View Full Version : The Nazisploitation Thread

OK, so I was re-reading the last issue of Cinema Sewer the other day, just because, and Robin's article on Nazisploitation got me thinking about some of these movies again. I haven't watched any in a while. I went on sort of a kick with them years back and saw most of the big titles and found that a lot of them just didn't really do it for me.

Now, part of this is probably due to family history. My Grandmother lived in Holland during the Nazi occupation and has no shortage of real life horror stories to tell about this period of her life. I think when I watch stuff like this that part of my brain consciously or subconsciously pulls this to the forefront and so I don't necessarily see the appeal because I'm aware that someone I care about in my family dealt with this in the real world. I don't necessarily get offended or want these movies to be banned or anything reactionary like that, I just maybe get more uncomfortable than I would with, say, a Japanese movie dealing with rape and torture. Even though the content may be the same, the specific historical and geographical setting sets it apart in my mind.

But then there's the more ridiculous side of the genre that appeals to me. The overacting, the cliche characters, and of course, the trashiness of it all. I can and do see the appeal of the taboo here, and the fetishy takes on the uniforms and what not.

With that said, between my wife and I we sure do own a lot of this stuff. Physical copies of most of the known titles are in our collection, everything from early low budget entries like Love Camp 7 to more epic interpretations like Salon Kitty - even a signed copy of the Ilsa set autographed by Dyanne Thorne and Don Edmunds (RIP!).

Some of the films in the cycle are too goofy to take seriously and those can be pretty funny - others get really scuzzy. Some of the American made XXX entries are the scuzziest I think.

Thoughts on the genre? Favorites? Least favorites?

Discuss!

Great post, Ian. I know what you're talking about with your personal reaction to the Naziploitation films. I don't have the connection you do, so I've never had the same reaction. On the other hand, in 2005 I was part of a research team that spent several weeks observing trials at the International War Crimes Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. I sat in on the trial of Milosevic and several others and heard absolutely harrowing testimony (and saw a video I'll never forget.) As a consequence, I have absolutely ZERO interesting in seeing A Serbian Film. I know it's not set during the conflict, but it definitely draws on the national memory of it and there's no way I could watch it without placing it in that context.

As for naziploitation, I too have quite a few of these -- even though the ones that I've really enjoyed are definitely the minority.

Far and away my favorite is Salon Kitty. Helmut Berger is awesome, Teresa Ann Savoy is crazy sexy and the set design from Ken Adam is incredible. That's probably why I've bought so many is I keep looking for another that's anywhere near that good (and haven't come close to finding one.)

Probably next up, in terms of my enjoyment, was Gestapo's Last Orgy. Least favorite I've seen was Nathalie Escape from Hell -- which was a boring Eurocine paint-by-numbers entry.

We all go through a subgenre period where we have to see all of the infamous titles of a certain niche. Such as Midgetsploitation, Brucesploitation, CAT III movies, Mexsploitation, etc. Nazisploitation is no different and while I haven't seen all of them I consider myself having seen enough of them if that makes any sense. I think I watched one NYC Nazi roughie and it's just not for me. The only old porns I watch are Joe D'amato porno's or something really ott and funny like Hardgore, Driller, and Bat Pussy.

Of the Nazisploitation films I watched, I found most of them to be pretty boring with nothing much happening until the 3rd act. Softcore Nazi porn alone just doesn't do much for me. But there's a couple I do like:

Ilsa. Natch. Does anything need to be said about Ilsa at this point? I like the first film but Harem Keeper was better. She Wolf tried to play it straight -excluding the pissing scene- but Harem Keeper fully embraces the camp in almost a wink wink nudge nudge kind of way, but it wasn't obnoxious about it.

S.S. Experiment Camp. Only reason I'm including this is the line "You bastard, what have you done with my balls." pretty average piece of Eurotrash.

Beast in Heat aka S.S. Hell Camp. Now we're talking! This one is so ott despite a middling 2nd act and constant barrage of stock footage from an incomplete Italo WW2 flick. The slowness is made up for by how batshit crazy the film is. This is one of the few I recommend.

Gestapo's Last Orgy. This starts out pretty well but descends pretty far down the toilet of Eurotrash. Love the scene where the Nazi threatens the girl with a tank of gerbils.

S.S. Camp 119. Not only the best of the Nazisploitation films but probably Bruno Mattei's best film. No lie. The direction is pretty good. The dialog is as grim as it goes and 99% free of cheesy dialog you expect from a Bruno movie. The effects are realistic. I also like the fact that the Germans speak German without subtitles. It doesn't get cheesy up until the last 5-10 minutes but by that point the experience has been so grim and depressing it's difficult to laugh. Good film. Not just good for being Exploitation/Eurotrash. But I would argue genuinely good.

I have most of them too, and recently revisited several. GESTAPO'S LAST ORGY is by far the most interesting one imo. Too many of them are just plain boring. You get loads and loads of tedium offset by an occasional shock or gross-out - hello, BEAST IN HEAT. They're too ridiculous to offend me though I can definitely understand why some would find them off-putting, and someone who has close ties to the real life horror of the Nazis certainly is justified in not seeing the appeal.

That said, Mattei's SS GIRLS is a pretty solid entry too, that one and Sergio Garrone's entries are worth seeing at least once if you're interested in the genre.

Although overall I think it's one of the weakest genres in Italian exploitation cinema, it's also one of the most fascinating in terms of wondering what in the world was going through the heads of the people who made these films. The very fact the genre exists is bizarre.

Oh, and I reckon THE NIGHT PORTER is my absolute favorite, it actually has gives you a bit more to think about than the average prison camp shocker.

Beast In Heat is awesome, that gorilla monster guy is too much.

I always liked the title Caligula Reincarnated As Hitler over Gestapo's Last Orgy (No more orgies? That's sad!) but either way you slice it, it's decent.

The Ilsa movies are in a class all their own somehow. There's a rad XXX knock off called Libriana Bitch Of The Black Sea but she's not a Nazi, she's a Russian so it doesn't count. ABA put it out.

Boris Lugosi aka Salvatore Bacarro! He's like a lumpier Ron Jeremy if that's even possible...was in some spaghetti westerns and of course FRANKENSTEIN'S CASTLE OF FREAKS.

My great uncle was in the S.S. And I must confess to always admiring the style of their uniforms. No soldiers have ever looked as good since. Hugo Boss knew what he was doing.

Also, any film with nazis or a nazi theme somehow becomes worthwile, these exploitation titles included. Very strange phenomenon that.

My grandmother told me that as a young girl seeing the S.S. march down her street was nothing short of amazing and that they looked incredible. Of course, once the occupation was in full swing and the population was being terrorized, it was a different story.

Is Garrone's SS Camp: Women's Hell worth seeking out? I don't think I've seen it.

Nice cover art.

Just watched this. Its a bit of a dud. The weakest of the 3 films in the Shriek Show SS pack I - not as hilarious as SS GIRLS or as disturbing as Garrone's other entry SS EXPERIMENT LOVE CAMP. The fire setting is nasty but the rest is just boilerplate. I like the opening prolog with the documentary shots but it is a little too sombre for trash like this.

Horace Cordier

Whats interesting about this genre is its respectable roots. THE NIGHT PORTER has exploitative elements, but like another arthouse shocker - Pasolini's SALO, it is really also a deeply artistic film.

Todd G
12-01-2012, 01:34 AM
While THE NIGHT PORTER & SALO & even SALON KITTY to a certain degree are the arthouse roots of this subgenre- i'd say that they probably owe more to LOVE CAMP 7 than any of the aforementioned films

Randy G
12-01-2012, 09:24 AM
SALON KITTY is my favourite. I think THE DAMNED by Visconti also had an influence on the genre (Thulin appears in this and SALON KITTY), although like NIGHT PORTER and SALO it is head and shoulders above the films in the subgenre, not that it's perfect or free of exploitation elements either.

Andrew Monroe
12-01-2012, 01:08 PM
Yeah, Ian, I would say SS EXPERIMENT LOVE CAMP is the stronger of Garrone's nasty nazis. WOMEN'S HELL has its moments but it's not as good.

I think RED NIGHTS OF THE GESTAPO is an above average one, forgot to mention that. Where else you gonna see the moving bit where a nazi farts into a hidden microphone?

Ian Jane
12-01-2012, 02:16 PM
Red Nights definitely has its moments, bizarre ones at that.

And I'm with Todd G on this - Love Camp 7 kickstarted the trashy Nazisploitation trend. The other artier pictures probably had an influence but they're pretty high brow. Even something like Salo, which leaves little to the imagination, has a point outside of exploitation. Love Camp 7 is pure trash.

Did any of these Nazisploitation movies ever overstep the mark TOO far?

Just wondering, as the ones I have seen range from hilarious...to boring...

Nothing that reached the heights of the WW2 Japsploitation (maybe a bit offensive there!!) movies like MEN BEHIND THE SUN??

Ian Jane
12-02-2012, 11:31 AM
Yeah, Men Behind The Sun takes things to a much nastier level than any of the Italian entries I've seen. I don't know of any that go that far and remain reasonably serious.

Alison Jane
12-02-2012, 11:41 AM
I also have not seen Men Behind the Sun in a long time. Apparently so since I didn't remember it being about Nazis! Another one to rewatch.

Ian Jane

Sorry for confusing you....

I was just wondering if any NAZISPLOITATION movies were as nasty as men behind the sun....

Well, there's Pasolini's SALO, isn't there? :)

I thought GESTAPO'S LAST ORGY overstepped the mark, for me at least. There's some tastelessness in there that's not moderated by the camp (pardon the pun) excesses of the likes of THE BEAST IN HEAT. The baby-eating made that film cross the line for me. LE SVASTICA NEL VENTRE is unrelentingly grim too, imo, with some out-of-place h/c footage.

I suppose that, SALO aside, the Nazisploitation equivalent of MEN BEHIND THE SUN is IN A GLASS CAGE.

GESTAPO"S LAST ORGY has some tastelessness, but it doesn't really keep it going all film (as far as I remember)...

LE SVASTICA NEL VENTRE I have never heard of......and IN A GLASS CAGE has a reputation that makes me not brave enough to watch it (and I dont think I would call it NAZISPLOITATION....in the truest sense of the word!)

Yep, IN A GLASS CAGE is borderline Nazisploitation, in that it takes place after the war. It's definitely worth watching though.

GESTAPO'S LAST ORGY is intermittently tasteless, padded out with high melodrama.

LE SVASTICA NEL VENTRE was given the English-language title of NAZI LOVE CAMP 27, IIRC.

Ian Jane
12-03-2012, 10:09 AM
Not familiar with Le Svastica Nel Ventre - will look into that. As far as In A Glass Cage goes, yeah, it's borderline. It deals with the repercussions of one man's actions during the war but doesn't really take place during the war. Sukeban Boy, you should give it a watch, it's a great movie. The Cult Epics Blu-ray release is the one to get. It's definitely a horror film but an arty one, I wouldn't say it's really exploitative at all.

sukebanboy
12-03-2012, 10:12 AM
I might well give it a watch..

The thing that stopped me watching it so far is that I heard it is pretty bleak...Now i am all for exploitation and violence and other stuff.....But the bleak stuff just kills me.......

Ian Jane
12-03-2012, 10:20 AM

Then there is the utterly DOWNER depressing bleak...which I fear is what IN A GLASS CAGE will be like.....:puke:

Coming 5/21/13 from Full Moon...

Full Moon's Grindhouse Collection.

In a remote village in occupied Europe, the SS pursue their inhuman treatment of captured partisans in efforts to force them to betray their comrades... while Fraulein Krast, a sadistic biologist, concentrates her efforts on the womenfolk with refined tortures and humiliation, leaving them to the mercy of a sex-crazed half-man, half-beast she has created with experimental injections.

And as advancing Allied forces approach the village, Krast herself becomes a victim of her own fiendish rituals.

Thinking about this, has anyone ever read HOUSE OF DOLLS by Ka-Tzetnik 135633? I picked up a copy years ago and flicked through it but never read it from cover to cover. For the unaware, it's presented as a memoir by a concentration camp survivor (actually the author's sister, supposedly) focusing on the lives of the women forced to work in the Joy Divisions/concentration camp brothels.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/1d/House_of_dolls_cover.jpg

I've often wondered how much of this influenced Brass' SALON KITTY (aside, obviously, from its roots in the story of the 'real' Salon Kitty). Is HOUSE OF DOLLS, published in 1955, the first example of/progenitor of the Nazisploitation cycle? From my recollection of the portions of the book that I read, a lot of the tropes of the Nazisploitation films are present in HOUSE OF DOLLS. Has anybody ever read the whole thing from cover to cover.

2 year bump!

So last night the Philadelphia Psychotronic Film Society, a film club that gets together once a month at the Philadelphia Mausoleum of Contemporary Art to watch a film showed Gestapo's Last Orgy and hilariously 23 people got triggered and walked out. Some interesting comments in this Facebook thread: https://www.facebook.com/philadelphiapsychotronicfilmsociety/posts/343929135977450

I can see people in their early 20s or so, possibly, not being familiar with Nazisploitation films & certainly not finding them "entertaining" but based on the title, you'd think they would get the picture or do some quick research.

Whoa, reading things like these sometimes makes me question myself. If normal people, albeit presumably film lovers of some kind, react like this, what the hell is wrong with me. It also makes me question why normal people attend something with the word 'psychotronic', if they don't want to be challenged and have their mind altered in some way.

It does make for an interesting thought experiment to contemplate what the reaction would have been if they would've shown Saló instead. Would people be as offended, or is it more okay as it's a Pasolini high art film instead of exploitation fare?

Alex K.

Regarding advance warning of extreme content: as the event host I do feel responsible for not providing such a thing for Monday night’s film and am very sorry. Some people say it was the audience's choice to gamble on a surprise film, others say that explicit content is implied in the group's name, others just want a simple warning in the future. Here’s how we’ll proceed based on everyone’s feedback: no one is required to give advance warnings on the content of a film just as no one is required to introduce a film, though many comments below encourage both practices. Programmers are welcome to choose to give pre-screening details and/or warnings of any length/variety, some will see this as a common courtesy, and these will be posted on the event pages. These notes will assist members in judging whether or not that screening is for them. In the instances of a programmer declining to provide details or warning, a stance that was adopted by many below, then a standard message will go on the event page stating “The programmer has declined to provide details on this film, extreme content possible, viewer discretion advised”. So the event pages that have that message may contain extreme content, if you’re worried you can choose to stay away from those, while other pages will have advance details and warnings that will help you determine if that screening is for you.

^^Now we have to give adults content warnings. Basically adults are requesting to be treated like children. How embarrassing.

Mindy Moore is ashamed to be associated with "guys looking to show people their favorite rape film". I wouldn't want to hang with a crowd that begs for content warnings to save them from a film that could upset them.

Allow me to be the contrarian for a moment, but I do think a warning would probably be a wise move if you're going to be showing a naziploitation film, arguably the most reprehensible subgenre in history. I'll admit that I've seen most of them myself - and even enjoyed some of them - but it's not like somebody sprung them on me with no warning and I think most of us would agree that - even among us - the films are vile and pretty much indefensible. Even if it is a psychotronic film club, I think it was naive of the programmers to just throw it on and not expect some controversy (and walkouts); they had to have expected that.

Alex K.
12-01-2016, 03:51 PM
I have to disagree. I don't think any of them are "vile and indefensible" most of the films are nothing more than a glorified WIP movie but with Nazi's. Now, if the movies were pro-Nazi then you'd have a point. But I can't think of a single film that does that. Closest you could get to that are -ironically- the two "serious" films in the genre Night Porter and Salo where the Nazi's don't get their comeuppance. Not that I agree that they are pro-Nazi but someone could make the argument.

And technically there is a warning for content because they don't allow anyone under the age of 18.

I assume that had the programmers shown I Spit On Your Grave that an equal number of people would have been "triggered."

Edit: I remember (this is years ago before all this SJW nonsense became a thing) seeing Cannibal Holocaust during it's revival run and I recall several people -mostly women- walking out on it. Cannibal Fucking Holocaust. To those people I have to ask: what were you expecting? The movie is called CANNIBAL FUCKING HOLOCAUST. It's not going to be a fun cheesy romp that you get to laugh at and feel superior to.

I could understand giving a warning if they were locking the doors but people are free to leave if they are offended. There are films I would refuse to sit and watch but I certainly wouldn't cry or demand change. It's the difference between the "safe space" crowd and those that appreciate freedom.

Ian Jane
12-01-2016, 05:16 PM
I see both sides here. Throwing Nazism into the mix rubs people the wrong way sometimes, myself included (I have family that survived WWII and could tell you some pretty horrible stories). Even if the movie's aren't pro-Nazi they are exploiting what people went through. Would I have walked out? No, not at all, I own most of these movies and know that they're just that - movies and nothing more - but I do see why in this case some people might take offense to it, particularly if their own personal background might tie into the theme.

But this type of thing can obviously be taken to ridiculous extremes. You go to psychotronic screenings expecting a certain amount of button pushing (at least you should) and 'shocking content.' If you then don't like said shocking content, well, that's really on you. A fair degree of personal accountability is required here. Like Jason says, you can always leave if you don't like what you're watching.

Agreed. This is why I don't start these kinds of discussions with regular folks; they tend to always get out of hand and, eventually, downright absurd. I felt safe enough bringing up my issues with the naziploitation genre on this forum because I know we all get it and we're all aware that their are no cry babies or moral crusaders here. I'm not personally offended by the naziploitation films, but I am aware that they're morally questionable and tasteless, hence my not being surprised at the outrage that the screening of GESTAPO'S LAST ORGY caused. We can't expect regular film fans (or even newbie exploitation fans) to embrace every one of these sick flicks the way that we have for all these years.

Reading those FB comments in this particular instance, I thought the so-called "crybabies" communicated in a much more empathetic & reasonable manner. Some of them were merely trying to communicate why they felt their negative reactions and certain life experiences which may or may not have informed them.

I think the people who attacked them were the close-minded reactionaries in this instance.

Ex:
PERSON A: "I'm sensitive to certain subject matters, it's not fun to be caught off guard by a surprise screening of a film that reminds me of traumatic incidents."
PERSON B: "Fucking SJW crybabies like you are out to ruin Psychotronic Film Culture, and I negatively presume your agenda is to censor my rights as a psychotronic filmgoer. If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the rape kitchen. Go back to MST3K where you belong. You're not a true fan of psychotronic cinema unless you're willing to endure anything and everything projected your way."

(Fuck me Jesus...) Sorry. One of the things I have difficulty stomaching is people who respond to humanistic posts like ruthless politicians interpreting any alternate viewpoints as dissent to be quashed & humiliated.

Which is why it's a good thing I'm no longer on FB. Everything becomes politicial on social media. Politics is the death of art. :clint:

Years ago, I used to show GOODBYE UNCLE TOM annually as part of a module about censorship that I taught on a degree programme. Never had anyone walk out though ;)

I can only think of a handful of films I've seen at the cinema where people have walked out for reasons other than the fact that the film was terrible (eg, BATMAN AND ROBIN): MAN BITES DOG, during the rape scene; NATURAL BORN KILLERS (this was more to do with the aesthetic than the violence); THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY (owing to the fact that the print was the heavily cut BBFC 'X' version from the mid-1960s and was also in terrible shape, to boot); IRREVERSIBLE (natch).

Those kinds of comments are more a reflection on social media and the types of discourse it engenders than anything else. To my mind, Facebook is just like a school playground without any teachers on charge to monitor the bullying/playground violence/namecalling/smoking behind the bikesheds, etc. That, and the privacy issue, is why I have never (and will never) have anything to do with it.

On the other hand, thinking about this more widely and based on some experiences I've had at work recently, people with limited life experience being offended on behalf of another social group or about representations of things of which they very often have limited cognisance seems to be something very current, and I'd say that it's been created (at least in part) by the extent to which 'on demand' media allows people to become locked into their own tastes, their experience of culture being cocooned - and therefore it's more of a shock to the system when they encounter something outside that narrow field of experience. So somebody visiting an event such as this may have a restricted (or you might say, naive) idea of what to expect. It's not their 'fault', perhaps, but just a sign of the times.

I learned a long time ago that there will always be kvlt elitists who claim to speak on behalf of an entire subgenre or subculture. And not to gauge your fandom by their standards.

To quote what Matt H said a few posts back:
I felt safe enough bringing up my issues with the naziploitation genre on this forum because I know we all get it I agree. I felt comfortable registering here because I perceived RSP to treat cult movie fans as individuals, not like we're some sort of borg collective. No "party-line" attitude I sense here. (There are some messageboards where you're expected to be overtly Left-wing or Right-wing.)


I saw people walk out of Irreversible as well, and Miike's Visitor Q. My attitude toward walkouts became much more lenient after seeing IRREVERSIBLE on the big screen. As I endured the entire film, I questioned my prior snobbish attitude of "Hah! Look at the cowards flee!" I found myself considering that maybe the joke was on me, that "Maybe there's no shame in walking out on a filmmaker who's pissing in your face." I already had that philosophy with Michael Bay & Roland Emmerich, but it was the first time I applied it towards a filmmaker of arthouse endurance tests. ("Noe Means No")

Well, I can't speak for anyone else, but I prefer to watch my Nazisploitation pictures whilst dressed as a member of the Schutzstaffel, and I also demand to be waited on by beautiful maidens dressed like Dyanne Thorne in ILSA, SHE WOLF OF THE SS.

Seriously, I can't think of any subgenre more anti-fascist than the Nazisploitation pictures - whilst the films themselves fetishise the iconography (the uniforms, etc).

I've never walked out of a picture, but I've fallen asleep in protest during a couple of screenings: Joel Schumacher's BATMAN & ROBIN being the most famous - not just a case of Schumacher pissing in your face, but a case of Schumacher pissing in your mouth after drinking a gallon of Day-Glo liquid.

I've had a bunch of exrental VHS releases of nazisploitation films sitting on my shelves for years on end without ever having watched them. Well, except for the ILSA films, I've watched those but probably mainly because of Dyanne Thorne. :p I did try and watch a couple of them more than a decade ago but turned them off (or fell asleep) because I found them to be incredibly boring.

I've just got a new TV and a couple of nights ago I was checking my tapes to find something to watch and my eyes caught the olde nazi exploiters on the shelf so I pulled out Sergio Garrone's SS CAMP WOMEN'S HELL and, lo and behold, not only did I not fall asleep or want to throw something heavy at the screen, but I was entertained. Not entertained as if I'd watched THE EVIL DEAD II or similar, but in a sleazy ol'e grindhouse cinema manner. I have no idea what caused the difference. Old age maybe. Haha.

Btw, to comment on something Ian said early on in this thread; Via family I've got personal experience with the war as well: My mum (who was my biological grandmother i.e. my mum's mum) was a young adult in occupied Denmark during the war. When I grew up she would tell us many a story about life during the war and what it was like. But even so I have no problem with these films or their contents (having said that I do reckon the real footage of dead bodies that was used in SS CAMP WOMEN'S HELL was in poor taste but that's got nothing to do with this particular war).

But even so I have no problem with these films or their contents (having said that I do reckon the real footage of dead bodies that was used in SS CAMP WOMEN'S HELL was in poor taste but that's got nothing to do with this particular war).

As a young man of 17/18, my late grandfather was at the liberation of one of the concentration camps (Belsen or Dachau, I can't remember which offhand) and was haunted by his memories of that place. (He was of a generation that didn't talk at length about his past, and especially traumatic events, but every so often he would relate something very vividly, like the consequences of US troops kindly giving their chocolate rations to the liberated prisoners, which the US troops were unaware would simply destroy the digestive tracts of the starving men and women; British troops, he said, were under strict command not to give any food to the prisoners.) However, he always looked upon these films with bemusement, because they are so far removed from reality as to be unrecognisable as a representation of the reality of the events they allude to, being much more like absurdist comic books (in truth, they have much in common with the fumetti). To see them as a depiction of the events of the war is like saying Spaghetti Westerns are an accurate depiction of life in the West.

All of which isn't to say that people can't take offence at the films, but that if they are offensive, it's because of a variant number of factors and is in the eye of the beholder.

I think, Jack, like you say, when the films use archival footage of the camps, they're playing in a different league, however.

Great post, Paul. It's kind of hard to take most of the movies seriously. Especially the killer guinea pigs in Gestapo's Last Orgy.

I'm sad that the Ilsa/Bruce Li film never happened.

I'm guessing the original three have rights issues as the second one showed up on Blu Ray in Italy (it's an upscale) with the other two MIA. All three were releaesd in Germany on Blu Ray, and all are upscales too, so I wonder about their legitimacy. Oddly enough, of the three German ones, only the second is English friendly, so I'm not sure why the other two don't have the English tracks which could have easily been ripped off from previous releases if it wasn't some licensing thing (which may indicate they're not bootlegs afterall)?

Has Tigress ever had a decent release? I have the ancient Japanese (fogged) DVD and that German Blu, both of which are not from good quality prints (and 4:3), but I know it did get other releases which I haven't seen. The AB discs are still the way to go, shame the third was never released by them.

More than four decades after the subgenre first shocked the world, the most depraved Nazisploitation sickie of them all must still be seen to be believed: Writer/director Luigi Batzella (THE DEVIL’S WEDDING NIGHT, NUDE FOR SATAN) combines footage from two earlier WWII action movies with a newly-shot plot featuring a sadistic female Nazi officer (Macha Magall of Bruno Mattei’s SS GIRLS), a perpetually aroused caged ogre (Salvatore Baccaro aka ‘Boris Lugosi’ of FRANKENSTEIN’S CASTLE OF FREAKS), and a cavalcade of sexual atrocities that Horror-Extreme.com calls “tasteless and glorious…it gathers all the ethos of the genre and smashes it into a wonderfully hellish mix.” Never released in America and banned as a ‘Video Nasty’ in the UK, this notorious feast of smut-schnitzel is now scanned from 35mm negative elements with a blitzkrieg of all-new Special Features.

Special Features:

Fascism On A Thread – The Strange Story of Nazisploitation Cinema: A new feature length documentary featuring interviews with Dyanne ‘Ilsa’ Thorne, Malissa ‘Elsa’ Longo, Filmmakers Sergio Garrone, Mariano Caiano, Rino Di Silvestro, Liliana Cavani, Bruno Mattei and many more.
Nazi Nasty: Interview with Stephen Thrower, Author of MURDEROUS PASSIONS

I saw this on VHS under the SS Hell Camp title when I was a kid. I think this is the one where the mutant dude eats pubic hair.

I like this film. Would really like Severin to release more Italian nazi sickness on bluray. Women's Camp 119 is long overdue an official DVD or BD release, and would tie neatly into Severin's Mattei thing they've got going right now. I'd also really like to see Gestapo's Last Orgy released in HD, but I'm guessing it's hard ti find decent elements of that one, since the DVD looks rather rough (I compared the Severin release to the Swedish Njuta Films release, and surprisingly the Njuta actually looks a tad better).

haha a genetic mutant eating pubic hair, well that's pretty disgusting, but also it probably will be what makes me have to see this movie lol. Is this monster the same guy that was in Salon Kitty? He looks like he'd eat pubic hair and enjoy it. I remember one Nazi film haha it was so funny, I can't remember if it was this one or another now, but the guy had his nuts removed and transplanted to a general, and the guy didn't realize his nuts were gone till he tried to fuck some skanky slut, but then he was like AHAHHAHHAHAHHA my nuts are gone and he went nuts and killed everyone lol

I agree on Women's Camp 119. I've only seen it once & remember it as pretty over the top. Not sure that's truly how the movie plays out but I'd be giddy if it ever gets announced for a bd release.

Yep, it was Salvatore Baccaro (aka 'Sal Boris'). His filmography is pretty extensive but for most people, he's remembered for SALON KITTY and BEAST IN HEAT: https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salvatore_Baccaro

Got this last year as a birthday gift from my parents....

It is ok for a clip/trailer comp. But nothing worth spending more than 5 bucks on.

I remember not really liking BEAST IN HEAT. The movie is so cheap that it's more funny than disturbing. The only scenes I remember are when the guards shoot a baby with machine guns and when the beast rips out a chunk of a girl's vag and chews her pubes.

I also found it underwhelming. Much prefer SS Girls and Gestapo's Last Orgy but they all really fail to top Tinto's Salon Kitty.

It is the easiest on them. "Here's the Discover card..don't spend over 80 bucks."

Use to I have to figure out what store near them would have a copy of what I want. My lady and her family just use Amazon Wishlist to make sure it is something I want and don't have.
