Shameless, who have recently made waves by releasing Enzo G. Castellari’s post apocalyptic trilogy (The Bronx Warriors, Escape From the Bronx and The New Barbarians) uncut and restored within the UK, just announced that they will be releasing the beloved The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh. There’s no news yet on features, artwork or anything of that sort but considering the work that these guys have been doing and their deep relationship with their fans, this is a release worth keeping your eyes out for! A quick synopsis for the film, as posted in the Cult-Labs newsletter:
An ambassador’s wife discovers that one of the men in her life – either her husband, an ex-lover or her current lover – may be a vicious serial killer. This beautiful hypnotic film depicts a series of grisly murders, the victims of which all have some connection to our heroine, Mrs. Julie Wardh (the stunning queen of 1970’s Italian Giallo cinema: Edwige Fenech). Voted one of the top Giallos ever, not only for its surreal S&M imagery – featuring plenty of suspense, sleaze, nudity and gruesome killings – but also because it this is the film which placed Edwige Fenech (Strip Nude For Your Killer) in the hearts of besotted fans around the world.
Shameless really listens to their fans, literally. This is being released simply because of fans recommending it. That is a distribution company my friends! Keep an eye on the official thread via their forum for updates as they come rolling in!
