Audience Reviews for The Black Gestapo


Wow, definetly a product of the time. The subject matter should be taken with more grains of salt than I can count. This sucker is through and through exploitation fare.
This is the first film I've seen by Lee Frost and Wes Bishop and it's about a group of african-americans in Watts that make their own people's army to defend against the white oppressors. For a 70s B-action shocker this holds nothing to dissapoint with it's fair share of violent, and for those who are concerned, there's more breasts than blood in this, and there's a bit of blood.
The last 15 minutes really takes it home although the entire film is directed pretty interestingly and entertainingly.
This doesn't fall into normal blaxploitation subject matter so it's hard to categorize it as so, but if you are a fan of psychotronic cinema see it.

Super Reviewer

Eh, I was kinda disappointed. But for this kinda movie, I'm surprised I didn't get totally disappointed. Some pretty grim violence, a very generic score, a couple of good pairs of teets, and some general good scene-chewery. Plus, one VERY creative and well-executed killing (I won't give it away, but you'll know it when you see it) that happens part way through the film (so know it's not the buckshot gag at the end) really really sold me on the picture. And hey, a rapist gets his balls cut off and flushed down the toilet! This movie's all right. :D
