Henson v Bava

Is it just me, or do Mexican cult horror director Mario Bava and acclaimed Australian photographer Bill Henson have a lot in common? I do love an art/fashion/film parallel. I love this quote from Bava:

"My fantasies are always horrible. For example, I love my young daughter more than anything else in the world, but when I dream of her its always frightening. Do you want to know what character is haunting my subconscious? A violinist who serenades the woman he loves by playing on the tendons of his arms.

Wonder if Bill has similar nightmares?
