“La notte che Evelyn usci dalla tomba” (1971) Review

“La notte che Evelyn usci dalla tomba”: Lord Alan Cunningham recently became a widower. His young wife, Evelyn, is buried in a crypt near the family castle. However, the lord prefers to spend most of his time in the city, so the castle gradually falls into neglect and decays. Periodically Cunningham visits the patrimonial nest. From time to time he brings red-haired prostitutes here. Red hair reminds the lord of an untimely deceased wife. At the time of his seizures, Cunningham kills the girls, and then spends some time in the psychiatric hospital of his friend Dr. Richard Timberlane.

His elder brother George in every way covers these unhealthy hobbies. He even finds him girls like Evelyn. Most often in strip clubs. After all, these women most often live alone and if they are lost, no one will look for them. However, the next acquaintance with the blonde Gladys fascinates Lord Alan. And he hurriedly marries. Alas, marriage does not cure psychosis. Moreover, now the ghost of Lady Cunningham haunts Gladys. Soon, real murders begin in the estate and the mental state of the married couple becomes quite shaky. Apparently, someone wants to bring them to madness…

La notte che Evelyn usci dalla tomba 1971 review

Italian director Emilio Miraglia in five years of his creative work has shot only six movies. The picture “La notte che Evelyn usci dalla tomba” is the most famous of them. This is a mixture of thriller, giallo, horror film, erotica and gothic mysticism. Obviously, Miraglia saw enough of the works of Alfred Hitchcock. Or maybe he dreamed of the fame of his countrymen — Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci and Mario Bava. Anyway, “La notte che Evelyn usci dalla tomba” is an obvious attempt to copy the most successful movies of that era. The attempt, however, is not as bad as it seemed at first. The detective story develops according to all the canons of the genre, although one can guess the personality of the main villain much earlier than the authors intended.
