The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh (1971)

AKA: Blade of the Ripper

Starring: Edwige Fenech, George Hilton
Director: Sergio Martino

An Ambassador's wife returns to her home only to find out a mysterious man is murdering her friends.

My Take:
I thought this was an above average giallo. Maybe it was the extra splash of pervision/eroticism or maybe I simply found myself being smittened over the gorgeous lead, Edwige Fenech. All the elements of a giallo mystery are present here and it's done in a slick manner. Just enough twists and turn to keep you guessing.

Rating: So Good
