Storyline

A fleeing felon believes he sees a body being buried in the garden of a Swiss villa one night just before his arrest. Thirteen years later, he's released from prison and comes back, thinking he can blackmail the three people there: a governess and her son, and the daughter of the missing (and presumed dead) owner of the estate. The daughter rules the roost. She may also be unhinged, going into murderous trances when men take her in their arms. Men menace women; sexual assaults are close at hand. Everyone seems to have their own horrifying memories. Is there a mystery to unravel? Will the dying end? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Sleaze dressed as art house and a bore
8 February 2000 | by (Stevenage, England) – See all my reviews

The Salvation films release of ‘In the Folds of the Flesh' has a very misleading cover, showing a leather clad SS vixen who in fact makes no appearance in the film. What you get is a post 1960's sleaze film that is not even all that sleazy by today's standards. It becomes a bore to sit through and you end up not caring for the characters at all who are involved in some form of incest, nazi gas-chamber, decapitation orgy or a murder mystery. There is little gore or explicit scenes though. Nearly everything is implied. Don't bother with this even if you are a fan of 70's exploitation cinema.
