Ilsa - Harem Keeper of the Oil Sheiks Reviews
December 15, 2007
As with the first 'Ilsa' movie, the reasonable level of technical competence heightens the nastiness on display. To be fair, this one's a bit more enjoyable because the violence is more cartoonishly ridiculous and the subject matter is slightly less objectionable. The presence and maltreatment of a few Russ Meyer girls (Haji, Uschi Digard, Sharon Kelly, Su Ling) is a striking reminder that, whatever the charges of misogyny levelled at him, Meyer's women usually got the upper hand eventually; they don't here. Unless you've an overwhelming desire to see Haji with her tits in a vice and her foot being eaten by ants, avoid this.

You'll only be able to view it as flippant taboo humor with the talent involved: flippant directing, acting, etc. In this sequel, which I think is an improvement over the predecessor, the taboos are widened but the female sexual objectification, one of the trademarks, is still present: unnaturally large breasts fill the screen, full frontal vag shots are fearlessly displayed, and sexual slavery is a plot essential. There's also an equal amount of kickass and disturbing gore ruining your appetite, much more so than in the first film, and the screenplay is good for a film of this type - there's an array of inventive cruelty throughout.

Not as good as She Wolf of the SS, but good still. The gore is more graphic and more big tits are also shown, but the story is completely falsly based. A lot of funny racial archatypes are portrayed of Arab people.

More erotic then brutal then the first one, but the kills are very disappointing and the acting isn't as good as the first.
Stick with the first unless you feel it is necessary to watch this along with the entire series. I found this boring.

In 1976, our humanitarian friend Don Edmonds returned with this follow up to "Ilsa She Wolf of the SS".
This time Dyanne Thorne returns as Ilsa, to the exotic settings of Africa. Ilsa runs a Harem of sex slaves to the pleasure of her wealthy aristocrat clients. Ilsa and her sexy black bodyguards, Velvet and Satin, run a gruesome terrifying regime of torture, humiliation and slavery.
Ilsa's slaves are kept shackled and locked in chastity belts. At the slave market a woman suffers teeth extraction, as the ugly Sheiks laugh at her misfortune. "I do not like the Scrape of teeth".
I prefer this entry rather than "She Wolf of the SS" and consider it a superior production. The special effects are better and more graphic. Even though Ilsa spends less time in this one bare breasted, it's no way short on sexploitation. Slaves are force fed, and tortured with an exploding penetration vibrator device.
Unlike She Wolf's grim nature, Harem Keeper plays like a more exotic story. The violence is over the top and creative as expected.
Plot Spoiler alert:
People are set on fire, and Ilsa suffers her fate to a pack of sex hungry lepers, and left to starve in an underground dungeon of death.
Great stuff, followed by my favorite of the series,"Ilsa-Tigress of Siberia".

While having a lot in common with its predecessor, this secuel still rocks on its own and gives us some new good moments in the lovely and humane tradition of Ilsa.

I Drink Your Blood- Despite a variety of distinct characters and an inventive premise, the exploitation fails to truly excite and the plotting is erratic in the second half.
The Snowman- A charming little children's tale that does a good job of capturing the artwork of the book.
Santa's Slay- Despite a a promising beginning and a few hilarious moments, the film ultimately suffers from an overall lack of wit, unmistakably failing its potential and instead becoming a bland cliche.
Big Money Hustla$- Fans of the Insane Clown Posse will enjoy this greatly and non-fans will note that it could have been much worse.
Ilsa: Harem Keeper of the Oil Sheiks- Horrible acting and plotting are to be expected in this genre, but the poor quality of the exploitation is what really got to me; nevertheless, you could do much worse in a nudity/violence flick.
