When a young woman is murdered, police suspect Oliviero. Things get complicated when his young, beautiful, and self-confident niece, Floriana, pays an unexpected visit. A silver-haired stranger observes. More women die, and thoughts of harming Irina give Oliviero new inspiration. What’s Floriana’s game and who’s the observant stranger? Watching all is a black cat named Satan.

When his mistress is murdered, police suspect Oliviero, and things get complicated when his young, beautiful and self-confident niece, Floriana, pays an unexpected visit.

Edwige’s Unholy Pact Worth Every Penny
Possessing what could be the second-best title in film history (after 1963’s “The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies,” of course), “Your Vice Is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key” (1972) reunites director Sergio Martino and stars Edwige Fenech and Ivan Rassimov, who had previously collaborated on such wonderful films as “The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh” (1970) and “All the Colors of the Dark” (1972). (Indeed, this film’s title was copped from a line of dialogue in “Mrs. Wardh”). This time around, though, the story mainly concerns a decadent writer, Oliviero, well played by Luigi Pistilli, who spends most of his days drinking booze and abusing his wife (giallo regular Anita Strindberg) both physically and emotionally. While a wave of murders sweeps through their small town, Oliviero’s niece pays a visit, and so we finally get to see our Edwige, a full 1/2 hour into the picture. Gorgeous as always, Edwige here sports a short-haired bob for a change but looks smashing still. Anyway, truth to tell, I had no idea where this picture was going for at least the first hour. The film concludes very neatly, though, with some nifty surprises, and always keeps the viewer intrigued by combining a truly decadent atmosphere with bits of Poe’s “The Black Cat,” echoes of Clouzot’s “Diabolique” (1955), some jolting murders, soft-core lesbianism and, typical for gialli, some red herrings. The fine folks at No Shame have come up with yet another great-looking DVD package, containing recent interviews with both Martino and Fenech. Edwige’s interview suggests that the woman has made some kind of unholy pact with the devil himself; no woman could possibly look as beautiful, at 57, as she does today. Just remarkable!
It might be Martino’s best
* This is a very entertaining giallo that I enjoy more each time I watch it. Oliviero (Luigi Pistilli) has three hobbies – drinking, sleeping around, and abusing his wife. When his lover is murdered while waiting to meet Oliviero, the police naturally suspect him. So, when his maid is found murdered inside his house, Oliviero knows he’s in trouble. The couple’s niece, Floriana (Edwige Fenech) shows up and things really start to heat up. Through manipulation, seduction, and violence, she pits the couple against each other to get what she wants.
* One of the strongest elements in Your Vice is a Locked Door and Only I Have the Key (Your Vice for short) is the acting. The three leads I’ve already mentioned, along with Ivan Rassimov, represent one of the strongest casts assembled for a giallo. Each is magnificent.
* The story in Your Vice is also superb. There are enough twist and turns along the way to keep anyone guessing. Just when your sure you’ve gotten it all figured out, Martino throws another wrinkle into the story. I’ve read that at least part of the story is derived from Poe’s The Black Cat. I’ll be honest, I’ve never read the story so I have no way of knowing how faithful it is.
* This is one movie that should definitely get an official DVD release. Until then, I’m just happy to have my “unofficial” copy.
