'Kill, Baby ... Kill!' is the crown jewel of Enzian's slate of Halloween movies

The jewel in the crown of this month’s slate of Midnight Movies at Enzian has to be a one-night only screening of giallo genius Mario Bava’s atmospheric masterpiece Kill, Baby … Kill! Making the rounds of discerning big screens again on its 50th anniversary, the movie has been given a high-definition 2K digital restoration. But whatever version the film screens in, neither time nor formatting has dulled Bava’s incredible eye for beauty and fright. Set in Transylvania (natch), Kill, Baby … Kill! combines murder mystery with gothic ghost story, and is delightfully heavy on dark castles, creepy children, and mysterious rituals where nothing is quite as it seems. This headtrip flick had a huge influence on Scorcese and Fellini, and still seems way ahead of its time stylistically. And in one of those flourishes that adds a little bit extra, the Eden Bar next door will be marking this event with a custom “Kill Baby Kill” cocktail, as part of their “13 Cocktails of Halloween” program.

11:59 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21 | Enzian Theater, 1300 S. Orlando Ave, Maitland | 407-629-0054 | enzian.org | $9-11
