Sunday Bloody Sunday: Bed Spear & Machete To The Face From ‘A Bay Of Blood’ (1971)

A special treat for you this week on Sunday Bloody Sunday as I spotlight in pictorial form what some would call the most influential slasher film ever, Mario Bava’s 1971 classic, A Bay Of Blood aka Twitch Of The Death Nerve.  Not one, but two scenes were paid homage from this movie for Jason Voorhees’ 1981 coming out party, Friday The 13th Part 2, which you can see below after the pics from A Bay Of Blood.  The most obvious being the mid-stroke sexing couple getting a spear shoved through their sweaty bodies and the other is the more subtle, machete to the face.  So join me below and relive your youth and imagine flipping through the pages of your favorite horror magazine and seeing these pics for the first time and saying:  “Hey, I wanna see that movie where the handicapped guy with the machete in his face!”

*it’s not the size of the spear…..*

*you’re done already?!*


*thank god the thick, lustrous hair remained unharmed*

*sooo – do I qualify for two handicapped parking permits now?*
