It’s Mario Bava Night here at 32 Days of Halloween and we’re watching Twitch of the Death Nerve (although it’s shown here under the alternate title of A Bay of Blood). The film that launched a thousand slasher flicks–watch the murders in this film and you’ll get the funny feeling you’ve seen them before. That’s right: the old “Spear Through the Copulating Couple” (not a euphemism) trick started here. It apparently was way ahead of its time because although it flopped and flopped again, it’s still got better makeup and dialogue than some of its progeny today. Go figure.
