The Red Queen Kills Seven Times
The Red Queen Kills Seven Times is a 1972 giallo film directed by Emilio Miraglia. Two sisters and Evelyn, are cursed by a family painting depicting a hundred year-cycle in which a Red Queen is raised from the dead to kill seven times. Hoping to end the cycle, their grandfather, orders the painting removed from their sight. Years Kitty accidentally kills Evelyn during a fight; the death is covered up by their older sister and everyone, including Tobias, is told that Evelyn immigrated to the United States. This doesn't sit well with Kitty, willing to allow Franziska to cover up the murder but feels overwhelming guilt; when their grandfather dies from a fear induced heart attack, a series of murders begin to occur around Kitty, all of which appear to have been caused by a red cloaked Evelyn. The police begin to suspect that Kitty and her married lover Martin are the perpetrators of the murders after Martin's institutionalized wife is found dead. It's revealed that Kitty had only stunned Evelyn, not her biological sister - Tobias had adopted her as an additional way of ending the hundred year-cycle.
Evelyn's true murderer was Franziska, who murdered her at the start of an impulsive plan to be the only person to inherit Tobias' vast fortune. Resentful that she was not the main beneficiary despite providing his daily care, Franziska recruited some of Kitty's co-workers, who were unhappy of Kitty's station and preferential treatment by Martin. After murdering her female accomplices Franziska tricks Kitty into entering the basement of Tobias' mansion, where she tries to drown her via flooding. Realizing the truth, Martin confronts Franziska and gets a confession, only for the woman to be shot by her own husband, who had thus far been complicit with her actions. Herbert leads the police to Kitty's location, saving her from death, but drowning himself in the process.
