DVD Review BARON BLOOD (BLU-RAY)
It's finally time to retire my old laserdisc copy of Mario Bava's return to gothic form, as this promises to be a wonderful Blu-ray edition from Kino Classics.
After spending several years exploring more contemporary genres, director Mario Bava (Black Sunday) returned with Baron Blood to the gothic as a setting for a gruesome thriller. Working with producer Alfredo Leone, Bava crafted a film that is loyal to the bylaws of traditional horror, but is infused with a more modern visual style.
The drama of the Ewing family dynasty continues with a whole new generation, as J.R.'s (Larry Hagman) and Sue Ellen's (Linda Gray) son, John Ross (Josh Henderson), locks horns with Bobby's (Patrick Duffy) adopted son, Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe), proving that in Texas, oil is still thicker than blood. At stake is the coveted Southfork family estate sitting on a billion barrels of oil.
A box set of Kino's releases of five films (Nothing Sacred, A Farewell To Arms, A Star is Born, Bird of Paradise, Little Lord Fauntleroy) culled from the personal collection of producer David O. Selznick preserved by the George Eastman House Motion Picture Department, newly mastered in HD and authorized by the Selznick estate.
