YOUR VICE IS A LOCKED ROOM AND ONLY I HAVE THE KEY
Dir. Sergio Martino, 1972.
Italy. 97 min.
In English

I dont feel like being involved in one of your spectacles.

Made between ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK and TORSO, YOUR VICE IS A LOCKED ROOM AND ONLY I HAVE THE KEY is a misanthropic, brooding, manipulative and beautiful treatment of Edgar Allen Poes story The Black Cat. It also has a drunk author getting J&B shipped by the crate to his house, which might be the gialloest thing ever. Fans of Sergio Martinos earlier film THE STRANGE VICE OF MRS. WARDH (from which this film gets it name) might be thrown a bit by the subdued, sullen quality, but its part of a greater plan, a plan that includes commune freak-outs, slaughtered mistresses, gratuitous POV (on line with Martinos next film, TORSO) and perhaps greatest of all, Edwige Fenech, of whom we can say nothing without getting the vapors. With a storyline thatll satisfy no-loose-ends mystery fans, enough jaw-dropping cinematography and costuming to please the art crowd, and Martinos thoughtful and visceral style (theres also a great Bruno Nicolai score to sweeten the pot), YOUR VICEmight be Martinos finest.

"A film with that wears its dubious morality on its sleeve, Your Vice Is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key is a tasty bit of giallo goodness. Kinky and cruel, it lives up to its purple prose title and will surely satisfy the appetites of Eurotrash fans." -Tenebrous Kate, Love Train For The Tenebrous Empire (http://blog.tenebrouskate.com/your-vice-is-a-locked-room-and-only-i-have-the-key-1972/)
