The Nazi exploitation or Naziploitation film genre can be traced back to the early film "The Night Porter" and in typical 70's European film fashion was pushed to limits with films like "Love Camp 7", "Gestapo's Last Orgy", "Beast in Heat" and the epic "Salon Kitty" and various Ilsa clone films like "Desert Foxes" and "Elsa-Fraulien of the SS". These charming films surely offended some people and many of them were banned in some countries.
"Ilsa-She Wolf of the SS" proved that American film makers could come up with an equally political incorrect product. Interestingly "She Wolf" was shot on the set used for tv show "Hogan's Heroes" after the show was cancelled and instead of Col Klink, we have Ilsa as camp commandant. The story is basic: women prisoners are brought in (and stripped for inspection), Ilsa performs experients on them (while they are mostly naked) with her two assistants (hot women who also get naked) later Ilsa helps herself to the male prisoners who are castrated afterwards. Hilariously campy German accents, corny lines (particularly by the male prisoner hero), slightly gorey scenes and of course gratuidous nudity ensure.
"She Wolf" became a classic and three sequels followed, despite the fact Ilsa dies. The second disc is "Ilsa-Harem Keeper of the Oil Sheiks". Replace the two arian assistants from "She Wolf" with sexy black sisters and the women prisoners with new captives for the Harem and theres not much difference between "She Wolf" and "Harem".Read more ›
From what I've heard and read, these movies are textbook examples of 70's grindhouse cinema the likes of which would play in the crime-infested movie houses of NYC's 42nd Street. Watching these films, you can almost feel yourself in the front row of the theatre smelling the marijuana smoke, hoping you don't get mugged, and wondering what exactly those weird sounds are emanating from the rows behind you. In other words, these movies are gutter sleaze that go directly for the shocks and titillation.
Ilsa is played by Dyanne Thorne. For anyone unfamiliar with this actress (as I was), let me just say I was mighty impressed with her talents, both talents to be exact. This was before breast implants were the norm, which adds on extra points for her being a "natural."
The first in the series, Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS is the best of the three. Talk about sick! Basically I would describe all three films as softcore 70's sex with gore and torture scenes, with She Wolf being the most extreme. The films do have plots, but the storylines are almost incidental to the shocking scenes featured within. She Wolf had the most blood and gore, so as a horror fan I appreciated it the most.
Next up is Ilsa: Harem Keeper of the Oil Sheiks. It's pretty amusing how the Ilsa character was updated from WW2 times to the oil-starved 1970's without blinking an eye (or aging). There is really no explanation given for this, which adds to the campy fun.Read more ›
Set in the waning days of the Second World War, "Ilsa: She-Wolf of the SS" unfolds in a medical camp where the brutal commander Ilsa (Dyanne Thorne) and her busty minions wreak havoc on a bevy of female prisoners. There are a few guys around too, mostly to act as boy toys for Ilsa's ravenous appetites. Ilsa's supposed to be conducting experiments on helpless prisoners that will benefit the German military effort, but she's got disturbing side project going on as well.Read more ›

Not a bad entry into the genre... but also not the best... I consider this one to be the weakest of the Ilsa series... Dyanne Thorne was a hot, luscious domineering woman... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Johnny Palliser
Lots of topless nudity. Surprised there wasn't hardly any full frontals. Might have had a couple, but nothing worth viewing.Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
