I'm a big Mario Bava fan, but I'd struggle to rate this film as a masterpiece, especially when compared to his earlier films such as Blood and Black Lace or Black Sabbath. I've probably got two main gripes about the film. Firstly, there just aren't enough stand out scenes in my mind. The best is when Elke Sommer is being chased through the fog filled streets by the Baron. It's very reminiscent of Vincent Price in the House of Wax, and it creates an excellent sense of suspense and fear. The backdrop of the film, set in an actual Austrian castle, adds a great deal of Gothic weight to the proceedings, and Bava uses his surroundings well. But the formulaic story just lets him down. My second, and probably more significant issue is with the use of Joseph Cotton as the Baron. He just feels too much like a lovable uncle, to be effective as the reanimated face of evil incarnate. (He was great in Dr Phibes when he was the victim of the sinister Vincent Price, and indeed, you could easily imagine Vincent Price making a great Baron Blood.) Here he just doesn't cut the satanic mustard in my book.

If, like me, you're a big Bava fan then this film is certainly worth seeing the once. However it's not one that I'll find myself reaching for again very soon.

Fans of gothic euro-horror (I am a card-carrying member of this fraternity) have regarded the great Mario Bava as an unsung legend for decades, and with this fantastic Arrow release he finally gets his due. This is - hands down - the best this film has ever looked (unless you were the cameraman looking through the viewfinder during principal photography, with Bava approving the shot framing and smoking his cigarettes behind you as you changed f-stops).
I suffered through a cropped, washed-out VHS release of this colourful horror opus back in the day (l still enjoyed the film by the way, thank you Roadshow Home Video), but I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to see this international classic restored to its original glory. Legendary director Dario Argento took some of his cues from Bava (Bava created special effects for Argento's "Inferno"), and I for one will remain permanently indebted to Bava's unique horror film vision (and wonderful personality - if you can find a photograph of this man not comically hamming it up or smiling wonderfully, please send me a copy).
This is a beautiful, collectible and comprehensive release (there are three [yes three!] versions of the film included here, (including the American AIP release with the alternative musical score for completists), and a very rewarding purchase for fans of atmospheric Italian horror from days gone by.

Highly recommended.

If Baron Blood did not have Bava's name attached to it, I would imagine that the film would be universally forgotten. It is quite a struggle to stay focused, I was struggling after 15 minutes. The plot is cold, yes cold. The film is ultra slow, the dialogue is seeringly close to something that a kid would come up with, and the acting is awful. However the film has been dubbed in places and I know that in original language the acting suddenly becomes all the better for it.

Joseph Cotton a fine actor in his day is underwhelming here. There are no frights and no gore. Notice how at the beginning the scene is played out twice, TWICE!

I'm a huge horror fan and that includes Italian cinema. Bava was one of the best, but in all honesty this is a dull and boring film for his standards. The only bright spark being the use of lightning used in some scenes.

I am a huge fan of Mario Bava but this is a hard watch. Its slow and has very little to keep you interested especially when compared to his other works. There are some fantastic atmospheric scenes like the chase scene through the fog, but its not enough to change this film from being what it is. If Bava was a musician this would be a forgotten album track, nice to visit from time to time but not something you would go out of your way to constantly listen to. The saving grace is the packaging, with stand out extras, 3 versions of the film and an amazing restoration job done. Baron Blood is worth the money especially if like me you collect Italian horror cinema or are a fan of Bavas.
