Review

A giallo blood-opera, which features some of the most gruelling sequences in the genres vast canon, A BLADE IN THE DARK holes up a talented composer in a spacious Tuscany retreat. Unfortunately, a maniac is prowling the immediate environment and no one, incuding our heroic musician, is safe from this hack-happy psychopath's collection of dangerously sharp weapons. Co-starring the legendary Michele Soavi (later the director of STAGEFRIGHT and THE CHURCH) and written by the equally iconic twosome of Dardano Sacchetti and Elisa Briganti (ZOMBIE FLESH-EATERS/ THE BEYOND), A BLADE IN THE DARK is one of the finest gore-epics from the halcyon days of Italian horror madness.
