    C'Mon now, it's common knowledge that Bava finished the film for Freda, and was cinematographer for the ENTIRE film. It's well worth being called a Bava film. If we're not going to call I, Vampiri a Bava film, we might as well not call Schock one either, since his hack of a son Lamberto directed some of it :p
