Baron blood( Visual )

9 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. An American professor (Antonio Cantafora) travels to the estate of his ancestor, the sadistic Baron Otto von Kleist, seeking the truth beneath his notorious reputation. When he and his assistant Eva (Elke Sommer) read aloud an ancient incantation, the Baron's spirit is resurrected, leading to a series of violent deaths within the haunted castle
The house of exorcism( Visual )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After some distributors found Lisa and the devil too mystifying for release, producer Alfredo Leone (with Bava's uncredited assistance) hired veteran actor Robert Alda, shot additional scenes, and transformed Lisa into The house of exorcism, capitalizing on the popularity of demon possession films. While sharing much of the same material, the films have come to be looked upon as two distinct entities, beautifully illuminating the stylistic diversity of the Bava/Leone partnership
