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
This is some wild and crazy film. There is some dispute as to whether it is a 'giallo' or not but I'm happy to include it, even if it is the ladies doing the killing. Pretty sleazy too, with very colourful depictions of decapitation, rape and extensive use of an acid bath, not to mention b/w 'flashbacks' to nazi gas scenes including numerous naked girls about to take that final 'shower'. The acting is not the finest but then there are moments in this quite delirious movie where you look around the cast and they seem to be suspended in disbelief as to what they are to do next. Indeed, the cast seems to have even less idea who they are or what has happened than we do. Some super décor though and the costumes, especially the brother and sister who get very friendly quite a lot, are out of this world, which is to say 1968-1970 precisely. Don't expect too much coherence but for a good looking and very quirky giallo, this certainly suites me.
