Edwige Fenech is always worth watching. Otherwise, Luigi Pistilli is convincingly horrible, and Anita Strindberg is convincingly s*** upon. I found the twist hard to take...the kind of thing that an actual drunk abusive husband might suspect his wife of being up to. Still, purty.
Mubi fucked this one up for me. Sort of. So, there were these films.. part of a series called Horrific October. And so I was confused as to the director. Fortunately, I came back and re watched it and suddenly realized how horrific it truly was. Shades of the telltale heart. The scene in the abandoned loft. This thing scared me. And excited me. I watched it with my two dogs, and they agree. It's the cat's pajamas
There are particular shots that didn't need to be in the film for it to evolve. The lighting was quite awful being way too dark than needed. The score/music didn't fit the scenes but fit the era. The film was interesting and held my attention. Causally there would be something unrealistic or corny but one can overlook that when considering the time it was made in.
The plot is pretty stupid and the acting is serviceable at best. "Vice" is all about atmosphere. The music is good, it's well directed and features pretty good cinematography. I don't think it's the best work Martino has done but it's still fairly entertaining even if it relies a bit much on naked women to pad the dragging story.
