At the height of the Italian giallo boom of the early 1970s, scores of filmmakers turned their hand to crafting their own unique takes on these lurid murder-mystery thrillers.
In The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave, director Emilio P. Miraglia (The Red Queen Kills Seven Times) melds the giallo s trademark twisty whodunit storytelling with gothic chills, concocting a gripping horror/thriller hybrid. Troubled aristocrat Alan Cunningham (Anthony Steffen, Django the B*stard), haunted by the death of his first wife Evelyn, tries to move on by marrying the seductive Gladys (Marina Malfatti, All the Colours of the Dark). Marital bliss is short-lived, however, as various relatives meet untimely and gruesome deaths, prompting speculation that a vengeful Evelyn has risen from the grave...
Populated by an array of Euro cult stars, including Giacomo Rossi Stuart (Caltiki the Immortal Monster) and the unforgettable Erika Blank (Kill, Baby... Kill!), and featuring a lush lounge score by giallo maestro Bruno Nicolai, The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave offers up a beguiling, unique and downright insane twist on a familiar formula.

Total crap. The guy is soaking wet with sulfuric acid on him and the police are holding him without being burned themselves? The death scenes--especially with the snake--were so melodramatic that I laughed. The antihero--a crusty, old has-been--gets away in the end. Stupid.
The only thing worth watching in this film are the attractive read heads. Worth a watch, if you can scrobble though it with a mouse or remote.
The colors are washed-out, the images are fuzzy, and the aspect ratio is all wrong! Automobiles look like they are three feet long and six feet tall! The gorgeous Erika Blanc is made to look as though she is twelve feet tall and suffering from terminal anorexia nervosa. The DVD is watchable with effort, but keep aspirin nearby in case you get a headache from focusing on the distorted images.
If you get a chance to see a good print of the famous Italian mystery from the 1970s, please do so - you will enjoy it. However, leave this edition alone!
