The Strange Vice Of Mrs. Wardh [Lo strano vizio della Signora Wardh/Blade Of The Ripper/The Next Victim/Next!]
Superb Giallo about the stylish wife of a stylish diplomat who embarks on a torrid affair with a stylish suitor at the same time as her stylish ex lover reappears causing spontaneous reminiscing on the stylish sado-masochism that they used to indulge in. Of course, being a Giallo, this is just stylish filler between a series of typically stylish straight-razor murders perpetrated on a group of stylish women who exhibit a direct correlation between how short their skirt is and the amount of peril they're in.
