Your Vice Is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key ★★★★½

Jozlyn Recommends 12: The Telltale Cat (I'm sick of rhyming these bloody things)

Well, that was fun. A decaying mansion, despicable people, a cat named Satan, stylish camera work, alluring women, dubbing that veers dangerously close to old kung fu movies at times, J&B around every corner, and more twists than the tangled web of cables behind my television. What's not to love?

I was solidly reminded of Roger Corman's Poe Cycle jams, which is an epic check in the pros column for this one, seeing as how I love those. Although, there was a lamentable Vincent Price deficiency. Nothing I can't cope with, however. The presence of Edwige Fenech goes a long way towards alleviating this particular shortcoming. This is only my second Martino, but I'm starting to see the appeal.
