Default SHAM030 - The Strange Vice of Mrs Wardh: The DVD Specs

THE STRANGE VICE OF MRS WARDH


Shameless Screen Entertainment is proud to present The Strange Vice of Mrs Wardh, an absolute, acknowledged classic of giallo cinema. Influential, provocative, and intoxicatingly erotic, this descent into depravity showcases the voluptuous sensuality of the most alluring star of 70’s Italian cinema – the exquisite Edwige Fenech.


Sexy sophisticate Julie Wardh (Fenech) endures a stifling marriage to a distant diplomat (Alberto de Mendoza) in the hope of repressing her perverted past – a sadomasochistic relationship with the sadistic Jean (Ivan Rassimov). Disillusioned with her empty, unloved existence, she succumbs to the amorous advances of suave playboy George (George Hilton) and embarks upon a torrid and passionate affair.

But her happiness may prove short-lived – as Jean makes an unwelcome reappearance, a brutal razor-slasher is making short and very bloody work of the nubile nymphets of Vienna. Could Jean be the sick maniac responsible for the psychosexual slayings? Or does the answer lie somewhere closer, deeper and darker than she could possibly perceive?

Fearing that she too may fall victim to the killer’s blade, tormented, blackmailed and deceived, she spirals into an uncontrollable emotional maelstrom where her deviate desires threaten to reawaken in a welter of sex, sadism and slaughter…

Directed with feverish intensity by genre favorite Sergio Martino (Torso), scribed with serpentine precision by Ernesto Gastaldi, and romantically enriched with the soaring sounds (re-appropriated by Tarantino for Kill Bill 2) of Nora Orlandi The Strange Vice of Mrs Wardh marked the coronation of the undisputed Queen of giallo herself, Edwige Fenech, who melts the screen with burning, unbridled carnality. Lashed with all the unabashed nudity, delicious twists and searing sadism that would define the genre’s excesses of sex and violence, The Strange Vice of Mrs Wardh is an unmatched pinnacle of giallo cinema.


Special Features Include:
  • English audio and optional Italian with English subtitles.
  • All-new 20 minute interview with director Sergio Martino.
  • Introduction by director Sergio Martino.
  • Shameless Fact Track by Justin Harries.
  • Theatrical trailer plus complete Shameless Trailer Park.

I thought that too. I love little facts and so the fact track keeps me well entertained! The film itself is great though so even if you're not an extras-person it's still well worth getting hold of!

You'll be happy to know--if you don't already--that Justin really knows his stuff. You're in for a great read.

Yeah, Justin (FilmBar70) is the most knowledgeable guy I know when it comes to Edwige Fenech. Fans old and new won't be disappointed by his input.

How's her name pronounced? I'm pretty sure it's 'ed-wee-jay fen-eck', but I can't remember off-hand. Also I'm not even entirely sure that is how it's pronounced!

I’m pretty sure it’s Ed-Widge Fen-esh. At least that's how I pronounce it

It's Fen-eck or Fen-ick mate. At least that's how the Italians say it in interviews and news clips I've seen on DVDs and online clips.
