Nice mix of Giallo and Gothic horror
Lord Alan Cunningham has been a troubled man since the death of his wife. The only release he can find from his torment is by luring women that remind him of his dead wife to his castle and then brutally murdering them. That is until he meets Gladys. The two are quickly married and Lord Cunningham appears to be cured. But a series of strange events involving the possibility that his first wife has returned from the grave seems to send him over the edge.
The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave is one part Giallo and one part Gothic horror. It’s not the greatest example of either sub-genre you’ll run across, but I was reasonably entertained throughout. There are plenty of twists and turns in the plot to keep you guessing up to the very end. While I’ve seen enough of these Gialli that I’m rarely surprised anymore, there’s no way I could have predicted all the twists in the last act. The acting is about average for this kind of film, but it was nice to see Marina Malfatti with a large role as Gladys. Most of the rest of the cast will be familiar to fans of 70s Italian films.
A word of warning about the DVD – there are a bunch of El Cheapo DVD companies out there that offer The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave. One appears to be about as good as the other. The best that can be said about these DVDs is that they are watchable (and I’m being generous). If this sounds like a movie that would be of interest, I’ve read that NoShame DVD has acquired the Region 1 rights. Based on their track record, it should be worth waiting for. I’ll definitely upgrade once it’s released.
Edit (5/7): NoShame’s new DVD of The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave is, in a word, stunning – especially when compared with what’s been available until now in Region 1. I have a new appreciation for the film and actually enjoyed it much more than I did just a couple of months ago. It’s like watching a whole different movie.
The worms are waiting.
“The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave” is a twisty (naturally), engaging example of the Giallo genre that benefits strongly from its environs, atmosphere, and visual poetry (not to mention nudity). Anthony Steffen (“Evil Eye”) stars as Lord Alan Cunningham, an aristocrat who can’t get over the death of his first wife Evelyn. Now, his personality has taken on a sadistic, fetishistic bent as he takes his one night stands back to his remote castle and tortures them. Then, he decides he can best move on by impulsively marrying new acquaintance Gladys (Marina Malfatti, “All the Colors of the Dark”). But when some of those close to Alan meet horrible deaths, it seems as if Evelyn might be seeking revenge from beyond the grave.
This is a pretty good mystery that keeps its viewers engrossed, just like any good film of its type. Even if they think they have it figured out early on, it’s still worth sticking with for its melding of sex, violence, and style. The actors are all excellent, with Enzo Tarascio (“Sword of the Empire”), Giacomo Rossi Stuart (“The Last Man on Earth”), Umberto Raho (“Seven Seas to Calais”), Roberto Maldera (“Assassination”), Joan C. Davis (in her only film role), and the luscious Erika Blanc (“Kill, Baby… Kill!”) offering great support. The lounge score by composer Bruno Nicolai is the ideal accompaniment, especially for those flashback scenes in the garden. The film is violent, but the gore comes in spurts, such as a sequence involving pet foxes, and a series of stabbings near the end.
Alan is an interesting sort of protagonist: far from innocent, since he’s spilling his share of blood, but not entirely unsympathetic due to his deteriorating mental state. This plays into a delicious final turn of events, when miscreants get revealed, but characters still have surprises for each other. Those are often the best kinds of endings in murder-mystery fare.
Recommended as a companion piece to filmmaker Emilio P. Miraglias’ follow-up Giallo, “The Red Queen Kills Seven Times”.
