Born on April 3, 1944 into a family of Italian filmmakers, Lamberto Bava gained experience by working with his famous father Mario Bava, and later with the equally famous Dario Argento. In 1980, he directed Macabro (Frozen Terror), his first feature film. His most successful film was Démoni (Demons) made in 1985. He returned to giallo thrillers with Le Foto di Gioli in 1987, but in later years as Italian cinema production waned, he, along with most of his colleagues, turned to television. He also directed a remake of his father’s The Mask of the Demon in 1989. Today he divides his time between TV and making movies in which he acknowledges his fathers inspiration.
