Giallo Fever: 'The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh'

16 May 2013 11:00 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

 

An ambassador, Neil Wardh (Alberto de Mendoza), and his wanton wife, Julie (Edwige Fenech), arrive in Vienna for business in the midst of a vicious killing spree that has everyone in a panic. Julie's return to the city rouses memories of former lover Jean (Ivan Rassimov) and their sadomasochistic relationship. It also helps that her husband is utterly dull, busy, and inattentive. The restless Julie has a dark secret that only Jean knows about: blood frightens her, but it also arouses her unimaginably. Julie's cruel ex-boyfriend stalks her and sends unnerving love letters, but she finds comfort at swinging parties and in the arms of another man, George (George Hilton). As the city's body count begins to rise, and a mysterious caller threatens to expose her adulterous and kinky secrets, Julie suspects she's next and that Jean is behind the murders and madness. She escapes to Spain with George for a fresh start, »

'Berberian Sound Studio' – Original Soundtrack Review

17 January 2013 3:00 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

 

  The horror community in general, and fans of European cult horror cinema in particular, have been buzzing like crazy about Peter Strickland's meta-horror film Berberian Sound Studio, which made the festival rounds last summer. Reactions were mixed, to put it mildly, but the flick got a lot of people's attention – especially regarding its faithfulness to Italy's golden era of giallo cinema, a time when directors like Mario Bava and Dario Argento created nightmarish thrillers and murder mysteries with their own brand of disturbed logic and surreal imagery. A critical element of any good giallo is the music, with bands like Goblin breaking free of symphonic and jazz scores and into the domain of progressive rock, with heavy electronic elements that were fresh and new at the time. Berberian recreates the look, feel and sound of that era (the title is a reference to '70s avant-garde composer Cathy Berberian »
