Bava, Lamberto


Bava, Lamberto
(1944-)
   Director, screenwriter, producer. Son of cinematographer and director Mario Bava, Lamberto Bava followed in his father's footsteps to become a prolific director and producer in the horror film genre. After assisting his father on a host of films and working as assistant director on Mario Lanfranchi's Il bacio (The Kiss, 1974) and Ruggero Deodato's Ultimo mondo cannibale (Last Cannibal World, 1977) and Cannibal Holocaust (1980), he directed his first feature, Macabro (1980), cowritten with Pupi Avati. He subsequently made over 20 horror thrillers and gialli, coming to be best known among aficionados of the genre for La casa con la scala nel buio (A Blade in the Dark, 1983), Le foto di Gioia (Gioia's Photograph, 1987), Demoni (Demons, 1985), and its equally frightening sequel, Demoni 2: L'incubo ritorna (Demons 2: The Nightmare Is Back, 1986). In the 1990s he became better known to mainstream audiences for his rather more traditional fairy-tale Fantaghird series, made for television (1991-1996).
