"In The Folds of Flesh" Review

Synopsis: 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?

Review: When it comes to tag lines on a DVD case there is no other tag line that is as true as the one on the back of this DVD and that quote is "One of the most bizarre "gialli" of all time". This is truly on of the most bizarre giallo films I have ever seen, this film is filled with plenty of death, incest, and enough twists and turns to make anyone confused. From the start i was drawn into this film because it had a very twistedly perverse story and some pretty acting. Although I did like the story at the same time I found it in a way to be kinda repetitive and what I mean by that is whenever someone finds out or starts to unravel what the family in the film is doing the family simply kills them and the cycle starts all over again. To me it seems like the director was trying too hard to make a bunch of twists in the story. Now beyond that I really did enjoy this film and found it to be one of the most unique giallo films I personally have ever seen. I would highly recommend this film to any fan of giallo and also to those who want to watch a film with a quite taboo element added into the story. I give this film a strong 4 out of 5!
