Turkish giallo "Thirsty For Love (Sex and Murder)" is a blatant copy of Sergio Martino's "The Strange Vice of Mrs.Wardh". It is basically a scene-by-scene remake of this classic Italian giallo. It takes the plot of "The Strange Vice" and stretches it out into an almost pure cinematic abstraction. Devoid of suspense it certainly offers a good dose of sleaze and bloody violence towards women. The film is so crazy and wonderfully odd that it's hard not to like this piece of utter delirium. There are some differences between this film and it's inspiration as the plot is simplified and the ending is different.
