THE RED QUEEN KILLS SEVEN TIMES (1972) begins w/ an explanation of the mysteriously homicidal legend of a certain portrait. From the initial set up of the two sisters fighting and the curse that one of them would kill the other, all set in this gloomy castle, I'm thinking this is going to be a good one. The cinematography looks great on the arrow resto, and the story is cool, but it feels way too drawn out. It has the best elements of what makes a giallo interesting; trashy paperback motifs, bloody slashing, relying on the spooky and familial flair of a gothic horror story, murrrder mystery, and something supernatural hiding in the shadows. I usually find, while probably sacrilegious to most film nerds on here, that giallo tends to be punchy moments amongst really boring and inconsequential circumstances that don't really add up to anything, relying mainly on a…, Sybiling RivalryorSisters Are Doing It* For Themselves. In the opening of The Red Queen Kills Seven Times two sisters are fighting over a doll and they chase each other through a massive mansion in Germany. There is no review for this diary entry. But solid costume design shouldn’t come as a surprise as with a lot of giallos, this movie deals with characters that work in high fashion, particularly fashion design and modeling. The 100 minute runtime is very well used, the story moves along briskly and there's always another blood splattered murder scene just around the corner. It earns the designation, from the architectural porn to the high fashion (interwoven into character, setting, and plot) to the long hallways and tight interiors to the wallpaper, yes, the glorious, sometimes garish, sometimes sublime wallpaper. hamburger splash 1,836 films 13,748 98 Edit, Tobias Andersen 8,758 films 18,671 812 Edit, Rules: Generate a number (from 1 to x) via: www.random.org, See how many number of films there are in the…, A list that is trying to contain every horror film made that is not lost and is found on the…, OB-GYN Kenobi 3,841 films 7,841 115 Edit, Step One: Go to www.random.org. 1 Victims 2 Deaths 3 Kill Count 4 Victim Gallery Eveline Wildenbrück - Head smashed against some stairs by Franziska (Flashback) Tobias Wildenbrück - Scared to death … It’s a pretty terrific setup but unfortunately, this is one of the most convoluted gialli I’ve seen as several side plots of varying…, soundtrack is a banger and every girl is hot in this so two thumbs up.

It's all a bit over worked, but worth it for some striking imagery, corpses that can't help blinking, and a killer using a VW Beetle to deadly effect. Definitely falls more on the psychological side and it really fits well with the events surrounding the conflict. And the film scan is A+.
