"In an isolated country house at the
end of WWII, German soldiers indulge in orgiastic behavior
with a few whores. One soldier films the perversion but the
filming is brought to an end by allied bombing. In the present
6 teenagers, on their way back from Paris, find the house
deserted. They decide to spend the night.
During the night, the soldier who filmed
the deviant behavior emerges from a mirror and seduces one
of the girls who responds to his violent sexual overtures.
As they try to leave the next day, they find that the attempt
brings them back to the villa. After returning inside, they
find themselves locked in, with the ghosts of Sodom! Stars
and Claudio Aliotti."

The premise of a Fulci movie I haven't
seen is always intriguing, but the thing is, there might be
a reason why I haven't seen it. Perhaps because not all of
Fulci's horror movies are masterpieces.. The acting in this
one isn't especially impressive and the reactions of the people
when strange and supernatural things happen isn't very believable,
no matter how drunk they are supposed to be.. The only scene
in this move that had some suspense was the Russian roulette
scene, in spite of its errors. What annoyed me the most, was
the ending though.. It came way to fast, and it was pretty
lame and uninteresting. On a positive note, there is a little
bit of gore, and some female nudity at least.
In closing, I won't recommend this one unless you're a Fulci
fan like me, because it's always fun seeing the less known
movies of the horror masters. Then it's worth a look!
