Deaf mute Helena (Agata Paradiso) is hired as maid at a convent that also has guest rooms, and it's from early on that she thinks something's odd about the place, like why are there hardly any nuns despite the place being vast, and why seems the caretaker, Bruno (Mattika Galantino), almost always near despite the place's size. Of course, there's really something wrong with the convent, as the guests are all killed in pure giallo style, from a professor (Antonio Memeo) and his children (Petra Morena Loseto, Valerio Viti) to a cam girl (Maria Giovanna Tom) to a couple of rock musicians (Liboria Tesoro, Fabio Storm) to two wife killers (Domenico Tacchio, Antonella Genga) to even the wife they failed to kill (Silvia Cuccovillo). Helena tries to find out more, but also falls more and more for Bruno - a feeling that seems to be mutual, but something feels definitely off about Bruno ...

 

The "An Italian Horror Story"-part of this movie's title is definitely accurate as it's a rather charming throwback to giallo cinema from the 1970s, with a combination of an attractive location, gruesome and inventive murders, plenty of suspense setpieces, a somewhat over-convoluted murder mystery woven in, and some psycho-sexual undercurrents carrying the plot - and it works, too, as the film takes a genuine approach to the genre with no attempts at post-modernist re-interpretation or needless update, rather what works for these movies of old stripped down to the bone and adapted for its story and locations. And the result is a very cool and unapologetic horror trip that above all tries (and succeeds) to entertain.
