Ratings & Reviews

  1. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave

    The final act elevates the overall experience, presenting something of a novel twist on the usual Giallo tropes. Miraglia, who later helmed the superior if derivative Red Queen Kills Seven Times, breaks many of the traditions established by masters Bava & Argento, but for the most part these digressions produce only tedium, at least until the end. There's a longing here for a certain energy, or stylistic excess.

  2. Tadzio Bonaparte's rating of the film The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave

    A man tries to strangle his wife after he catches her wearing a red wig.

  3. Nick Schwab's rating of the film The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave

    The final twist of the multiple climatic twists may justify some of its narrative problems and the fact that the first act feels light (and thus restrained) in its on-screen violence. But, this doesn't quite save the fact that it often feels directionless and oddly assembled in its characterization and often slugs along. Everything fits right in this giallo, but it's too downplayed in tension until it, well, has it.

  4. film_lies101's rating of the film The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave

    Locations/atmosphere - check, soundtrack - check, cinematography - check, acting - pretty good for the genre, story - makes no fucking sense. All in all does its job, a pretty decent Giallo

  5. Raymond Likes Subtitles's rating of the film The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave

    Ticks a fair number of boxes on the Giallo checklist. Stylish enough with a classic double twist Giallo ending.

  6. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave

    Gothic/erotic giallo. Since the death of his wife Evelyn, Lord Alan Cunningham chases red-haired women, tortures them and finally kills them. Now he marries a blonde woman who hires five maids forced to wear blonde wigs. But Evelyn's ghost is starting to make public appearances and Lord Cunningham is very annoyed. Interesting Miraglia mise-en-scene and one or two references to Alfred Hitchcock. Recommended.
