|Beautiful Edwige Fenech plays Julie Ward, the dissatisfied wife of an international diplomat. Harrassed by a creepy ex-lover, Julie turns to a new beau for pleasure, only to be utterly terrified when a sex stalker begins offing girls around town with a razor blade and seems to be getting closer to her.
Is the maniac her ex-boyfriend, her new lover...possibly even her husband?
Set in Vienna, this attractive giallo by Martino is well done, pulling off a strange twist ending that actually works. Inexplicably for us, Martino as director seems maligned by his Italian contemporaries; yet we find both this and 1974's Torso good, strong examples of the giallo mold. The stunning women alone make these enjoyable and watchable.
Also known by a plethora of alternate titles, such as Next!, The Next Victim, and The Strange Vice of Mrs. Ward.
