In September, ARROW are proud to present the newly restored Blood and Black Lace from the original camera negative and in its original uncut form. This new release allows fans to see it afresh and offers newcomers the ideal introduction to a major piece of cult filmmaking from filmmaker Mario Bava – make sure you don’t miss it on ARROW in September.
The Christian Haute Couture fashion house is a home to models… and backstabbing… and blackmail… and drug deals… and MURDER. Having established a template for the giallo with The Girl Who Knew Too Much, Mario Bava set about cementing its rules with Blood and Black Lace. In doing so, he created one of the most influential films ever made – an Italian classic that would spearhead the giallo genre, provide a prototype for the slasher movie, and have a huge effect on filmmakers as diverse as Dario Argento and Martin Scorsese.
Blood and Black Lace debuts on ARROW from 25th September.
