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.

In The Red Queen Kills Seven Times, an age-old family curse hits sisters Kitty (Barbara Bouchet, Milano Calibro 9) and Franziska (Marina Malfatti, All the Colours of the Dark) following the death of their grandfather Tobias (Rudolf Schündler, The Exorcist, Suspiria). 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?

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 high fashion 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!

Emilio P. Miraglia's diabolically well-heeled, wickedly warped sibling slaying slasher!

Consistently stylish thriller director Emilio P. Miraglia made a considerably sinister splash with his blood-lashed gothic-grisly Giallo 'The Night Evelyn Came out of The Grave' (1971) and promptly followed it with the no less sanguineous, higher-budgeted blood-spiller 'The Red Queen Kills Seven Times' which boisterously proved to be a 'model' example of modish Italian mayhem, a bravura bespoke nightmare of an uncommonly savage sibling rivalry, murderous greed, and the terrible ancestral curse of the psychotically cackling Red Queen, a hysterically hacking, haemoglobin harvesting,knife-wielding banshee, somewhat strikingly attired in a forbidding crimson cowl, aggressively making the once-glamorous, upwardly mobile life of beautiful fashion photographer Kitty Wildenbrück (Barbara Bouchet) a downwardly spiralling nightmare! 'The Red Queen Kills Seven Times' is arguably one of the more spry and prototypically stylish examples of a Giallo, being generously replete with an abundance of glamorously garbed Giallo Vixens serially stalked by a mercilessly malevolent, black-gloved horror harpy, her hysterically shrill slayings immaculately framed by talented DOP Alberto Spagnoli, the unholy terror befalling the murderously beleaguered Wildenbrück clan in their bucolic Bavarian environs is greatly heightened by yet another dazzling, deeply sensuous score by mercurial musical mastermind Bruno Nicolai. Emilio P. Miraglia's diabolically well-heeled, wickedly warped sibling slaying slasher, which like its exquisitely scintillating star Barbara Bouchet has a singularly refined lustre that time has not diminished.
