Your Vice Is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key

Your Vice Is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key

Directed by Sergio Martino

An abusive writer is suspected of carrying out a series of murders with a sickle in this essential giallo from Sergio Martino and writer Ernesto Gastaldi (TORSO). Oliviero is lecherous, alcoholic, racist, and violent towards his wife (Anita Strindberg). So when his lovers start turning up dead, all eyes fall on him. But this is no ordinary whodunit-style giallo. Martino and Gastaldi are skilled at subverting audience expectations – and utilize the divine Edwige Fenech and elements from Poe’s “The Black Cat” to twist the screws ever so deliciously tighter and tighter... Contains sexual scenes, violence and gore.

Great twists and turns. Edwige Fenech lighting up the screen as always. Highly recommend.

Sleazy, stylish fun--throw together some scythe- and scissor-gore, rampant sex, a little racism, more than a little wife-beating, some gorgeous Italian castles and countrysides, random motorbike racing, a troupe of singing hippies, and some outright thieving of a classic Poe story, then splash everything vividly together for extra giallo goodness. Not the best you'll see from this classic period, but memorable nonetheless. 4/5.
