Gialloween III: THE STRANGE VICE OF MRS. WARDH
October 11 only
“Thematically the closest Fulci got to his peer Argento. Colorful and wild, with orgies, LSD freakouts and painting-by-knife-throwing. The visuals are Fulci’s most impressive.” — Dana Reinoos, Screen Slate
“Full of gothic anxiety, lurid fantasy, sex maniacs, voyeurism, passionate butt-squeezing, ‘blood fetishes’, cobbled streets, gratuitous views and so much more.” — Joseph Swyer, Diabolique Magazine
A year before stunning the genre with ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK, the team of director Sergio Martino, co-writer Ernesto Gastaldi, and stars Edwige Fenech & George Hilton made their collaborative giallo debut with this incredible piece of cinema every bit as thrilling as Argento’s best. Fenech is at her most luminous as an unfaithful diplomat’s wife hunted by a razor-wielding maniac while also haunted by her own depraved desires. This daring shocker that set the pace for years to come.
Dir. Sergio Martino. Italy, 1971. 100 min, Digital. Restoration courtesy of Severin Films and the American Genre Film Archive.
