HELL CAMP is exactly what it is . . . HELL!!!!!!! (The titular Beat in Heat is a Dwarf-Monster-Guy who's kept in a cage and rapes the women; its disgusting.) . . they are trying to be worse than ILSA SHE WOLF OF THE SS and they don't succeed. IMAGINE THIS ON THE BIG-SCREEN . . . I think I'd throw-up. its a ONE HUNDRED PERCENT FRESH FOR SURE!!!!! (it will ALWAYS BE HELL and won't go stale over time)
My first taste of 'nazisploitation' and it turned out to be just as bad, sleazy and tasteless as I expected it would be. Had this not been a 'video nasty' I never would have been interested to begin with. This particular slice of trash-cinema takes place in nazi occupied Italy during a Partisan uprising against the increasing brutality of a Nazi encampment which has been conducting unsavoury human experiments in its aim of creating a master race. The majority of the films' runtime focuses on the Italian rebels launching attacks and ambushes on Nazi forces, so if you're expecting endless scenes of torture and other gruesomeness you will be left disappointed. Of course there is the expected sex, nudity, rape and other sexual violence which is what caused its banning in the UK and it's unlikely ever to get released in the near future. No gore in this one either sadly, just a couple of brief bloody moments during a torture session at around the one hour mark. The action scenes prove to be the most entertaining parts of the film for all the wrong reasons - they're so lame and cheesy it's hilarious! And the bad English dubbing adds it's own entertainment value. Terrible film overall, but one to have fun with.
I can'r say I am an expert in Nazi-sploitation cinema, but this one is apparently the Citizen Kane of that subgenre. This film is full of savage rape and ludicrous cruelty. Dr. Krast is a hot young Nazi scientist who has created a man-beast with an unsatiable urge to rape the lovely young girls thrown in his cage. This is on ly a subplot though, and one of the few that make sense. What all this has to do with the war is anybody's guess as the rest of the film is a muddy mess, probebly due to the film containing footage from other movies as well as stock footage. This is a mild complaint though, because plot is certainly not why people watch this kind of stuff. People watch this kind of stuff to see Nazi soldiers steal a baby from a woman on the street, throw it up in the air, and shoot it with a machine gun. Yes sir, this movie has plenty of stuff like that as well as lengthy rape scenes, killing children, and eating pubic hair - fully passing the realm of restraint. There is no taboo left unexplored, but I guess that is what exploitation cinema is all about. Somehow this gem lacks the appeal and shock of the cannibal subgenre and just feels like it is missing something. If you fancy yourself a person who cannot be offended and who can sit through anything, this may be your film. If you are some one who demands integrity or taste in your cinema, you should probably steer clear.
