KillerDames

Arrow Video set to release double shot of Italian horror this month.

 Arrow Video recently announced the May 23rd release of Emilio P. Miraglia’s Italian giallo classic THE RED QUEEN KILLS SEVEN TIMES and the delirious psychedelic thriller THE NIGHT EVELYN CAME OUT OF THE GRAVE on dual format Blu-ray and DVD, a beautifully restored HD set hiding under the handle “Killer Dames”

At the height of the Italian giallo boom in the early 1970s, scores of filmmakers turned their hand to crafting their own unique takes on these lurid murder-mystery thrillers. This limited edition double pack features two distinctive offerings by Emilio P. Miraglia, which meld twisty whodunit narratives with Gothic chills.

In RED QUEEN, an age-old family curse hits sisters Kitty (Barbara Bouchet) and Franziska (Marina Malfatti) following the death of their grandfather Tobias. Every hundred years, so the legend goes, the bloodthirsty Red Queen returns and claims seven fresh victims. Was Tobias just the first… and are Kitty and Franziska next?

EVELYN sees troubled aristocrat Alan Cunningham (Anthony Steffen), haunted by the death of his first wife Evelyn, tries to move on by marrying the seductive Gladys (Marina Malfatti). 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…
