A man who married an older woman for her money wants her killed off so he can claim the inheritance and go off with his younger lover, so he gets someone he knows who is a rapist killer to bump her off, but not all goes as planned.

I enjoyed this sleazy Greek Giallo influenced thriller, I can't see it listed as "The Wife Killer" anywhere, I should imagine Mondo Macabro felt uneasy going with that title so maybe invented a new one.

Nope. We didn't invent the title The Wife Killer. It was the original English language export title. The producer told me so! And he ought to know... The Greek title translates as Crime in Cavouri.

Haha....That reminds me of a mate who had some French porno with a horse being sucked off in it...no-one knew the actual title of the film, as it was a 5th gen VHS copy. My mate proudly displayed his own title "HORSE PORNO" on the spine till his girlfriend saw it and wacked him over the head with it..Lol  ;D

good to see some greek exploitation gems like this one getting proper releases. "tango of perversion" was way more original than this, I always considered "the wife killer" a cheap imitation of luigi cozzi's "the dark is death's friend" aka "the killer must kill again", also out by mondo macabro. cheers to pete for those discs! your greek friend. Lefteris.
