Erik the Conqueror, the sci-fi horror Planet of the Vampires and sex comedies, creature features, slapstick farces and spaghetti westerns.

All these films and more are featured in this entertaining guide to the King of Italian Gothic Horror. Also discussed is Bava’s output as a cinematographer and special effects artist, his uncompleted projects and made-for-TV films, and his work’s availability on DVD and videotape, including the many different versions of his films.Film historian Howard Hughes is also the author of Cinema Italiano: The Complete Guide from Classics to Cult, Once Upon a Time in the Italian West: The Filmgoers’ Guide to Spaghetti Westerns and several other titles.
