Drive-in fodder, 'American Yellow' pictures, stuff that's just stylized enough to maybe hint that the creators may have occasionally watched something Italian. This movie matches those descriptions all too well. Blood and Lace is a movie that you may only watch once very late at night, but there's just enough quiet tension in it, and just enough of a bizarre mystery as well as a combination of strangely mixed plot elements...to basically make this movie stick like glue to the back of your skull for years to come.
I first saw this movie when I was about 12, and I can honestly say...I still love the opening POV camera style for the poor protagonist as she has to relive a nightmare of watching her mother being murdered again, and again, and again...not only that...but in the dream, she actually sees it from the killer's perspective.
Plus, y'know...gotta love that late 60s/early 70s 'do. I wonder how much of the ozone was eroded from the hairspray used on the women in this film alone? There are definitely some bizarre twists in this movie, which is why it's the flick of the week, just in time for Halloween too!
