This film is screened as part of a Euro Horror day at the ICA which brings together film historians, programmers and academics to discuss this cinematic tradition, critical category and marketing label.
This one-day event seeks to examine the critical intersections and interactions between various fields of cultural production – fan discourses, discourses of connoisseurship, academic discourses, spaces for dissemination – to map out a richer picture of the cultural history of Euro Horror, which more often interlocks with global histories of exploitation, sexploitation or psychotronic cinema. The event closes with a 35mm screening of La Notte che Evelyn usci dalla tomba / The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave (Emilio P. Miraglia, 1971)
Speakers include film historian Jonathan Rigby, film genre programmer Josh Saco, Professor Peter Hutchings, Associate Professor Ian Olney, and Dr Antonio Lázaro-Reboll.
