The morbid longings of the disinterested wife, funneled into brutal fantasies shot with unnerving lyricism
[It] is slower moving than most thrillers of this era and ilk, but it's every bit as kooky and confounding (in the most wonderful ways) as you can hope - and Fenech, arguably the queen the gialli, smolders in every single scene.
Giallo at it's best, The Strange Vice of Mrs. Ward is a lovely mess, with plenty of style over substance. There's a killer, a woman with kinky fetishes, a shit ton of lovers and one of them is the killer. The story is a disjointed mess but each segment flows at a really good pace, featuring some inventive scenes here and there. There's always something new to enjoy and appreciate at each turn and that's where the success of this one resides.
Wow! This one really moves, from the very beginning we are assaulted with seeming misogynist activity involving nakedness and blood. With barely time to breath we are drawn into a fast moving and shocking tale involving a knife slashing serial killer and the beautiful Edwige Fenech's real, imagined or remembered images of violent rape culminated in ecstatic sex. Heady stuff indeed and if that all were not enough Edwige seems unable to keep any clothes on for at least the first half hour. Things calm down a little for a while as we admire the fantastic set design and score at one moment threatening at another sweet and seductive and in accompaniment to the vicious rape scenes almost religious. We struggle to work out just who is killing who as the film turns into a thriller before the wonderful and exciting last part where the twists and turns are for once surprising and a joy to behold. Excellent. Not much finesse but everything else
'The Strange Vice of Mrs Wardh' is an essential viewing for any giallo fan. The acting, sets and settings, plot, and twists are all very well done.
Hands down one of the greatest giallo's ever made. Stylish, Sadistic and Sexy.
oh and did I mention Edwige Fenech
