RATE AND COMMENT

BIOGRAPHY

Began his career by shooting two early short films for Roberto Rossellini, graduating to feature director in 1960. Bava specialized in mindless movies with lots of sweat, low-budget action and garish color. His playful understanding of the cliches he dealt with has earned cult status for many of his genre pieces. Bava's son Lamberto (aka John Old, Jr.) is also a director.
