The Camp on Blood Island (1958)
For some reason, this Hammer Studios war melodrama was singled out for constant ridicule by the Monty Python troupe. The story is set at a brutal Japanese POW camp, where sadism is a way of life (the first scene is of a hapless prisoner being forced to dig his own grave).
