Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS (1975)

Directors: Don Edmonds
Genre: Exploitation


"One Of The Most Notorious And Reviled Films Of Our Time!!!

Dyanne Thorne stars as Ilsa, the insatiable Nazi commandant whose sexual appetites are matched only by her lust for brutality. But as the Allied Forced advance into Germany, her depraved desires and sadistic experiments reach new heights of horror. What will be the final solution to Ilsa's reign of terror -- the desperate actions of the Reich…or the heinous revenge of the damned?

Ilsa: She Wolf Of The SS is a film so controversial that even legendary exploitation producer David F. Friedman had his name removed! Shot in secrecy on the sets of Hogan's Heroes, this oft-banned epic is still as shocking today as it was over 25 years ago" - from DVD Pacific

My oppinion:
This is an incredible movie! I almost felt ashamed just for seeing this one, and that doesn't happen often.. You'll get loads of sleaze and gore, all mixed together. It's nothing like Jess Franco's WIP movies as Franco's work is usually much "nicer" then this one. This Ilsa movie is also much rougher then Franco's "Ilsa, the Wicked Warden" (which isn't really an official part of the series). The brutality starts off pretty early with a castration scene. You don't get to see the cutting, but I really thought that was just as well. I don't know if I'd like to see that really.. There are lots of disgusting (and at times very funny) scenes in this one. One scene that'll always stay with me is one where Ilsa is trying to "please" a visiting nazi-general. Just listen and look at Ilsa's facial expression. That really cracked me up! I sure won't forget this one anytime soon!
This is pretty extreme and a true classic of the genre!
