Getting the Point

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Knives of the Avenger is Mario Bava's third Cameron Mitchell Viking film, shot in color. It's not as interesting as some of his other films, especially the horror entries, but it still has some appeal in its earnest story of a knife-throwing stranger who protects a woman and her young son from marauding Vikings. Bava co-wrote the screenplay under one of his pseudonyms, "John Hold."
