The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave

This great giallo has everything–senseless murders, sadomasochism, a sweaty obsessive maniac with a penchant for thigh-high boots…in short, a hell of a lot of fun. How many strange women can he lure back to the torture dungeon before somebody catches on?

The score by Bruno Nicolai is every bit as fun and is a must-own if you’re a fan of Nicolai’s other work in movies like Case of the Bloody Iris and Nightmares Come At Night.  How CAN you go wrong with tracks titled “Funeral Strip Tease” or “After Fleeing the Torture”?

There is plenty to revel in with The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave, also known as La Notte Che Evelyn Usci’ Dalla Tomba. Turntabling is pleased to offer this Italian import CD for the first time. If you haven’t seen this one yet, you owe it to yourself to at least check out the trailer (below). This has some of our favorite moments of giallo history. The boot fetish thing really gives this a nice kick (hah) and the ending (which we won’t spoil here) is also a nice touch. All around this is a hell of a good watch, especially with a six pack of your favorite wine (is that too much?) and a jumbo-sized pizza. Don’t hold the anchovies, this is Italian cinema!

The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave OST by Bruno Nicolai is a new, sealed import compact disc. Buy it now from Turntabling for $29 plus shipping.
