Starring Samantha Eggar and Alex Cord this classy genre-crossing Italian Horror was written and directed in 1972 by Armando Crispino who made the excellent Autopsy in 1973. The Code Red print I have is very good with sharp detail of exteriors and interiors and good flesh colours. The town of Spoleto where the film is located consists of blocks of Italian-gothic buildings joined by oneway streets and spooky alleyways. The acting in dubbed films will always seem a little wooden but here I thought the characters were eventually quite well developed. The directing style is similar to Autopsy but the story couldn't be more different, the visual style and a subplot concerning archeology will probably make this film appeal to the majority of 'chicks' despite the violent sexy content. For horrorblokes your The Dead Are Alive guide to essential Italian Horror ingredients is as follows: 1)There is a lot of blood which seems to be of the correct colour. 2)The body count is 7/8 of which several victims are graphic. 3)There are at least 3 sexy females one of whom is photographed naked from the side and rear. The camera loves her. If you enjoy this title try Dario Argento's Inferno.

From the title, you may be thinking that this is another 'Morti Viventi' excursion from Italy but, surprise, it emerges as a gripping, giallo who-done-it taking place at an ancient etruscan dig. Director Armando Crispino slowly builds his film around red herring set pieces practically bouncing Alex Cord and Samantha Eggar off walls. With some extremely gory effects for its time , the film ,along with Mario Bavas' 'BAY OF BLOOD', is an early version of the slice and dice genre so prominent in the late seventies. I am looking forward for this release because BCI has given us such excellent transfers of Euro-horrors in the past. The Eurovista release has numerous splices and scratches which disrupt the action, hopefully , this edition will give the film the reputation it deserves in the giallo canon.

1972's "The Dead Are Alive!" (Italian title means: "The Etruscan Kills Again," which is more precise) is an interesting giallo that could also be in the genre of horror, but ultimately it is a giallo, directed by Armando Crispino and written by Lucio Battistrada and Armando Crispino with music by Riz Ortolani. Crispino later directed what is known as "Autopsy" in 1975. But "The Dead Are Alive!" excels on its own merits. When I first shopped for this, I was looking for works by Alex Cord, who I had seen his start in "Synanon" and in 1966's re-make of "Stagecoach" in the John Wayne role and felt he had made that film for me and I was somewhat disappointed he had not seemed to go on to bigger things and I thought he had perhaps gone the route of making spaghetti westerns, I am not sure. But then this film came up and I saw his co-star was Samantha Eggar, the exciting star of "The Collector" and "Return from the Ashes" who too unfortunately made the unappealing comedy "Walk Don't Run" and the disastrous "Doctor Doolittle" when her career was taking off. In no time she was making TV movies like the re-make of "Double Indemnity." No one was looking when she gave great performances in "The Lady in the Car With Glasses and a Gun" and "The Walking Stick." So, it was a no brainer for me. Then, it being Italian, I quickly saw there were a number of editions of it out there, some reportedly terrible and even a Sinister Cinema edition which further impressed me, but I knew I had to have the best for this film and prayed for an affordable vendor of the Code Red edition when I went to order and my prayers were answered. It is really one of the better giallos, very exciting and stylish, and the stars are put to good use and look very beautiful together. Crispino deserves his attention now.Read more ›

Format: DVD
Even though this film is entitled under its German title, 'L'Etrusco Uccide Ancora' - THE DEAD ARE ALIVE (1972), how it is called in Italian - is overall, a typical Italian thriller of the Seventies.

Directed with style by Armando Crispino, who also directed the breathtaking 'Macchie Solari' (aka Autopsy, The Victim), the film suggests supernatural forces involved in the plot. That makes the whole thing even more atmospheric and will keep you on the edge of your seats.

The German video versions are heavily cut concerning the plot (one version is also cut concerning the violent killings), while only the Danish video version appears to be complete (according to the excellent English book 'Blood and Black Lace').

Nevertheless, if you are able to get this gem on video, get it: This giallo truly delivers!
