Twitch of the Death Nerve

TWITCH OF THE DEATH NERVE AKA. Bay of Blood (1971) 
Starring Claudine Auger, Luigi Pistilli,and Claudio Volonte 
Written and directed by Mario Bava

Right from the start an elderly wheelchair-bound woman owning the lot on the bay is hung. Bava does a wonderful job as director of photography of this and the numerous gory killings that radiate throughout this film. This is a classic story of deceit, murder, revenge, and greed told in a novel way. The plot contains a number of twists that demands the viewers attention. Twitch is a wonderful film to watch in the dark as it contains many quiet moments that play on your nerves. Young couples who have come to the bay for a sex-filled weekend end up in an orgy of the dead. Not only are there more than 3 killers in this film, but the film also possesses a very twisted and surprising ending.

A beautiful well-orchestrated plot with a score of psychedelic guitar riffs.
