In a career spanning four decades and encompassing virtually every genre under the sun, Mario Bava inspired multiple generations of filmmakers, from Dario Argento to Martin Scorsese and Tim Burton. Best remembered for his gothic horror movies, for his final feature, Shock, he eschewed the grand guignol excesses of Black Sabbath or Blood and Black Lace for a more intimate portrait of mental breakdown in which true horror comes from within. Dora (Daria Nicolodi, Deep Red) moves back into her old family home with her husband, Bruno (John Steiner, Tenebrae), and Marco (David Colin Jr., Beyond the Door), her young son from her previous marriage. But domestic bliss proves elusive as numerous strange and disturbing occurrences transpire, while Dora is haunted by a series of nightmares and hallucinations, many of them involving her dead former husband. Is the house itself possessed? Or does Dora's increasingly fragile grip on reality originate from somewhere far closer to home? Released in the United States as a sequel to Ovidio G. Assonitis's Beyond the Door, Shock more than lives up to its name, proving that, even at this late stage in his career, Bava hadn't lost his touch for terror. Now restored in high definition for the first time, the Maestro of the Macabre's chilling swansong disturbs like never before in this feature-laden release from Arrow Video.

Press Quotes

An effective, scary horror movie in its own right

     —Combustible Celluloid

A little bit of everything you'd want from an Italian horror movie

     —The Horror Syndicate

Shock certainly delivers the goods in its effectively disturbing portrayal of a boy possessed. The slight-of-hand camera trickery that Bava had mastered with nearly 20 years in the director's chair is equally effective

     —All Movie Guide

Shock more than lives up to its name, proving that, even at this late stage in his career, Bava hadn’t lost his touch for terror. Now restored in high definition for the first time, the Maestro of the Macabre’s chilling swansong disturbs like never before in this feature-laden release from Arrow Video.

     —Tom Stockman, We Are Movie Geeks

In a career spanning four decades and encompassing virtually every genre under the sun, Mario Bava inspired multiple generations of filmmakers, from Dario Argento to Martin Scorsese and Tim Burton.

     —Anne Carlini, Exclusive Magazine

Directors like Mario Bava are the reason cult movie fans exist. Looking just gorgeous in its new transfer and box art, Shock also comes with some heavy-hitting extras

     —Movie Line Online

As the final film from horror legend Mario Bava, Shock earns a spot in cinema history.

     —Colin Jacobson, DVD Magazine
