  • Mondo Macabro Releasing In The Folds Of The Flesh

    From their FB page:

    "One of our next three (or four) titles will be the absolutely bonkers Spanish/Italian giallo IN THE FOLDS OF THE FLESH!


    Though we didn't release it on DVD, this movie has "Mondo Macabro" written all over it and always has, and we are very excited to bring you in a brand-new restoration from the original film negative!

    And check out this fab new custom artwork by the always-amazing Justin Coffee!

    Likely will go on sale at the end of August! More details will be revealed in the coming weeks!"

    Another great choice. I remember the Severin DVD being very good so it will be interesting to see what kind of upgrade the blu-ray brings. Because of the film's nature, I wonder how it will hold up to repeated viewings.

      Do you want incest? Do you want nazis? Do you want sex mad criminals? Do you want death by cuckoo clock? Then You want #inthefoldsoftheflesh

        Is this watchable? I haven't seen it in a long time. Not sure when but it would have been on the Redemtpion VHS which I guess puts that viewing as ancient history. My memory at the time was that it was terrible. Did young me something?

          Dom, my only viewing was as an adult and I enjoyed its craziness. The dvd was an interlaced and possibly overscanned mess, so I'm looking forward to an upgrade.

            Coming to LE Blu-ray in September! One of the wildest and most un-hinged of all gialli! Sergio Bergonzelli’s IN THE FOLDS OF THE FLESH!

            Night-time. A peal of thunder. A castle by the sea. A severed head rolls across a carpeted floor. A blood-stained sword lies next to it…
            Meanwhile police are in hot pursuit of a criminal who is evading capture on a speeding motorbike. He takes refuge in the overgrown castle grounds. And he sees a dark-haired woman burying a corpse in a shallow grave. 13 years later, after being recaptured and serving his sentence, the man returns to the castle, intent on blackmail. And maybe a few other things.

            The above synopsis only covers the first few minutes of this wild psychedelic nightmare. Frequently described as one of the craziest of all Italian “giallo” thrillers, In the Folds of the Flesh is all that and more. Several dismembered heads are featured. Visitors arrive at the castle, only to be murdered in a variety of gruesome ways. Characters turn out not to be who they said they were… incest, madness, flashbacks, Etruscan skeletons and even a Nazi death camp are all woven into the fabric of the film.
            A sterling cast, led by dueling divas Pier Angeli and Eleonora Rossi Drago, liven up the proceedings and make this one of the most entertaining films of its genre. This is a world Blu-ray premier restored from the original negative.

                Got around to rewatching this today. Not on MMs swanky new BluRay but on a copy that still looked a hell of a lot better than my old Redemption VHS. What a wild movie! Teenage me must have had no taste at all or else was simply not ready for this. Very well made for such an utterly tasteless, bonkers film. Sits well beside other wtf giallo like Deliro Caldo. Actually if you'd told me this was a Polsell film i would have believed you.
