Emilio P. Miraglia Classic DVDs Review07:30:00
Good Morning Lovelies,
Growing up with an Italian father meant that I have seen a lot of films from around the world. Especially Italian cinema! Celebrating two 1970s features, Arrow Films have allowed me to relive the classics features that have long ruled over Italian filmmakers.
With two murder-mysteries to enjoy, I had two new releases to enjoy over the weekend, starting with The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave...
Directed by Emilio P. Miraglia, the film takes a whodunit turn as it tells the story of Alan Cunningham, an aristocrat, who is haunted by the death of his first wife Evelyn, as he tries to move on with his love life. Taunted by the feelings he has, Alan is forced to deal with the horrible deaths of those around him, as they meet untimely deaths.
The film is full of the gripping nature that 1970s pictures had and there is a sense of beauty due to the colours and score that Miraglia created. Plus with stars including Giacomo Rossi Stuart and Erika Blank, the film is in safe hands, as the actors know what to do to keep the thriller aspect alive throughout.
There so I am giving it...
The second film I watched was The Red Queen Kills Seven Times...
Also directed by Miraglia, the film captures a family who is cursed after the death of their grandfather. Brother and sister act, Kitty and Franziska, have to take down the evil Red Queen who returns and causes the deaths and violent acts happening to seven individuals that they know.
The film isn’t as gripping as the previous one, but it is just as thrilling. There is many moments where you expect them to have beaten the Red Queen character, but in fact they haven’t and it does become a little repetitive. There isn’t also a feeling of connecting with the characters in this film, which could be because of the Red Queen character.
This is why I am giving it...
