I think that's the problem with most genre movies, Paul. I certainly struggle to remember a lot of what's gone on films I remember enjoying immensely.

I've got a stack of unwatched gialli waiting to be watched, one day I'll get around to it.

Anyone else like Short Night Of Glass Dolls then? Or am I the only one?
Count me in as a fan. Recently double dipped on this title and bought the German DVD from Koch Media, lovely PAL 16:9 enhanced transfer and really cool digi pack packaging. Also has a nice 23 minute documentary on Mario adorf (sadly no English options on the doc though)

I know. I find that when I watch one giallo, spaghetti or poliziotteschi, I tend to get a taste for them all over again, leading to a marathon of a whole bunch over a few days, which is probably another reason why I seem to forget which scene is from what film, if you know what I mean.

Eighteen quid mate....done you a turn as mrs wardh wasn't my cup o' tea....as TORSO was all you wanted rid of......well why not make a buck,whilst helping you out.....still miss that bloody artwork.....but the SHAMELESS version is more than ample when it comes to pic quality...

I shall be keeping my other Anchor Bay copy of Torso, it was pointless keeping both copies afterall. Isn't there a sound problem on the Shameless release of Torso? If it wasn't for that I'd have bought a copy by now just to see the beginning as it was meant to be seen.

I heard that NoShame USA were working on an SE of that. Then I heard they had finished, so I'm not sure what the craic is there. I just feel for those who sold their German (Dragon) release of Door Into Darkness. I'm glad I decided NOT to cash in on it.

Dream on sunshine! Mind you even if NoShame are still alive and get around to releasing it I dunno if I'd sell mine anyway. I like the artwork, packaging, Luigi Cozzi introduction extras and the booklet (even though I can't speak a word of Deutsch! lol). It also brings back happy memories of returning to England for 3 months in the summer of 2006 . Yeah, this one is a keeper regardless.

You don't have this one in your collection then reaps? If not then you're missing out big time, it's a classic series. I found every episode to be enjoyable and it was great to see some early (pre-Deep Red) Argento.

Here's a good review: http://www.dvdtimes.co.uk/content.php?contentid=11381

I finally got round to watching Strange Vice Of Mrs. Wardh this evening. It's not a bad film but it didn't really do anything that made me say "OH WOW!". It was an entertaining and absorbing entry though and the last 15 minutes were very good. If I had to rank it alongside others in that sub-genre I'd put it somewhere in the middle, maybe slightly higher. I still rate Torso as Sergio Martino's best giallo.

Not even Edwige's masochistic fetish? You're a tough man to please Mr Cloud. I love 'Mrs Wardh'. Not my favourite Sergio Martino/Edwige Fenech collaboration though, ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK beats this one by a country mile though...
