Editorial Reviews


In a genre defined by shocking violence and psychosexual kink, it remains perhaps the most over-the-top 'giallo' in EuroCult history: Former MGM starlet and doomed James Dean paramour Pier Angeli - two decades past her Golden Globe award for 'Most Promising Newcomer' and just one year before her tragic death - stars in this ultra-lurid epic packed with decapitations, pet vultures, creepy incest, groovy fashions, cyanide baths, swirly psychedelics, inexplicable plot twists, Nazi death camp flashbacks and more. Eleonora Rossi Drago (CAMILLE 2000), Fernando Sancho (RETURN OF THE BLIND DEAD) and Luciano Catenacci (KILL BABY, KILL!) co-star in the 1970 sickie that would make Freud himself scream in horror, now fully restored from the original Italian vault elements.

3.0 out of 5 stars severin strikes with gory italian shocker January 29, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Severin film company always does a great job remastering older flims.
And this horror flick certainly looks great and even sounds good.
The film itself loosely falls into the giallo genre as it features gruesome murders.
But it is also a horror shocker which features a dysfunctional family living in a villa, a psycho killer who drops by , not that there aren't other killers too. The plot is basically straightforward as the family kills off intruders while trying to retain their deranged lifestyles. There are flashbacks to a NAZI concentration camp even which explains the use of cyanide on a victim. This film was released in 1970 and it has all the wild clothes styles of the year and other aspects that make it a creature of it's time. It would have been seen as very bloody for it's day and it is still a disturbing movie evne if the effects are from 1970. The doomed talented actress Pier Angeli is in this movie and it's one of her last. She had a good future ahead of her as she had scored a role in the 'Godfather"; but she died of a sleeping pill overdose. which was probably a accident. This movie is even more macabre with this knowledge that she had so little time left. This movie features a demented family that is a horror movie staple and it does that job well. It's a decent eurohorror blow budget shocker but Severin needs to grab some traditional Giallos like 'the killer reserved nine seats" as they put out movies that intersect with the giallo genre but have yet to grab a full on giallo. A movie in which a killer takes out people and the audience doesn't know who it is. That being said if you want to see a decent horror/shocker flick from 1970's Europe then this flick should be your cup of cyanide.

4.0 out of 5 stars In The Folds Of The Flesh November 17, 2008
Highly recommended film, full of plot twists and intrigue. Definitely not for the kiddies. You got animal killings, decapitations, flashbacks of cyanide poisonings, etc.. Whatever disturbing thing you can imagine somehow ends up in this film. The transfer is widescreen and not bad for the material. Good value for the buck.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoy this terrible movie February 22, 2009
By River
Just reading the description you would think this is a terribly gross movie. It would be disgusting except for the fact that the special effects are so laughable. It would be morally repulsive except for the fact that the dubbing is so bad. Still, I wonder why Lady Whitehead didn't include this in her video nasties list. I guess she never heard of it.

Unfortunately this disc contains only the English dub. Presumably there are Italian and Spanish soundtracks out there, that might make for a somewhat more serious viewing experience. As it is, it is a good DVD to pop in when some reasonably open minded friends come over. I guarantee there will be many occasions when everybody will rise out of their chairs, look at each other, and say "What???"

2.0 out of 5 stars WHAT. December 23, 2010
In the Folds of the Flesh (Sergio Bergonzelli, 1970)

Weird, quasi-supernatural giallo about a guy who, while trying to evade the law, believes he witnesses the disposal of a body. Thirteen years later, after he's released from prison, he goes back to the same villa and attempts to blackmail the family involved, who are very strange indeed. While they're never willing to admit that anyone was actually killed off, they certainly act guilty; they try to kill their blackmailer every time he turns his back. But he also keeps failing to produce a body... so who's actually got the right of it? Honestly, I couldn't tell you; Bergonzelli, who normally made a living as a softcore director, throws in so many completely unnecessary plot twists in the final fifteen minutes of this movie that the ending becomes a complete, and incomprehensible, mess. Still, for lovers of the perverse, there's more than enough here to keep you occupied for days; there's the seemingly-constant Nazi fetish from early-seventies Italian movies, there's incest, strong hints of pedophilia, rape, acres of drugs, inanimate-object fetishes, the lot. There are a bunch of psychedelic early-seventies flicks that tread this same ground, and most of them are about as incoherent as this one; six, half-dozen, you know. **
