The Dead Are Alive (Italian: L'etrusco uccide ancora / The Etruscan Kills Again) is a 1972 giallo film by Italian director Armando Crispino, with music by Riz Ortolani, and starring Alex Cord, Samantha Eggar and John Marley. It was released in Germany as Das Geheimnis des Gelben Grabes (Mystery of the Gold Diggers), in France as Overtime, and in Spain as El dios de la muerte asesina otra vez (The Death God Kills Again). The film was produced by Artur Brauner and the story was based on a giallo novel written by Bryan Edgar Wallace.
Two young people looking for a place to make love are brutally murdered in an Etruscan tomb which had recently been violated by a group of archaeologists, led by Prof. Porter (Alex Cord). The corpses are positioned so as to indicate they were murdered as sacrifices to the Etruscan Death-god Tuchucha. Several other murders occur, focusing on members of the archeology team and friends of Prof. Porter's. The victims have their heads bashed.
