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.

If you're a Poe fan you'll like this one. Good acting for the most part, and some genuine scares. This is one of the better giallo films on shudder.
Good not great, worth a watch if you are into the genre.
Quintessential giallo with slashings, idle decadent people that are bafflingly rich, and even some Poe thrown in!
Very good gripping film
