YOUR VICE IS A LOCKED ROOM AND ONLY I HAVE THE KEY

Sergio Martino, Italy, 1972, Arrow Films, Horror

Social critique, kink and Edgar Allen Poe collide, with major genre pedigree on the side. Tarantino favorite Edwige Fenech (giallo star of ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK, THE STRANGE VICE OF MRS. WARDH) appears in this taut, grimy adaptation of “The Black Cat.” Dig the rocking soundtrack by giallo specialist Bruno Nicolai while the film pokes fun at Italy’s post-hippie ‘70s hanger-on set.

Luigi Pistilli (MILANO CALIBRO 9, A BAY OF BLOOD) plays writer Oliviero, an abrasive drunk who amuses himself by holding drunken orgies at his grand country manor -- much to the displeasure of his long-suffering wife (Anita Strindberg). But this decadence is soon rocked by a series of grisly murders, in which Oliviero finds himself implicated.
