Dama Rossa Uccide Sette Volte, La (1972, ITA/GER) C-95m. SCOPE ** D: Emilio P. Miraglia. Starring Barbara Bouchet, Ugo Pagliai, Marina Malfatti, Marino Masé, Pia Giancaro, Sybil Danning, Nino Korda, Rudolf Schündler, Carla Mancini. Okay mystery with gothic elements, though a typical giallo. A large family is called to the reading of a will after the patriarch dies and from then on, the notorious Red Queen stalks and kills the relatives - seven of them according to the legend. Confusing at times, with very little continuity, so enjoying this is difficult, but some set-pieces are quite good, as is score by Bruno Nicolai. English titles: BLOOD FEAST, CRY OF A PROSTITUTE: LOVE KILLS, FEAST OF FLESH, THE RED QUEEN KILLS 7 TIMES, THE CORPSE WHICH DIDN'T WANT TO DIE.
