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.
