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>

Alright psychedelic giallo.
18 December 2010 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

The plot of Sergio Bergonzelli's strange "In the Folds of the Flesh" is extremely convoluted,but basically it's about a family residing in an Italian villa who is involved in a series of bizarre sexual encounters and grisly murders.The inhabitants of the house are strikingly odd:Lucille(Eleonora Rossi Drago),her son,his friend Falesse(Anna Maria Pierangeli)and some pet vultures.Falesse was raped by her own father when she was the child.There are some shades of incest,decapitations and also gloriously exploitative flashback set in Nazi death camp.If you like gialli with bizarre narrative and truly off-beat atmosphere of perversion "In the Folds of the Flesh" is a must-see.7 out of 10.
