Topic: A Blade in the Dark(1983)

This is a cool film by director Lamberto Bava(who directed Demons and Demons 2) called A Blade in the Dark and came out around 1983.

The film stars Andrea Occhipinti(from The New York Ripper) and Michele Soavi(director of Stagefright and The Church). The film is about a composer who is hired to compose the music for a new horror film and is setup in a villa in Italy by the movie producers to score the music. Well there is a killer stalking the location and house where the composer is living.

There are some decent kills in it and I love the cool creepy music in it.

Any thoughts?

The best death scene in it to me when when the girl was in the bathroom washing her her and the killer satbs her in the hand with a butcher knife and puts a plastic bag over her head and smashes her face into the sink.
