Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key
DIRECTOR: SERGIO MARTINO
CAST: EDWIGE FENECH, ANITA STRINDBERG, LUIGI PISTILLI
If there is a Queen of the Giallo it would have to be Edwige Fenech, ineffable star of All the Colors of the Dark, The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh, and this taut, grimy adaptation of “The Black Cat” which transposes Edgar Allan Poe’s story to a lampooned version of post-hippie ‘70s Italy that swings to the beat of Bruno Nicolai’s score. Luigi Pistilli is a writer and abrasive drunk whose boozy orgies at his grand country manor irk long-suffering wife Anita Strindberg—until a series of grisly murders really harsh the buzz. Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key screens as part of the series Giallo x 3.
