At the height of the Italian giallo boom within the early 1970s, scores of filmmakers turned their hand to crafting their very own unique takes on these lurid murder-mystery thrillers.
In The Red Queen Kills Seven Times, an age-old circle of relatives curse hits sisters Kitty (Barbara Bouchet, Milano Calibro 9) and Franziska (Marina Malfatti, All of the Colours of the Dark) following the death of their grandfather Tobias (Rudolf Schündler, The Exorcist, Suspiria). Each and every hundred years, so the legend goes, the bloodthirsty Red Queen returns and claims seven fresh sufferers. Used to be Tobias just the first… and are Kitty and Franziska next?
Director Emilio P. Miraglia (The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave) once again combines a conventional giallo whodunit narrative with supernatural chills, concocting a gripping horror/thriller hybrid which moves effortlessly between the world of haute couture and creepy gothic locales. Co-starring B-movie legend Sybil Danning (Grindhouse, Howling II), The Red Queen Kills Seven Times shows that there s more to gialli than black-gloved killers!
