THE NIGHT EVELYN CAME OUT OF THE GRAVE (aka La notte che Evelyn uscì dalla tomba)

The Night Evelyn Came Out Of The Grave Movie Review

After his possibly cheating wife Evelyn dies, Lord Alan Cunningham (Anthony Steffen) fancies local strip clubs and hangouts looking for women to bring back to his castle so he can torture and kill them. Slowly diving into madness, Cunningham marries another woman and begins to believe Evelyn is coming back from the dead. This 1971 Italian gothic horror film is a true test of patience. The voice dubbing is horrible. There is little violence and/or gore in the film. The story is a dull one. It seems the director's approach to this film was "lets drag out an uninteresting story as long as we can, and keep the viewers attention by randomly throwing in scenes of hot, naked chicks".

Like this one 

It's not until toward the end of the movie that we finally see Evelyn back from the dead--but is she really? 

I'm convinced

If you can manage to make it through the over 100 minutes of this film you are treated to a somewhat interesting, twist-filled ending that goes a twist or two too far, leaving a potentially fantastic ending very disappointing. One thing I did absolutely love about this film is the transfer--the pops, the grainy film, the missing frames--the film was even off centered at one point. Outside of these few things, there's unfortunately not much going for this film. Skip it.
