1943: A group of Nazis have an orgy somewhere in France when a bomb is
dropped onto their residence ...
Now: A sextet of teenagers (Claudio Aliotti, Maria Concetta Salieri,
Jessica Moore, Sebastian Harrison, Alan Johnson, Teresa Razzaudi) are on
their way to Paris, but wouldn't you know it, they lose their way and
suddenly end up in front of the Nazi residence that's surprisingly still
intact, and not only that, despite the house being apparently empty, the
table is laid for the six unexpected guests and the wine cellar is simply
fabulous. It's only during the night that virginal Anne (Teresa Razzaudi)
is visited by Willy (Robert Egon), one of the Nazis who died back in 1943,
but that alone isn't too disturbing - especially since she doesn't know
he's supposed to be dead ...
The next day, the kids try to get away from the residence, but fail to
find their way, and when night falls, they end up in front of the house
again. They decide to spend another night in there, but this time they
find themselves suddenly locked in. Then one of them, Mark (Claudio
Aliotti), is visited by Willy the Nazi, who invites him to a combined game
of cards and Russian Roulette to win the charms of a certain lady
(Zora Kerova) - a game which against all expectations Mark wins. But when
he has sex with the certain lady, she starts to decompose - enough to
drive any hot-blooded young male bonkers, and befoe he knows it, he has
fallen down a staircase and hit his head bad enough to die ... and can you
blame him ?
Interestingly the others don't seem to worried about their friend's
death, and Marie (Jessica Moore), the lesbian of the group, once again
tries to seduce Anne, but without any success. Soon enough though, Mark's special
lady proves to her that Marie has sex with Celine (Maria Concetta
Salieri), which drives Marie bonkers, and she almost falls down the same
stairway as Mark did ...
Then, Nazi zombies start to attack and our group of heroes start to
barricade themselves in inside the living room, until ...
Until they all - including Mark - wake up in the ruins of the
residence, and it was all just a dream ...
A very disappointing and incoherent ghoststory with more than its fair
share of sex that quite simply fails to get of the ground and shows above
all else how much Lucio Fulci has either deteriorated or simply lost
interest into the horror genre since his heyday in the early 1980's. Other
than his genre masterpieces like the highly original gothic
trilogy, The Ghosts of Sodom just looks like a very
cheaply made run-of-the-mill Italian sex-horror film based on a script
that simply wasn't thought through and featuring the usual bunch of
undertalented actors. The result is pretty much as sad and bad as this
sounds, but unfortunately not so-bad-it's-good.
