is this film required bava viewing? i heard about it for a while and it was always region pal. xploited got it in stock today and its ntsc region 0. is this bavas version of ten little indians? edwige fenech is in it and thats reason enough to pick it up as far as im concerned. the releasing studio is film prestige. are they a quality oriented company? all reviews of this film are welcome.
Hell yeah it's required Bava viewing. It's not quite as important or innovative as his other Gialli, it's slightly more on the goofy side. But it's a lot of fun, and his style shines throughout. It's one of my favorite Bava films, actually.

I've been crossing my fingers that this will be available on Anchor Bay's Bava Boxset Volume 2 (if it ever comes out) along with Bay of Blood.

5 Dolls For An August Moon is a very underrated film. Mario Bava himself considered it among his least favorite, but it's actually a good mystery that will hold your interest. As expected, the cinematography from Bava is wonderful. The soundtrack is a quirky lounge music cocktail, very different than expected. Of course I am biased in that Edwige Fenech is my favorite Euro Horror actress. :D :evil: If you dig her, I further recommend this movie.
