When two sisters inherit their family castle, a string of murders committed by a mysterious dark haired woman in a red cloak decimates their circle of friends. Is the killer their ancestor, the "Red Queen" whom legend says claims seven lives every hundred years? Written by
Emilio Miraglia's "Red Queen Kills 7 Times" is a more entertaining affair than his previous giallo, "The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave". With a larger budget, the film has a bigger world to set its blood-splattered action in. The sets and scenery are superb, the cast is excellent and the score is catchy.
Trying to emulate the success of Dario Argento, Miraglia goes for dramatic set-pieces, some of which work remarkably well. While not in the same league as Argento's finest works, the film is a solid tale and worth a rental at least.
The film contains many lovely ladies, including Barbara Bouchet, Marina Malfatti, Sybil Danning and Pia Giancaro.
8 out of 10. Fans of the VW Beetle may also like this film!
