The Emilio Miraglia Killer Queen Box Set in April

NoShame Films have announced the Region 1 DVD release of The Emilio Miraglia Killer Queen Box Set for 25th April 2006 priced at $34.95 SRP. Crumbling castles... ancient curses... spooky family portraits... skeletons in the closet... asylums... knives... bloodshed… and rats, rats rats! Welcome to the twisted mind of Emilio P. Miraglia, writer-director of two of the most mind-bending psycho-sexual thrillers of the Italian giallo cycle. Now, NoShame Films is proud to present his two most terrifying films together in one package in a limited edition set with a super-exclusive extra that you won’t find anywhere else! With just 7000 individually number copies available, this is the one DVD that giallo fans will kill to get their hands on!

The Night Evelyn Came Out Of The Grave (1971): Anthony Steffen (DJANGO THE BASTARD) stars as an English aristocrat who grieves over the death of his perfidious wife Evelyn by bringing home a string of red-headed prostitutes and striptease artists (including KILL, BABY... KILL's Erika Blanc), none of whom are ever seen again. When he remarries, this time to a gorgeous blond (Marina Malfatti), strange apparitions, midnight slayings, and an empty tomb suggest that Evelyn has come back to voice her displeasure. Is madness or murder the soul of the plot… and who will live to know the truth?

The Red Queen Kills Seven Times: Guilt over the accidental death of their sister Evelyn binds siblings Francesca (Marina Malfatti) and Kitty (DON’T TORTURE A DUCKLING’s Barbara Bouchet). When the girls inherit their family castle, a string of savage murders decimates their circle of friends, associates and lovers… murders committed by a dark-haired woman in a blood-red cloak. Is it the work of their ancestor, the “Red Queen” whom legend says claims seven lives every hundred years… or could it be their dead sister Evelyn, back from her watery grave to exact a terrible revenge?

Pity those who saw these two hallucinogenic giallo gems via scratched drive-in prints or panned-and-scanned bootleg videocassettes. NoShame Films proudly presents these genre masterpieces in their original widescreen aspect ratios, in full bloody colour, both backed by classic EuroCult scores by Bruno Nicolai (CASE OF THE SCORPION’S TAIL).
