Product Description

After his faithless wife dies died under mysterious circumstances, an unbalanced aristocrat remarries, only to have his honeymoon haunted by apparitions, slayings, and an empty tomb in THE NIGHT EVELY CAME OUT OF THE GRAVE. Is madness or murder the soul of the plot… and who will live to know the truth?

When two sisters inherit the family castle, they are plagued by savage murders committed by a black-haired woman in a blood-red cloak -- a description fitting their ancestor, the "Red Queen," whom legend says claims seven lives every hundred years.

Pity those who saw these two giallo gems via faded prints or murky bootleg tapes. NoShame Films proudly presents these genre masterpieces from the twisted mind of Emilio P. Miraglia in their original widescreen glory, in full bloody color, and backed with classic EuroCult scores by Bruno Nicolai

Giallo, proclaims actress Erika Blanc, in an interview on disc one of The Emilio Miraglia Killer Queen Box Set, is back in style thanks to Quentin Tarantino. She must be right, considering the release of this stylish gift box containing not only two DVDs with Italian horror classics The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave (1971) and The Red Queen Kills Seven Times(1972), but copious extras and movie trailers, and a Red Queen action figure. Inappropriate for children, however, director Emilio Miraglia’s two films contain nude models and beautiful gore. The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave, Miraglia’s masterpiece, tells the story of Alan (Anthony Steffen), a man whose obsession with his disloyal dead wife, Evelyn, causes him to prey upon sexy redheads, including Erika Blanc, who in a classic striptease sequence, strips inside a coffin. When Alan finally overcomes his weakness and remarries to Gladys (Marina Malfatti), she tortures him in a particularly cruel way. In The Red Queen, two sisters, Kitty (Barbara Bouchet) and Evelyn, are cursed by a family painting depicting a seven year-cycle in which a Red Queen is raised from the dead to kill seven times. After Evelyn seemingly perishes and multiple killings ensue, their niece Franziska (Marina Malfatti) and Kitty start to suspect that Evelyn may be the Red Queen. Both films are great Giallo, ripe with high-fashion crime scenes, salacious sets, and spooky scores by Bruno Nicolai. Interviews with both actors and crew educate viewers about the climate needed to create these excellent features. The Emilio Miraglia Killer Queen Box Set deserves a place in the library beside Argento’s Suspiria and Bava’s Kill, Baby, Kill, though any fan of horror will appreciate its fun packaging. --Trinie Dalton

I bought this back in April and only just got around to watching it. Based on the previous posting, I was worried I wouldn't be able to watch the films, but I had no problem with either one. In fact, both films were quite beautifully transferred and played marvelously. They might not have been the most outrageous of giallos (see the works of Dario Argento or Sergio Martino), but were quite entertaining. And the accompanying interviews, trailers, etc., were put together well, too. All this, plus the incredible "Red Queen" statuette included in the box! Someday, this will probably be a sought-after collectible.

The Emilio Miraglia Killer Queen Box Set is a must have for any Italian giallo fan. NOSHAME did an excellent job of restoring these high-budget cult classics, "The Night Evelyn Came out of the Grave" and "The Red Queen Kills 7 Times." The picture and audio are of such great quality that one would think these movies were filmed yesterday. It is obvious that the director, Emilio Miraglia, was inspired by both Mario Bava and Dario Argento. In both movies, especially the "Red Queen," he uses lavish sets and the widespread use of blue, red, and green gels. Both are very gothic in that they employ huge castles, dungeons, rats, and bats. Like Argento, Miraglia pays close attention to gory details. Of the two movies, "Red Queen" is my favorite. The plot is very intricate; it is filled with numerous red herrings and twists and turns. Barbara Bouchet as "Kitty" is wonderful. In fact, beautiful actresses and handsome actors are used profusely throughout these movies. Another reason why they remind me of the movies that Bava made. "The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave" reminded me very much of Bava's "Hatchet for the Honeymooon," which also had a man who was luring young girls, especially models, to his castle and murdering them. The main characters in both "Hatchet" and "Evelyn" were dealing with mental psychosis triggered by events from the past. "The Red Queen" reminded me of Bava's "Blood and Black Lace," which involved another modelling agency where models were dropping like flies. In the "Red Queen," there is a scene where the Red Queen drags a man to his death while driving a car. I wonder if Argento was influenced by it when he directed "Deep Red" in which a young man is dragged along the street before having his head crushed by a car. This box set is definitely worth the price.

I could have done without the figurine and just grabbed the two good giallo movies from the early seventies if it would have lowered the price. This set though is so well done and the movies look great , I had no problems with playing them either. Unfortunately no shame went out of business because they always made sure that their movies looked pretty good before releasing them on dvd. Now all we have is mya who does nothing to restore prints. mya please get one of those computers to removes lines and dirt please!. Anyways this is long out of print and it is as good as any of the giallo entries in the early seventies. THe heyday of the giallos was 69-79 probably so these are similiar to other releases out at the time. We have killings and the mystery of a whodoneit thriller and a final resolution. Giallo fans need this boxset , after all giallos are not being released very much at all on dvd. IT's sad and a terrible thing too. However blue underground, severin, and shameless in the uk are releasing quality prints still. mya could be as good as them if they'd find better prints or clean up what they have. trashonline has many good prints of rare giallos that noone here seems able to put out too. Anyways this is a set that sets the standard on a good giallo mystery movie release should be like. It has extras too , no shame did that (RIP) , so get this while you can.
