Gorgeously stylish mix of giallo and Gothic horror.
5 January 2015 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

One of the finest and most stylish gialli of early 70's "The Red Queen Kills 7 Times" by Emilio Miraglia tells the story of legend of The Red Queen who stabbed her sister(The Black Green)and six other innocent victims because she herself was earlier stabbed to death by Black Lady.This family curse happens every 100 years since 1772.There is a truly memorable and haunting femme killer in "The Red Queen Kills 7 Times":a red-caped black-haired beauty who stabs her victims to death via ancient dagger.Very stylish and colorful Italian giallo with lovely Barbara Bouchet and almost unrecognizable Sybil Danning.Plenty of nudity and some graphic murders including nasty death via iron fence.Fantastic soundtrack by Bruno Nicolai.It's a crying shame that "The Red Queen Kills 7 Times" was the last film of obviously talented Emilio Miraglia.8 red flowing gowns out of 10.
