Exploitation film through and through.
Zero stars. Ultra-violent, it cheapens and glorifies the horrors of the Holocaust and is full of extreme sadism and sickening cruelty. Quentin Tarantino must've been inspired by this crap. It's more of a clichéd 'women-in-chains' hunk of junk and there's plenty of gross extreme violence but there's an even bigger share of T & A to satiate the boorish bondage buffs and just plain porno pundits out there. Nonetheless, it explicitly glorifies an ugly and hideous chapter in human history and reduces it into a sleazy wet dream for the sickos who love to abuse and torture. The shameful abuses of Abu Gharib, the genocides of Yugoslavia, Rwanda, Myanmar - mixed in with input from the Marquis de Sade and you'll see an updated version of this trash. For SMFs only, and I don't throw that acronym loosely.
What can be said about this? Was John Waters too tame for you?
Bored stiff by this one
Soft core porn. I've seen worse. Its mediocre and dumb, but the women are hot.
This may be the worst camp in the whole Third Reich. Although it looks fun in a lot of ways, Ilsa (a sex addicted bombshell) is probably more evil than Hitler himself. This is certainly not your everyday Schindlers List portrayal although it is fact that these more depraved torture techniques were carried out. For Ilsa, the war was her own sexual playground and when a man was unable to please her, it was off with his head. But not his big head. This is as much a story of self control as it is a battle for life.
Mostly boring (especially without subtitles) and extremely campy, even though it does leave its viewers feeling accomplished.
I'd seen this on many lists of famous exploitation, horror, and disturbing films. I thought that it would be one of those films that push the boundaries and it sort of did, but in a very cheap way. Having a bunch of semi naked female nazis performing human experiments on semi-naked prisoners sounds quite bad doesn't it. Unfortunately, this plot, is about as disturbing as it gets. The rest is pretty bad all round. The acting is awful, the screenplay too. As for the horror elements, it's all suggested and not shown, in a lazy way, not for effect.
"You call yourselves men? I see no manhood between your legs!"
Everyone's favourite SS Camp Commander brings her own unique spin on depravity to this list which would be incomplete without her busty, sex mad, sadistic presence.
Ilsa runs a Nazi POW Stalag camp. Her mission is to prove to Nazi German that women have higher pain thresholds than men. Therefore she inflicts evil experiments upon the fair sex to prove her theory. She is also a nymphomaniac who has sex with the male camp prisoners. Inevitably, they fail to sexually fulfil her and she castrates them. However, one American prisoner manages to satisfy her sexually and he exploits a chink in the Ilsa armour.
Ilsa makes for an impressive statuesque villain with her perfect body, gigantic knockers and blonde hair. However the goings on in her camp are so atrociously depraved, it is unlikely you would ever want to watch them. Women get tortured with a sinister black dildo which I think must give off electric shocks. Men are routinely humiliated and castrated. The only time Ilsa gets her dues is when a senior Nazi orders her to urinate on him. The look of disgust on Ilsa's face is priceless. There is sadism and brutality galore in the film. For some reason, Ilsa's 'black widows' (female camp wardens) feel compelled to strip themselves to the waist whilst they flagellate camp inmates. This is just one of several casual depravities that litter Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS. Strong stomachs are a necessity upon viewing.
