Blood and Black Lace (Italian title: Sei donne per l'assassino) is a 1964 Italian horror thriller film directed by Mario Bava. Bava cowrote the screenplay with Giusseppe Barilla and Marcello Fondato. The film stars Cameron Mitchell and Eva Bartok. The story focuses on the stalking and brutal murders of various scantily-clad fashion models, committed by a masked killer in a desperate attempt to obtain a scandal-revealing diary.

The film is generally considered one of the earliest and most influential of all giallos, and served as a stylistic template for the “body count” slasher films of the 1980’s. Tim Lucas has noted that the film has "gone on to inspire legions of contemporary filmmakers, from Dario Argento to Martin Scorsese to Quentin Tarantino."
