Movie Info

An interesting (if extremely violent) twist on the standard blaxploitation formula, this crime film deals with a black militant-group, led by Charles P. Robinson, whose members decide to clean up their Watts neighborhood by ridding it of white gangsters. Extreme mayhem follows, with slimy Caucasian hoodlums being castrated, shot, and flung from windows, but the black heroes begin overstepping their authority. Soon, they are no better than the mobsters and are even goose-stepping and chanting Nazi slogans, leading the community to revolt. Rod Perry stars, and cult pin-up queen Uschi Digart can be seen as a prostitute.

This was pretty average Blaxploitation fare, as it never quite lived up to the fantastic and eye-catching poster art, but it does feature Charles Robinson (AKA Mac from Night Court) as a particularly menacing character, so that's something you don't see every day. Rental?

It's a great grind house flick, I really hope Tarantino gives this a thought. Since the idea is thought provoking that what if blacks turned against whites or even enslaved them. Back in the 70's this would have been really offensive, but today standards the offensiveness makes this more enjoyable. It could be a much better film if this was remade. Fun film to watch.

The Black Gestapo is one of the most gloriously stupid films I've ever seen. The premise alone about a black militant group modeling themselves after Nazis promises a great deal of humor, but this film takes that ridiculous premise and adds a whole bunch of stupid things into the mix such as romance, sex and nudity, plenty of action scenes, hilariously bad dialogue, gangsters, drugs, back-stabbing, and so much more. This film made me fall in love with it in the same way films like Escape From L.A. and Doomsday by being gloriously idiotic and embracing its campyness to the fullest degree. It's pure, nonstop fun that will have you laughing, saying "What the fuck?" constantly, and feeling a sense of joy from watching so much stupidity unfold. The Black Gestapo is beyond any doubt one of the greatest so bad it's good films I've ever seen.
